Hold what have have dear

Alisson couldn’t have had a better debut season in English football.

The Brazilian won the Champions League and was the highest scoring goalkeeper on last season’s game with 209 points.

The Golden Glove winner has already been selected by 29.8% of Dream Team gaffers and we can’t wait to see if he can repeat his heroics from last season.

At £4.5m, he might appear expensive, but the Liverpool man was 14th top scorer last season – ahead of Paul Pogba and Raul Jimenez.

If you are looking for a cheaper option between the sticks, Tom Heaton might be the man for you.

The English goalkeeper already has 24 Premier League clean sheets, so at just £2m he could prove an absolute steal.

Are you ready to join the 0.8% of managers who have the former Burnley man in their sides?

Defenders

Can AWB carry his form to United?Aaron Wan-Bissaka had a season to remember with Crystal Palace last season, scoring 131 points.

Following his £50m move to Old Trafford we can’t wait to see if the 21-year-old is ready for the pressure of joining Man United.
28.7% of managers believe he is ready and have the £3.5m man in their teams already.

Liverpool’s non-existant transfer window means Joe Gomez (£3.5m) is set to partner Virgil van Dijk (£6m) at the back for the Reds.

The Dutchman has been selected by 50% of bosses, while Gomez has been picked by just 5.5%.

Free from injury, it will be interesting to see if the young Englishman can thrive playing next to VVD.

Two of the new boys in London have drawn a lot of attention on Dream team.
Both Christian Pulisic (3m) and Nicolas Pepe (£3.5m) are risky but popular options.

23% of managers have gone with Pepe, while 14% have gone with Chelsea’s new American winger.

Are the pair ready for the Premier League? We hope so, and so a lot of managers!

Two of last season’s Dream Team gods, Bernardo Silva (£4.5m) and Sadio Mane (£6m), will be hoping they can replicate last season’s point-scoring heroics.

Mane finished with 265 points while Silva ended up with 223. It would take some doing to match or improve on last season for the pair.

Three young English midfielders we are keeping an eye on are; Ross Barkley (£2m), Jack Grealish (£2.5m) and James Maddison (£3m).

Maddison has been selected by 8.2%, Grealish 5.5% and Barkley £4.4. Food for thought…

Wolves will have added European games this season

We have got one eye on Harry Kane for the season ahead… especially in August.
England’s captain has only scored one Premier League goal in the eighth month of the year and will be looking to improve on that unusual record.

43.7% are backing the striker to get off to a good start and, as a slightly cheaper option to Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero, you might want to as well.

Both Raul Jimenez (£3.5) and Callum Wilson (£3.5) were surprise packages last season and we are intrigued to see if they can repeat their breakthrough seasons.

Wilson scored 14 in the Premier League, while Jimenez bagged 13.

Wolves’ European games mean 11.3% have selected the Mexican, while only 5.5% have gone with Wilson.
