We all know the importance of having bragging rights over your mates when it comes to fantasy football and the Premier League.
A WhatsApp group with your mates can be a cruel and unforgiving place if you happened to predict a score wrong or criticised a player who eventually became a superstar.
The worst form of ridicule however is the embarrassment that comes with finishing last in your fantasy football mini league, a fate you wouldn’t wish upon your worst enemy.

Brazilian is known for his consistent performances in Ukraine.

World Cup winner set to improve on last season’s 135 points tally.
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.
