Deadly from the penalty spot. Not so much anywhere else

So who hit the ground running last season?

Which players have risen to the top of the fantasy football rankings in their first season at a new club?

1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Man United)

The big Swede took to the the Premier League with the swagger that we’ve all come to expect, scoring 17 league goals before a knee injury ended his season.

With 290 points Ibrahimovic is the second highest scoring player in Dream Team, with only Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez ahead of the 35-year-old.

2 Paul Pogba (Man United)

What does £89million get you in the transfer market? Well, for starters, 218 Dream Team points.

Man United’s Europa League campaign means Pogba played 49 games in all competitions, a figure only Sanchez, Marcus Rashford, Dele Alli and Nathan Redmond can match.

3 Christian Benteke

Bentekerz was, and still is, Crystal Palace’s club record signing when he moved from Liverpool in a £27million deal.

The 26-year-old’s 15 goals are a major reason why Palace stayed up, netting him 177 Dream Team points. Avoiding relegation or Dream Team points? We know what’s more important

If ever a player was born to play for Sam Allardyce…

4 Marcos Alonso (Chelsea)

Eyebrows were raised when the former Bolton and Sunderland defender arrived at Stamford Bridge as part of Antonio Conte’s revolution.

But with 167 points he’s the highest scoring defensive signing, putting to bed any doubt about his ability to play for a top club.

5 Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Ooh, Mane Mane, duh duh duh duh, duh duh.

A certified success since arriving from Liverpool, with 149 points to his name. Soon to be joined by at least five other Southampton players.
