Dream Team fantasy football: The best player from every Premier League club this season

With another Premier League season done and dusted, we take a look back at the best players from each club across the Dream Team campaign

With the culmination of the Premier League season, there’s already a vast football-shaped hole in our lives.

And with the lack of a major tournament this summer, things will be a little different to last year.

But it’s time to look back the season, which saw Chelsea crowned as champions, Tottenham ‘applied the pressure’ once again but fell short and Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland are all saying goodbye to the top flight.

And today we’re looking at this season’s top performing players per club on Dream Team points.

Here we go:

Arsenal – Alexis Sanchez (340 points)

It probably won’t surprise too many of you that the Gunners talisman is by-far and large their highest points scorer this season.

In fact, with 31 goals and 13 assists in all competitions this season, Sanchez became the first player to reach double figures for both goals and assists in the Premier League and finished the season as Dream Team’s top points scorer.

Bournemouth – Josh King (147 points)

King has been one of Dream Team’s worst kept secrets this season, after topping the Cherries scoring charts this season with 16 goals; that’s more than Eden Hazard, Jermain Defoe and Christian Benteke.

Burnley – Sam Vokes (140 points)

Vokes just edges his teammate Michael Keane for Dream Team points this season, with a respectable tally of 13 goals in all competitions for Sean Dyche’s side.

Chelsea – Eden Hazard (249 points)

It’s been a season of redemption for Hazard, who leads the way in terms of Dream Team points for Chelsea this season.

At times, the Belgium midfielder ran the show for the Blues has they sailed to the league title in Antonio Conte’s first season with the club.

Crystal Palace – Christian Benteke (180 points)

The towering striker put his Liverpool woes behind him this season by leading the line for Palace, helping the Eagles battle against relegation with a return of 17 goals in all competitions.

Everton – Romelu Lukaku (247 points)

Who else? Another high-flying Belgium, Lukaku battled Spurs’ Harry Kane all the way to the final day of the season for the Premier League Golden Boot award.

Hull – Harry Maguire (74 points)

We can all agree that it was a pretty miserable season back in the Premier League for Hull, but defender Harry Maguire has been one of the few shining-lights for the Tigers.

Leicester – Jamie Vardy (153 points)

Vardy’s season in the Premier League mirrored the run of his club, with a barren-spell finally coming to an end in December, while the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri and the interim appointment of Craig Shakespeare ushering in a resurgence of sorts for club and player.

Liverpool – Philippe Coutinho (201 points)

One of Dream Team’s most selected players, Coutinho is just ahead of his compatriot Roberto Firmino as Liverpool’s top points scorer this season.

Man City – Sergio Aguero (307 points)

In many ways, it’s been a difficult season for Sergio Aguero. The Argentinian has struggled to win over manager Pep Guardiola, but still managed to hit 33 goals in all competitions and lead the way for City in Dream Team points.

Man United – Zlatan Ibrahimovic (290 points)

He came, he saw, he conquered. Zlatan silenced all the doubters by leading the line for United in his first season in England. With 28 goals in all competitions, the 35-year-old clearly still has the appetite for goals.

Middlesbrough – Alvaro Negredo (99 points)

The less said about Boro’s season, the better. But Spanish forward Negredo did his best to give fans something to remember, with 10 goals in all competitions.

Southamtpon – Virgil van Dijk (152 points)

Van Dijk finishes the season as the Saints highest points scorer, despite being out since January with an ankle injury. Expect him to dominate the back pages in the summer, with a host of clubs chasing the Dutchman.

Spurs – Harry Kane (305 points)

It’s been a strong season for Spurs players in Dream Team, with four players reaching 200+ points. The pick of the bunch was the Premier League’s top goalscorer Harry Kane, whose 29 goals in the league this season pipped Lukaku’s tally.

Stoke – Peter Crouch (107 points)

Surprise, surprise. Crouchy has shown us all he’s still got it by notching seven goals in the Premier League this season and leading the Stoke boys on Dream Team points.

Sunderland – Jermain Defoe (105 points)

The Black Cats’ 10-year stay in the Premier League may have finally come to an end after a wretched campaign, but they still had plenty to shout about with Defoe up front.

Swansea – Gylfi Sigurdsson (163 points)

The guy who’s pretty much run the show for the Swans all season, the Icelandic midfielder is ahead of striker Fernando Llorente in Dream Team points for Swansea this season. He’s one Paul Clement will be desperate to hold onto this summer.

No one can deny Gylfi Sigurdsson has been Swansea’s highest performer this season

Watford – Troy Deeney (102 points)

It’s been a pretty mundane season for the Hornets, with Deeney more-or-less the sides most consistent points scorer.

West Brom – Gareth McAuley (118 points)

Here’s another Dream Team favourite. Goal scoring centre-back McAuley has been essential to the Baggies’ season, notching six goals in the Premier League.

West Ham – Robert Snodgrass (119 points)

A far cry from the Hammers top points scorer last season (we won’t say his name out loud), Snoddy has had a fine campaign by all accounts, albeit mostly for Hull before his January switch to London.

Can’t wait for next season? Here’s everything you need to know about the Dream Team game – which will be back and better than ever in 2017/18.
