There’s only FIVE more Gameweeks left to go and just one more chance to make changes to your Dream Team, with three more transfers available at the start of May.
But don’t panic.
If you need that final little push to secure the top spot of your mini-league, then here’s five players you really need to consider snapping up who are guaranteed to snag you some serious points.
Virgil van Dijk – £5.5m
Not only do Liverpool have a fairly favourable run-in as the season reaches it’s finale, but they also have a potential Champions League final to think about.
Hey, more games means more potential points, right?
Stoke, Chelsea and Brighton are the Reds final three Premier League opponents, while there’s that second-leg of the semi-final with Roma next week.
So why not go for Van Dijk, who’s notched 92 points since joining from Southampton in January and has been the catalyst for their defensively sound second-half of the season.
Luka Milivojevic – £4.8m
We absolutely love this guy here at Dream Team.
Milivojevic has been one of the hidden gems of fantasy football this season, having notched nine goals since the start of December and has averaged five points a game since February.
That includes three eight-point returns in a row.
If Palace are going to stay up this season, they’ll certainly be looking to this guy for inspiration.
They’re currently six points ahead of the drop-zonem with games against Leicester, Stoke and West Brom on the horizon.
Ander Herrera – £2.4m
You won’t find a player in the current top four who’s a bigger bargain than this guy at the moment.
And what’s more, Herrera could rake in the points as Man United reach the climax of their season.
He was on target against Spurs at the weekend, nabbing the winner in their hotly contested semi-final clash.
He’ll be an important figure in the Cup final against Chelsea as well.
Remember how great he was in the Europa League final last season?
Loves a final, this guy.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – £5.6m
We’re still pretty disappointed that this guy won’t play any role in Arsenal’s Europa League campaign.
But his ability to find the back of the net in the Premier League more than makes up for his absence.
So far, Aubameyang’s managed six goals in the league and will be one of the favourites for next season’s Golden Boot.
In the meantime, we fancy picking him for our Dream Team, with the Gunners facing old foes Man United at Old Trafford before taking on Burnley, Leicester and Huddersfield.
Harry Kane – £9.6m
Who else but Harry?
This guy’s gunning for a third Premier League Golden Boot award and – even though he’s currently trailing top-scorer Mohamed Salah – we wouldn’t bet against him.
Kane netted seven goals in the final two games of last season to snatch the gong away from Romelu Lukaku and what’s betting he goes in a similar goal-scoring frenzy this term?
With that in mind, plus the fact that Liverpool might want to give Salah a little bit of a rest for their Champions League run, we reckon a goal-hungry Kane is exactly the sort of guy you need in your Dream Team as we ride into the sunset of the season.
