GW16 Team news: Salah and Sterling set for recalls

The Scout says the Liverpool and Man City wingers are poised to start once more in Gameweek 16

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) are both expected to boost their Fantasy Premier League owners by returning to their starting XIs in Gameweek 16.

The Liverpool and Manchester City wingers disappointed millions of FPL managers in midweek when they were named on the bench for their respective sides.

Salah emerged to supply an assist at Burnley but Sterling remained an unused substitute in a 2-1 win at Watford.

After having their minutes managed, both are set to return from the start this weekend.

Salah will be among the captain favourites away to AFC Bournemouth.

Shaqiri option

Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m) could earn a fifth successive start for Liverpool as Sadio Mane (£9.7m) is expected to miss out with a foot problem.

Andrew Robertson (£6.5m) can punish his Gameweek 16 sellers after being passed fit for the Vitality Stadium match.

The Liverpool left-back has been sold by over 104,000 managers, more than any other defender.

Sterling's return for City is offset by the continued absence of Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) for the trip to Chelsea.

Jesus and Aubameyang

Gabriel Jesus (£10.1m) has started the last two matches with the Argentinian out injured.

Although he has not scored, Jesus's seven shots from inside the penalty area over Gameweeks 14-15 are more than any other player.

But, it is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) who has been the most popular replacement for Aguero among FPL managers.

Over 202,000 have made the direct swap from Aguero to the Arsenal forward for his home match with Huddersfield Town.
