How does Premier League fantasy football work?

Every single season the Premier League gets more intriguing – and playing Dream Team really is the perfect way to enhance your experience of it.

You’ll be assigned a total budget of £50m for each side you pick and you’ll be able pick a maximum of 10 free teams.

The Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday, effectively meaning the new Game Week starts after the last Europa League games are completed.

Unai Emery was appointed as Arsenal's new manager yesterday and immediately thrust into his first press conference

Emery and Arsenal will tackle the Europa League this season

You get three transfers a month on the first Friday of every month so using them wisely is essential.

Every player on the game will be assigned a price at the start of the season which will then vary and fluctuate on a weekly basis dependent on their performances.

For example, last season we valued Mo Salah at £4m at the start of the season but the Egyptian King rocketed to over £11m by the end after his stunning goalscoring form.

Make sure to check out our website or app to see how our simplistic points system works.

Fred £2.5m

Brazilian is known for his consistent performances in Ukraine.

Paul Pogba – £5m

World Cup winner set to improve on last season’s 135 points tally.


How much can you win?

There’s a massive £250k up for grabs with the Season game this season, whilst there’ll be at least £5k on the table for Weekender every single weekend.

As a little flavour of what Weekender is all about, this Stoke fan won a whopping £20k the same weekend his side were relegated. Bittersweet?
