These are the Dream Team players everyone’s been DITCHING in March and April

We've looked at the top five players everyone's been taking out of their teams in recent weeks

It’s time to be ruthless.

As we head into the final couple of months of the Premier League season, it’s important to start ditching the players in your Dream Team who consistently under-perform.

We’re looking at you, Paul Pogba.

After taking a look at our metrics since the start of March, here’s the five players Dream Team managers have been taking out of their teams the most in recent weeks.

He might become a quadruple winner by the end of the season, but Man City’s ever-present defender has been by-far the most transferred out player since the beginning of March.

We imagine that’s mostly because he picked up a nasty knock in the Carabao Cup final at the end of February – which threatened to keep him out for a good few weeks.

But even before then, the Laporte fantasy football hype-train had slowed considerably after a series of poor performances around the turn of the year.

Perhaps we’re being a little harsh, as he’s still racked up 180 points this season and his form has picked up considerably in recent weeks.

It was always going to be difficult for Salah to replicate his brilliant fantasy football return of last season.

The Egyptian King scored over 400 points on Dream Team in 2017-2018 to top our points chart, but he looks unlikely to repeat the feat this term.

Perhaps that’s why he’s been transferred out in droves over the last few weeks, with the Liverpool forward failing to justify his heavy price tag by notching just 17 points in his last nine Game Weeks.

PEA has been a Dream Team favourite this season, with 30% of managers selecting the Arsenal striker in their team.

But his form since February has been somewhat alarming; with him netting just four times in his last 12 appearances for the side.

Not exactly the stats of an elite striker, right?

Unsurprisingly then, plenty of you have been taking the Gabonese out of your teams – perhaps even trading him in for his in-form teammate Alexandre Lacazette?

4 Kevin De Bruyne

It’s been a tricky old season for De Bruyne.

He’s been in and out of City’s line-up since August after an injury-plagued campaign and his Dream Team popularity has suffered as a result.

He was one of the best players on the game last season, but his total of 101 points so far this term is lower than the likes of City teammates Oleksandr Zinchenko and Danilo.

5 Paul Pogba

What a frustrating player Pogba is, eh?

The Frenchman had a sensational few months after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became Man United’s caretaker manager, scoring 106 of his 179 points this season in a 13-game spell up until their FA Cup win at Chelsea.

But since then, Pogba has failed to add ANYTHING to his score. Absolutely zilch.

So quite frankly, we hardly blame you for transferring the midfielder out of your teams this month.
