Alisson currently leads the way with 30.6% of gaffers backing the Liverpool man to repeat his heroics from last season.

The Brazilian won the Premier League Golden Glove after picking up 21 clean sheets, and it’s no surprise to see the £4.5m man as the most popular goalkeeper.

His countryman Ederson is the second most selected shot stopper and features in 19% of teams – the Man City cat will set you back the same £4.5m as Alisson.

Across Manchester, David de Gea remains a Dream Team stalwart with 15.3% of managers picking him so far.

Man United have bolstered their defence with the additions of Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the Spaniard should benefit from some better protection than he had last season.

Defenders

The human wall

It’s no surprise to see Virgil van Dijk as the most popular defender on Dream Team by some distance.

A whopping 51% of gaffers have picked last season’s PFA Player of the Year with the hope of more clean sheets and goals this campaign.

Andy Robertson continues Liverpool’s dominance over the most picked defenders and he features in 37.8% of teams.

The wing-back offers you the threat of goals and assists to go with Liverpool’s unrivalled ability to keep clean sheets, especially at Anfield.

Man United new boy Maguire makes up the rest of the top three with a hefty 31.3% of you taking a punt on ‘Slabhead.’

Midfielders

The first of many trophies?

Last season’s second-highest points-scorer Raheem Sterling is not only the most selected midfielder on Dream Team, but also the most selected player in general.

56.2% of you have got your hands on the Man City winger who stormed to an outrageous 312 points last season.

Sadio Mane is someway behind Sterling and features in just 36% teams so far – the Senegal international’s involvement at AFCON perhaps putting gaffers off picking him from the start of the season.

Bernardo Silva comes next behind Mane with 30.8% of you trusting Pep Guardiola’s Portuguese wizard to pull the strings and provide the points in your midfield.

Mo Salah is the winner of a monumental three-way struggle to be the most picked striker on Dream Team.

Last season’s Golden Boot winner has been selected by 47.4% of gaffers, toppling Dream Team stalwart Sergio Aguero who will lead the line for 45.2% of teams.

Spurs man Harry Kane takes the bronze medal by featuring in 44% of teams, despite being £.5m cheaper than both of his attacking rivals at £7m.

Perhaps it’s the Spurs man’s track record of struggling for goals in August that has put you off picking him?

As we mentioned, we’ve launched a Draft game this season and to say we’re excited would be an understatement.

Draft pits you in a league against other managers as you try to build a 15-man squad to takes you to the top.

But the key difference is if you own a player, nobody else in your league can have them.

That’s right, if you have Salah in your team, then that means Steve from HR doesn’t.

Game weeks work on a head-to-head basis which means leagues must consist of an even number to work.
