Sterling was one of the surprise packages of last season, as he enjoyed the best campaign on his career to date with Man City.

The 23-year-old racked up a mammoth 265 points in last year’s fantasy football game, with most of those points coming through his goalscoring antics.

Sterling scored 23 goals last season and seemed to grow in confidence every week under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad.

As he is priced up at £6m, Sterling is far from a cheap option for Dream Team managers this season.

You get what you pay for however and the lightning quick winger will get you goals in a City team sprinkled with superstars.

Mane is a player who could have perhaps been listed as a striker in this year’s fantasy football game.

The Liverpool man racked up a hefty 244 points in fantasy football last year and was one of Liverpool most prolific players behind Mohamed Salah.

The 26-year-old bagged 20 goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side last season, including one in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Priced up at £6m and with the loophole in his position listing in this year’s fantasy football game, Mane is guaranteed to be a popular choice for Dream Team managers this season.

3 Eden Hazard – £6m

The Belgium has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge

Hazard was one of the only bright sparks in what was an otherwise disappointing campaign for Antonio Conte’s side.

The 27-year-old picked up an impressive 281 points in last year’s fantasy football game, chipping in with 17 goals for the Blues.

Hazard however might not be with Chelsea for much longer, with rumours of a big-money move to Real Madrid building up momentum.

If the Belgium wizard does remain at Stamford Bridge however, he will surely be a player who Dream Team managers would be more than willing to part with £6m for.

4 Christian Eriksen – £6m

Eriksen has been one of Spurs’ best performers since they snapped him up from Ajax in 2013.

The 26-year-old has thrived in the Premier League and has since become one of the best creative midfielders in Europe.

Eriksen also posses a large goal threat alongside his playmaking antics, as he netted 15 times for Spurs last season.

The Dane picked up an impressive 220 points in last year’s fantasy football game and is expected to be another top performer this season.

Eriken is priced at £6m and will no doubt be a popular choice for Dream Team managers.

5 Leroy Sane – £5m

Sane was one of the standout players in Guardiola’s machine-like City side last season, chipping in with an impressive 14 goals from a wide area.

The winger stacked up 207 points in last year’s fantasy football game and was even rewarded with the PFA Young Player of the Year award after his impressive campaign.

The winger was a surprise omission from Joachim Low’s World Cup squad with Germany and will look to prove his doubters wrong this season.

Priced at £5m in this year’s fantasy football game, Sane is a relative steal and could be an enticing prospect for Dream Team managers this season.
