That’s why we love the Premier League and fantasy football.

We can officially kiss goodbye to the prospect of an invincible team this season after Liverpool’s rip-roaring win over Manchester City.

Liverpool look like real title contenders... for next season, that is

Liverpool exposed City’s weaknesses

Arsenal and Chelsea continued their desperate form but Tottenham battered Everton to stay in the hunt.

And West Ham? Well what can you say about the Moysiah?

It all made for another exhilarating weekend for Dream Team fans, but which bargains do we think you should keep monitoring after impressive seasons?

We’ve picked out seven of the best…

1 Riyad Mahrez (£5.7m) – 115 points

Riyad Mahrez wants a move to Arsenal, according to the latest reports

Mahrez is well on course to make double figures for goals and assists

How Mahrez hasn’t engineered a move to a bigger club yet is baffling.

He’s bagged eight goals and seven assists in all competitions and averages 4.6 points a game, higher than Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Leroy Sane.

2 Davinson Sanchez (£3.4m) – 69 points

Sanchez has been an astute signing

Sanchez has been a regular stalwart in Tottenham’s consistently resolute defence this season.

The Colombian has looked shaky at times but at such a cut price is £2m cheaper than the likes of Phil Jones (£5.5m) and Dejan Lovren (£5.3m).

3 Manuel Lanzini (£3.5m) – 59 points

Lanzini makes West Ham tick

Lanzini is on the charge with David Moyes’ resurgent West Ham and was on the scoresheet twice in the 4-1 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.

The little Argentine has only been picked by 0.6% of people but averages more points per game than team-mate Marko Arnautovic, Cesc Fabregas and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

4 Jordan Pickford (£2.8m) – 47 points

Jordan Pickford could do nothing to prevent Manchester United taking the lead

Pickford has been much improved since Allardyce’s arrival

Pickford’s price plummeted after a torrid start to the season but Big Sam’s arrival – aside from the defeat at Tottenham on Saturday – has brought a newfound organisation to Everton.

The England stopper is cheap as chips and has collected more points than both Liverpool goalkeepers.

5 Marcus Rashford (£3.7m) – 111 points

Rashford has hit the three figure mark for points

Rashford has hit the three figure mark for points

Breaking the 100 point barrier is a mean feat regardless of who you are and Rashford’s performances this season have gone under the radar this season.

He plays a lot of games but has scored more points than team-mate Anthony Martial, Alvaro Morata and Alexis Sanchez.

6 Harry Maguire (£3.4m) – 79 points

Harry Maguire is a £50m transfer target for Manchester City

Maguire has blossomed at Leicester

Leicester pulled off one of the signings of the summer when they snapped up Maguire from Hull and he’s developed into a fine centre-back.

He’s now likely to start for England at the World Cup and his eye for a goal makes him a fantasy football favourite.

7 Arthur Masuaku (£3.6m) – 76 points

Masuaku has developed into a fine player at West Ham and is at his most dangerous playing at left wing back where he can foray forward.

The Hammers defender has more points than Gary Cahill and Serge Aurier this season.
