Fantasy Premier League GW20 Review: Should We Keep or Sell Salah?

Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah (£13.2m) has enjoyed an undeniably great season so far, as Liverpool look to make yet another title charge. And in terms of FPL, the Egyptian has the highest points tally out of anyone in the entire league, making him an undisputed essential.

However now a big decision needs to be made, as The Reds’ winger won’t be available for the foreseeable future with the Africa Cup of Nations on the horizon. My advice would be that you only get rid on the condition that you keep the spare change for when he returns from international duty, as spending the leftovers will leave you in a tricky predicament, especially if you’re without a wildcard.


Watchlist: Ones to Watch


Michael Olise (£5.9m) netted a brace to continue his electric run of form, finishing with class in both instances. The Frenchman has bagged just under 40 points in 4 games, all of which have been against tough opposition. And whilst the value of the Palace star is great, I’d recommend just giving him a little more time to prove his consistency before diving in.


From one French starlet to another, Alphonse Areola (£4.2m) has found himself on a similar trajectory to that of Olise’s,picking up just under 30 points in 3. The Hammers’ have kept 4 clean-sheets on the bounce, and now face Sheffield United on the road, which could prove to be another fixture full of points for the French international.


Final Thoughts: Unavailability Decisions


As the Asian Cup along with the Africa Cup of Nations approach us, I’m sure you’ve noticed that key FPL options like Son (£9.9m), Kudus (6.9m) as well as the previously mentioned Mohammed Salah are now unavailable for the time being.


My advice would be to happily get rid of cheaper players like Kudus and Hwang (£5.7m), as they can easily be brought back upon their return. As I said at the start however, only take away the more premium options like Son and Salah if you’re going to keep the loose cash for when they become available again.
