You’re enjoying this break from Premier League football, aren’t you?
No, neither are we.
But while we’re taking a step back from the good stuff this week, we certainly don’t plan on neglecting our Dream Team, especially with the busy festive period coming up.

As we reach the middle of November, table-toppers Man City have certainly proven to be the team to beat, which means many of their players have been firm Dream Team favourites this season.
But for some reason, their midfield wizard David Silva remains a little overlooked and under-picked at the moment, with only 10% of managers selecting the Spaniard.
That’s all the more strange considering he’s been particularly brilliant recently, picking up 26 points in his last three outings alone.
Netting seven goals in all competitions this season – including the opener in their win over Man United last weekend – Silva has proven once again to be City’s creative hub.
In fact, his in-game influence has been all the more important this term as Kevin De Bruyne remains out of the side through injury.
With KDB on the sidelines, we figured Silva – who is valued at £5.7m right now – would be the obvious choice as his fantasy football replacement.
But instead, we’ve seen the likes of Paul Pogba (17.9%), Willian (16.2%) and Bernardo Silva (11.7%) chosen ahead of him, despite Silva’s haul of 91 points being better than all three – and the fourth-best on the game overall.
We really do think it’s time to start seriously considering Silva for your midfield.
After all, City have already ticked off some of their big fixtures this season, including the away trip to Liverpool in October and the always tricky Manchester derby.
That means their next few fixtures are relatively favourable, including their trip to West Ham next week.
And with City’s great form showing no signs of letting up, it’s definitely time for thousands of you without Silva in your team to transfer the City midfielder in – before his price begins to rise.
