It’s fair to say that Newcastle – like their fellow promotees Huddersfield and Brighton – have enjoyed a decent start to life back in the top-flight.

The Magpies head into the weekend in the top 10 of the Premier League table, despite their defeat to Burnley on Monday.

And one player who’s arguably stood out the most for Rafa Benitez’s side is captain Lascelles, who’s already shaping up to be a Dream Team favourite – having already amassed 37 points this season.

Struggling Bournemouth visit St. James’ Park this weekend, and at just £4.1m, it might be time you snapped up this in-form defender while he’s still so affordable.

2 Kurt Zouma

Zouma has started all but one game for the Potters this season

Speaking of Dream Team favourites…

Zouma’s loan move to Stoke is shaping up to be a pretty good piece of summer business by Mark Hughes, with the Frenchman quickly establishing himself as one of club’s most important players this season.

With a WhoScored rating of 7.26, coupled with the 28 points he’s amassed on Dream Team, the youngster looks like an absolute steal on the game, priced at just £2.4m.

We implore you to get him ahead of Stoke’s game against Leicester this weekend.

3 Robbie Brady

Brady is one of Dream Team’s best-loved bargain buys this season

Quite possibly the best bargain buy on Dream Team this season is Burnley’s Brady.

With 48 points, the bargain midfielder – priced at £4.0m – is rubbing shoulders with the very best on fantasy football, and is clearly a big part of the Clarets incredible run.

Sean Dyche’s side – who are currently in the top seven of the Premier League – face Southampton this weekend, and will clearly want to continue their push up the table.

4 Raheem Sterling

Man City are an absolute joy to watch this season.

Not only that, but the table-toppers have been a rich source of fantasy football mainstays this season, with Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker among Dream Team’s most picked players so far this term.

Another popular pick on the game is Sterling, who’s transformation under Pep Guardiola has been simply sensational.

The winger has scored seven times in the Premier League so far this campaign, putting him joint-second behind Harry Kane.

Will he add to his tally against Arsenal this weekend?

5 Dele Alli

The Spurs man netted twice against Champions League holders Real Madrid during the week

Another young Englishman who’s looking very good ahead of this summer’s World Cup is Alli.

The midfielder was chief-tormentor in Spurs’ Champions League win over Real Madrid during the week, and will be keen to carry that fantastic form against bottom-of-the-pack Crystal Palace on Sunday.

6 Sergio Aguero

Aguero broke Man City’s all-time goalscorer record against Napoli

He’s back guys, and guess what? He’s now Man City’s all-time goalscorer.

It was only a matter of time before the Argentinian surpassed Eric Brook’s record, after netting againsy Napoli in the Champions League midweek.

So we imagine he’s full of confidence going into Gameweek 11.

Get ‘im in, folks. You won’t regret it.

7 Tammy Abraham

Abraham has been picked for England’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil

Swansea’s go-to guy upfront this season looks all set to make his first appearance for England next week, having been called up to Gareth Southgate’s squad for the first time.

The youngster has hit four goals in the Premier League for the struggling Swans so far this term, and we expect his confidence to be through the roof ahead of their home clash against Brighton this weekend.

Now looks like a very good time to include the youngster in your Dream Team.
