5 in-form players you should pick for your Dream Team this weekend

It’s certainly been a terrific week for English teams in Europe.

There’s four top-flight sides in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and a further two in the same stage of the Europa League.

But with the dreaded international break on the horizon, we’ve got to make the most of club football while we can this weekend with some tantalising Premier League and FA Cup action.

But which in-form players should you be picking for your Dream Team?

“Have you picked me?”

It turns out West Ham’s wonderkid is one of the Dream Team hacks of the season, as the young midfielder is actually down as a ‘defender’ on our game.

So if you like to cheat the system and pack your back-line with quasi-defenders, then Rice could be your man.

What’s more, England’s latest hot prospect will face goal-shy Huddersfield at the London Stadium on Saturday – meaning there’s a decent chance you’ll pick up a lovely clean-sheet bonus.

2 Andrew Robertson – £5.0m

Who doesn’t love picking an attacking defender or two in their Dream Team?

Marauding full-backs are all the rage when it comes to fantasy football, with Robertson the pick of the bunch this season.

Widely considered the best left-back in the world right now, Robbo’s certainly proven to be adept in both defence and attack – having notched 10 assists in all competitions so far.

He might enjoy himself in Liverpool’s trip to Fulham this weekend.

3 Sadio Mane – £5.5m

We went absolutely bonkers for Mohamed Salah last season, as the Egyptian King finished up with over 400 points on Dream Team.

But this term it’s all about Liverpool’s other striker Mane, who’s the Reds’ man in form right now.

In Game Week 28, he scored an eye-watering 36 fantasy football points thanks to his double-brace against Burnley and then Bayern Munich, taking his tally up to 19 goals for the season.

4 Callum Wilson – £4.4m

Wilson salutes you

It’s been a frustrating few weeks for Wilson, with the Bournemouth striker in and out of the side after suffering back-to-back injuries since January.

But he made his return last time out in the Cherries win over Huddersfield, netting the opener in their 2-0 win.

Just in time too, as he’s worked his way back into Gareth Southgate’s England squad AND the hearts and minds of fantasy football fans.

5 Gabriel Jesus – £4.8m

What would Pep do?

Sergio Aguero is surely due a good rest after a season of being Man City’s first-choice attacker.

So perhaps he’ll sit out of their FA Cup clash with Swansea this weekend, giving Jesus his chance to shine.

The Brazilian came off the bench and netted one of the seven goals in their thrashing of Schalke midweek, so will certainly be sharp for the trip to south Wales.
