Mohamed Salah bemoans his Fantasy Premier League price and names Liverpool teammate who is always his first pick

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has admitted his Fantasy Premier League price is way too high – but he still picks himself.

Salah is usually one of the higher picks in the FPL due to his extraordinary record in front of goal.

Last season, he scored 19 times in the Premier League and recorded 12 assists – making him one of the best players in the FPL as he collected 239 points.

But with a price of £12.5million, Salah has admitted his price is too high – though he would still put himself in his team.

After being told of his price, the Egyptian said: “Again? It is too expensive for people to buy me!

“But I know. I get the most points every season. So, it’s fine.

“It is [a fair price], but people want to buy me all the time so you have to put the price down!”

Salah was also asked who gets in his side no matter what and immediately he said himself.

He also included his Liverpool teammate Alisson, who is the most expensive goalkeeper in the game.

But he was torn on whether or not Trent Alexander-Arnold or Andy Robertson took his third slot from the Reds.

The two defenders are also among the most expensive options while they are often the most-picked across the globe due to their regular assists.

When asked who are his top three picks, Salah said: “Myself. Alisson. It is tricky between Trent and Robbo.

“I am not just choosing from Liverpool, they are always in my team.

“I said, Ali is always in the team. Sometimes I choose Robbo, sometimes I choose Trent.

“Because you know you have three choices from each team.”

Salah has already started the season where he left off, registering a fine assist against Chelsea on Liverpool’s first game of the season.

He also had a goal chalked off while he will be licking his lips at the prospect of playing Bournemouth, who he has scored eight against in eight matches.

So if you’re still pondering who to captain this week (that isn’t Erling Haaland), the Liverpool star is not a bad shout.
