Community XI: Comparison


Salah or Mane? Sterling or De Bruyne? Wilson or King? There’s some big decisions to be made for your Gameweek 1 team.

The Fantasy Football Community bring the toughest FPL comparison in these Fantasy Premier League Tips.

1. Kearney

Matt Kearney kicks the comparison off with Salah vs Mane. With Salah returning from the African Cup of Nations sooner than Mane, it’s the Egyptian who has the momentum where FPL comparison is concerned!

2. Prince

FPL Prince crunches the numbers on last season. This pair were level on goals, sharing the Golden Boot, but Mane got very close to Salah in FPL points despite playing less minutes. Tempted by the one million pound saving?

3. Pundits

Fantasy Football Pundits are tipping Kevin De Bruyne as the ultimate enabler. Downgrading Sterling to the Belgian saves a cool 2.5 million of the fantasy budget and he’s a proven FPL asset despite being hampered by injury last season.

4. Renegades

Renegades crunches the numbers of whether we should go Sterling or KDB. The price differential is important here, with two players who can achieve similar points over the course of the season, fitness permitting.

5. Hopcroft

Another dilemma this pre season is between King and Wilson. Adam Hopcroft is so passionate about this that he’s produced 3 statistical comparison tweets. It certainly looks like Wilson could be worth his price tag.

6. Wilson

Scott Wilson from Fantasy Football Pundits is backing his namesake. However, with these budget priced forwards, FPL managers could avoid make a tricky comparison and go with both Cherries strikers for their opening two games.

7. Fix

Moving things to defence, the most expensive defenders in the game are Liverpool’s full backs, Robertson and Alexander-Arnold. Both priced at 7 million, they offer different qualities.

8. Bet

Fantasy Bet bring the comparison of this pair to YouTube as they establish their channel. There’s plenty of analysis here and it’s the right back who seems to have the edge!

9. James

Salah and Mane, plus King and Wilson get the FPL James comparison treatment in this Twitter thread. One brings obvious results, but making choices with the Cherries remains tough.

10. Martin

FPL Tactician, Andy Martin, considers some of the thoughts in FPL managers minds. The comparison between certain players is clear and price confinements shouldn’t mean we go for a poor cover.

11. Editor

The FPL Editor has spotted a trend in downgrades in the Fantasy Football Community. The temptation is clear, but it’s obvious who the superior asset is in each comparison!
