The world of fantasy football is a competitive place, and players have been engrossed with chopping and changing their teams throughout the season to try and maximise the amount of points they can get. However, with the season still at such a tender age, it can be difficult for fans when thinking about dropping a player just because they’ve had a tough opening to the season.
Decisions with fantasy football are similar to what you will find with VIP Casino. You will need to find the perfect opportunity to twist and take the right chance to pocket your earnings. Fantasy football changes on such a recurring basis that it can be difficult to decide when the right time to take out an underperforming player is. However, those that have started the season in form will be undroppable in the minds of fantasy players. Here’s the ultimate fantasy team that you could have after the most recent matchday in the Premier League.
Goalkeeper- Lukas Fabianski
The West Ham goalkeeper is one of the underrated talents in the entire division, and he has started the season brilliantly. So far he has topped up to 31 points, and he is the most in-form goalkeeper in the division. His stats are surprising considering that he has only been picked by 5.3% of fantasy players. The Hammers have aspirations of finishing in the top six this season, and with Fabianski between the sticks, they could have a great chance.
Defender- John Lundstram
One of the hidden gems in the Premier League this season is Sheffield United’s John Lundstram. He is down as a defender on the fantasy database, which is a huge advantage since he actually plays in midfield for the Blades. This circumstance has been noticed by 26% of fantasy players. The Blades have enjoyed a strong start to the season, and the form of Lundstram has been vital towards that.
Defender- Trent Alexander-Arnold
It would be no surprise to anybody that Liverpool’s young full-back is among the highest-scoring players. His 31 points so far are only topped by Lundstram, but it would be a surprise if he doesn’t overtake the current leader. The Liverpool man topped the assist charts last season alongside Andrew Robertson, and you would predict that he could be in the running for the same accolade this season.
Defender- Jannik Vestergaard
Another surprise leader among the defenders is Southampton’s Jannik Vestergaard. The tall defender has been an integral member of the Ralph Hassenhuttl regime and his performances so far this season have been inspired. He won the most points during the Saints recent clash with Manchester United, as the central defender won the man of the match accolade and also got himself on the score sheet.
Defender- Erik Pieters
Burnley signed Erik Pieters from Stoke City in the most recent transfer window, and he has quickly adapted to life back in the Premier League. His form has been consistent throughout the season so far and has quickly mustered up a relationship with Burnley’s attacking players. He assisted three goals in the opening two games, with all of them scored by Ashley Barnes.
Midfield- Kevin De Bruyne
The undoubted star of the season so far has been Manchester City’s midfield dynamo Kevin De Bruyne. It almost seems impossible to believe that City were able to win the league title last season with the Belgium international playing a significant role. He has already registered 54 points this campaign, and 38.6% of players have him in their team.
Midfield- Mohamed Salah
Another hidden gem in the database is Salah as he is down as a midfielder which means you can earn lots of points on a weekly basis by having various attackers in your team even though they don’t play in a deeper position. Salah has been somewhat outshone so far this campaign by Sadio Mane, but he has still registered 50 points and has been selected by 41.8% of players.
Midfield- Sadio Mane
Much like Salah, there is an opportunity for players to maximise their returns in fantasy football by having Mane as he is registered as a midfielder despite playing in the forward position. He has already registered 42 points and is one of the top scorers in the division. Liverpool’s aim of winning the league title can only be achieved should Mane be playing at his highest level throughout the season, and the early signs are promising.
Forward- Sergio Aguero
Sergio Aguero is arguably the best striker in the world, and one of the finest players to have ever played in the Premier League. Even at 31-years-old, he is thriving in the top-flight. He has already scored eight goals in six matches this season and has scored in six consecutive games. He should be a certainty for anybody picking their fantasy team, and that has been the case as he has been selected by 28.9% of players. Aguero’s goals will be the difference between City winning the league title or not.
Forward- Teemu Pukki
The rise of Teemu Pukki has been well documented throughout the season, but there were initially questions whether he would be able to score goals in the Premier League. Those doubts have been quickly answered by the striker, who has already scored six goals in six matches. He was picked up by a few fantasy players at the beginning of the campaign, but that percentage has now jumped to a whopping 44.6. Pukki is the goalscorer that will be vital to Norwich City’s survival hopes, and if he can maintain this form, then there is no reason why the Canaries can’t stay up.
Forward- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Last season’s joint-top scorer in the Premier League has started the season in excellent form. He has scored six goals in six and is the talisman for the Gunners. Aubameyang has been selected by 23.8% of fantasy players and could be the vital component for Unai Emery’s side in their battle for a top-four finish.
