GW15 Team news: Shaqiri can prosper

The Scout says Liverpool playmaker can score big for FPL managers if Sadio Mane ruled out of Burnley trip

Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m) may earn another start as Liverpool visit Burnley in Gameweek 15 of Fantasy Premier League.

His fellow winger Sadio Mane (£9.8m) will be assessed after sustaining a cut to his foot ahead of the Turf Moor encounter.

Mane's possible absence could allow Shaqiri a fourth successive appearance in the Liverpool starting XI.

Shaqiri differential

Owned by only 2.8 per cent, Shaqiri can offer FPL managers a big differential for Gameweek 15. He has two goals and four assists in his last eight matches.

Burnley, meanwhile, have conceded 17 goals in the last six Gameweeks.

Alexander-Arnold option

Popular defender Andrew Robertson (£6.5m) also faces a fitness test for Liverpool.

The Scot is the second-most owned defender in FPL, sitting in 33.0 per cent of squads.

Doubts over Robertson are set to raise interest in his team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.3m).

The teenager is the most-bought defender in the Gameweek, earning more than 161,000 new owners after scoring 31 points in his last three matches.

Trippier return?

Managers on the lookout for a premium defender should also consider Kieran Trippier (£6.2m).

The Tottenham Hotspur right-back is available again for a home match with Southampton.

Trippier has one goal and four assists in 11 appearances and is set to embark on a very favourable winter schedule.

According to the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR), only one of Spurs' opponents between Gameweeks 15-27 score more than three.
