FPL Show: Sterling a threat to Salah's place

9 Nov 2018

FPL expert Mark McGettigan on why trading Manchester City winger for Liverpool star can reap rewards

For most of the season Fantasy Premier League managers have been focusing their midfield money on Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Eden Hazard (£11.3m), but is Raheem Sterling (£11.1m) about to force a rethink?

The Manchester City winger got 21 points in Matchweek 11, the highest return of the season so far, and scored in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. His form has been rewarded with an extended contract at City.

FPL expert Mark McGettigan is a happy Salah and Hazard owner, but he says that might change, and it is the Liverpool man whose place is in danger.

"Sterling is hard to ignore,” McGettigan says. “He’s only around 8 per cent-owned at the moment but during the international break he’s going to be in my thoughts and he could be coming in."

McGettigan is tempted to trade Salah, especially if he fails to deliver against Fulham on Sunday.

"He’s going to be my captain and no less than 15 points and he is going to be out the door!" McGettgan says. "When I talk about bringing in Sterling, I am actually quite tempted to lose Salah to unlock some funds."
