Arsenal will enter a new era next season under the guidance of Unai Emery in what could be the start of big things for Gunners and fantasy football fans alike.
After Arsene Wenger stepped down from the helm after 22 years in charge of the Gunners, Emery took charge following his sacking from PSG.
The Spaniard has already been hard at work in pre-season as he implements his new ideas, of which the players seem to have been reacting positively to.
This season could finally be the one where the Gunners mount a serious title challenge, with Emery building a squad jam-packed full of talent and interesting options for Dream Team managers.
Get these Gunners in your Dream Team
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – £5.5m
Forward scored ten goals in half a season.
Aaron Ramsey – £4m
Unai Emery vowed to build his team around the midfielder.
1 Hector Bellerin – £3.5m
Bellerin made an immediate impact at Arsenal when he burst onto the scene as a youngster from Barcelona.
Since his impressive debut season however, the Spaniard’s form has waived, putting him in line for heavy criticism from some supporters.
The 23-year-old has also been without any real competition in his position in recent seasons, however Emery has looked to remedy this with the free-transfer of Stephan Lichtsteiner.
Bellerin has spoken publicly about the positive mood in the camp after the arrival of Emery and insisted that every player will be giving there all to impress the new boss.
The former Barca man picked up a respectable 120 points in last year’s game, a tally you would expect to rise this season if he is given license to be the marauding wing-back we’ve seen before.
Bellerin will set you back just £3.5m in this year’s game, a relative steal considering he is a guaranteed starter in an ever-improving squad.
2 Sead Kolasinac – £2.5m
Kolasinac started life in the Premier League like a bull in a china shop.
The marauding wing-back looked to be a typically shrewd but impressive acquisition from Arsene Wenger, after the Frenchman picked him up on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old made an impressive start, providing a threat going forward as well as strength at the back.
After picking up a hefty 114 points in fantasy football, Kolasinac fell out of favour at the Emirates towards the end of the season.
Now with Emery at the helm, Kolasinac will hope to kick start his Arsenal career this season.
At just £2.5m, the Bosnian defender is a must have for Dream Team managers, considering what he could bring to fantasy football this season.
3 Aaron Ramsey – £4m
Ramsey has emerged as one of Arsenal’s most important players in recent years.
The Welshman, who has scored winners in two FA Cup finals for the Gunners, is in a position of power with just one year left on his current contract.
The 27-year-old is attracting interest from clubs around Europe, with Emery desperate to tie him down to a new contract.
Ramsey picked up 145 points in fantasy football last season, with only Alexandre Lacazette (153) a higher points scorer for the Gunners.
The Welshman is expected to be named Arsenal’s captain if he stays with the club and could be a popular choice for Dream Team managers too, costing just £4m.
4 Mesut Ozil £4.5m
Ozil has suffered a turbulent few weeks in his career of late, all culminating in his retirement from international football with Germany.
Arsenal’s No10 has been a polarising figure ever since his arrival in North London from Real Madrid in 2013.
Ozil is a player with bags of quality and experience, however he fails to always show this consistently and especially not on the big occasions.
The German picked up 130 points in fantasy football last season, an underwhelming total for a player of his quality.
The 29-year-old was given a large vote of confidence from Emery recently after he was named as captain in a recent friendly against PSG.
It is hoped that the change of management will give Ozil’s career the invigoration it so desperately needs.
We’re backing Ozil to come good this season and we think he’s a steal at £4.5m in this year’s game. Famous last words.
5 Pierre Emerick Aubameyang – £5.5m
Aubameyang took to life in the Premier League like a duck to water after joining from Borussia Dortmund in January.
The 29-year-old scored ten goals in 13 league appearances for the Gunners and suitably whetted the appetites of what was to come next season.
The Gabon striker has had a period of time to adapt to English football and is widely tipped to be a major contender for the Golden Boot award.
We would go along with that prediction and back Aubameyang to be even more impressive in his first full season in North London.
Arsenal’s latest No14 can be picked up for just £5.5m in this year’s game, making him an absolute must have in your Dream Team squad.
What are the Dream Team rules?
Every single season the Premier League gets more intriguing – and playing Dream Team really is the perfect way to enhance your experience of it.
You’ll be assigned a total budget of £50m for each side you pick and you’ll be able pick a maximum of 10 free teams.
The Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday, effectively meaning the new Game Week starts after the last Europa League games are completed.
You get three transfers a month on the first Friday of every month so using them wisely is essential.
Every player on the game will be assigned a price at the start of the season which will then vary and fluctuate on a weekly basis dependent on their performances.
For example, last season we valued Mo Salah at £4m at the start of the season but the Egyptian King rocketed to over £11m by the end after his stunning goalscoring form.
