CURTAIN CALL

5 players to spend your last Dream Team transfers on this season

With the FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League still to play for, there's plenty of fantasy football points up for grabs before the season's through

It’s weird having NO Premier League football on a Saturday, isn’t it?

Makes us kinda dread this long summer of nothingness ahead.

But we’re hoping to make the most of what’s left, with the upcoming FA Cup final, Europa League final AND the Champions League final still on the horizon.

And luckily for you, you can pick up Dream Team points in each of those games before the season’s curtain call, with these five players certainly ones to watch.

Remember, the FA Cup final, Europa League final and Champions League final all fall on different Game Weeks, so you can make transfers ahead of EACH game.

Mohamed Salah (£6.8m)

5

Could this be his year?

While we all agree that Salah was immense last season – topping our Dream Team players’ list with 412 points – the Egyptian King finished his first season at Anfield empty-handed, with Liverpool losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid and Salah himself going off injured before half-time.

But he gets another crack at it this time around, with the Reds up against Spurs in the final.

And he’ll be eager to make up for his disappointment last year – not to mention his absence from the semi-final win over Barcelona.

2 Vincent Kompany (£3.4m)

5

Kompany’s injury problems in recent years haven’t exactly made him a popular Dream Team choice.

But Man City’s captain is a certified Big Game Player™. His thunderbolt against Leicester last week more-or-less tipped the scales in City’s favour as we head into the final weekend of the Premier League season, and he might fancy his chances in the FA Cup final against Watford.

And the Wembley showpiece could have some extra significance to the Belgian, with his contract negotiations at the club still ongoing.

Maybe his last big game for his beloved Blues?

3 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£5.9m)

5

It’s hard to pick between Arsenal and Chelsea for the upcoming Europa League final.

But after his terrific performance against Valencia in the semi-final, we can’t look beyond Aubameyang as the game’s main showman.

The striker has been one of fantasy football’s biggest stars this season, with an impressive haul of 272 points on the game making him the fifth-best player so far.

4 Gerard Deulofeu (£3.2m)

5

We thought we’d throw a left-field option into the mix, just to keep things interesting.

And what’s more, Deulofeu was Watford’s hero in their semi-final game with Wolves, coming off the bench to score twice in their eventual 3-2 win.

But he’ll have his work cut out against Man City in the final, where we’re hoping his Barcelona-upbringing will help him deal with the extra pressure of the big occasion.

5 Harry Kane (£8.0m)

5

Fancy a gamble?

None of us are overly sure whether Kane will play any part in Spurs’ Champions League final match with Liverpool next month.

The 25-year-old hasn’t featured in a match in over a month due to injury, though he could make a timely return for the Madrid final on June 1.

After Spurs’ semi-final win over Ajax, Kane revealed his hopes to be fit for the final and it might be worth keeping an eye on his fitness up until the big day.
