Who makes our Dream Team surprise XI of the season?

Including three Wolves players...

The last knockings of the season are upon us.

But dry your eyes, because we’re not quite done just yet, with Dream Team points still up for grabs in the upcoming Europa League final AND the Champions League final.

So don’t give up on those mini-league ambitions.

Anyway, here’s Wonderwall

With the Premier League season done and dusted though, we’ve decided to look back at some of the campaign’s surprise Dream Team stars.

Using the 4-3-3 formation, we’ve made a Dream Team XI of the players we weren’t expecting to score quite so many points this term, including THREE Wolves players…

He might’ve suffered relegation with his club Cardiff City, but Neil Etheridge (78 points) can hold his head up with pride after a season worthy of the Premier League.

His final game of the campaign was particularly impressive, as he made 10 saves and kept a clean sheet against Man United in Cardiff’s 2-0 win at Old Trafford to win the Star Man award.

Few of you will be surprised to see Wolves’ defenders Willy Boly (114) and Matt Doherty (189) in our back four. Doherty was especially impressive and became a Dream Team favourite as the season progressed.

Lucas Digne (168) will perhaps go down as one of the signings of the season and was unlucky not to make the Premier League’s Team of the Year, while Shane Duffy (129) was one of the few Brighton players to finish the campaign with their reputation intact.

Bournemouth will no doubt be fighting off the Premier League’s big teams this summer after Ryan Fraser’s (158) outstanding run-out.

The Scotland international notched 14 assists in the league – just one behind the season’s top playmaker Eden Hazard – and formed a dazzling double-act with Callum Wilson.

Nathan Redmond (123) benefited greatly from Southampton’s appointment of Ralph Hasenhuttl mid-season, while Luka Milivojevic (140) continued to be Crystal Palace’s Mr. Reliable from 12-yards out with 10 goals from the penalty spot.

ATTACK

The most impressive player in our team is Wolves’ Mexican forward Raul Jimenez (193), who rubbed shoulders with some of Dream Team’s best points-scorers with a tasty haul of 17 goals, including four in their brilliant FA Cup run.

Joining him in our surprising trio of attackers is Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic (115), who’ll no doubt he looking to stay in the Premier League for next season after the Cottagers relegation, and Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez (134), who benefited from a late-season flourish of goals.
