1 It might be time to take Harry Kane out of your Dream Team

This isn’t what we wanted to see, is it?

This isn’t what we wanted to see, is it?

This is the moment you’ve been dreading, Dream Team fans.

Harry Kane – Spurs’ leader and main goal-getter – has picked up a knock and we’re not too sure how long he could be out of action for.

The striker was substituted 30 minutes into Sunday’s match against Bournemouth, after injuring his ankle in a collision with Asmir Begovic.

This is a particularly worrying time for England fans, who’ll be hoping and praying he’s fit and well in time for this summer’s World Cup.

2 …And Sergio Aguero is NOT the guy to replace him with

It was a dreadful weekend all-round for fantasy football connoisseurs, with Sergio Aguero also picking up an injury.

The Argentinian reportedly felt some discomfort in his left knee during a training session at the weekend and will miss Man City’s clash against against Stoke on Monday night.

Behind Kane and Mohamed Salah, Aguero is third in this season’s Dream Team points table with 278.

It’s a good job Gabriel Jesus has just returned from his lengthy spell on the sidelines, as he’ll likely be City’s first-choice starter in Aguero’s absence.

3 Heung-Min Son is shaping up to be a Dream Team must-have 

Form man

We’ve always been a little cautious when it comes to picking Heung-Min Son for fantasy football.

We all know he’s brilliant, but he’s still widely considered a rotation option in Spurs’ line-up.

But lately, the South Korean has been a regular starter – only missing out in the first-leg clash against Juventus in the Champions League a couple of weeks back – and is in the form of his life right now.

He’s netted a brilliant seven times in his last four appearances and has topped the Dream Team points chart in recent weeks.

Might be worth a place in your team as we reach the final months of the season?

4 Gameweek 28 was all about the unlikely points-scorers 

Wood netted twice at the weekend

Wood netted twice at the weekend

Chris Wood, Vicente Iborra, Jonjo Shelvey and Lukasz Fabianski all scored 12 points or more this weekend, which is truly excellent for each of them.

Especially Wood, who was Burnley’s hero against West Ham, notching twice in their 3-0 win.

But what’s even better about these unlikely heroes is that less-than 1% of Dream Team managers currently have them in their line-ups.

Sometimes it’s worth picking an underdog, especially when it comes to Dream Team Weekender.

5  Willian is fast becoming a midfield favourite

Chelsea would be in real trouble without this guy this season

Willian has been one of the most transferred-in players over the last three weeks, following a run of fine performances.

The Brazilian has netted five times in his last five appearances for the Blues – picking up a massive haul of 57 Dream Team points in the process – and he was simply outstanding against Barcelona two weeks ago.

He could be crucial against the Catalan giants in their midweek second-leg clash.
