Well, that’s Game Week 1 of the new season ALMOST done and dusted.
Liverpool got things underway with an easy win over Norwich on Friday – although nearly 30% of Dream Team managers now have to decide who to pick in goal following Alisson’s injury – while champions Man City run-out 5-0 winners over West Ham, partly thanks to a Raheem Sterling hat-trick.
Of course, by now you should have you fantasy football team picked and scoring points already… but we reckon there’s some of you out there that still doesn’t have a team, right?
But don’t panic, because there’s still hope for you.
You see, if you don’t have a Dream Team yet but you want to join in on the fun, then you can still pick a team, join your mate’s mini-league, and even score maximum points before Game Week 1 is through.
Although it does mean picking a team made up entirely of Premier League players that are in-action tomorrow, on Sunday.

There’s three juicy games on tomorrow; Wolves start their season at Leicester, Steve Bruce’s Newcastle take on Arsenal, and then there’s the small matter of Man United hosting Chelsea.
Here’s our best XI:
I’ve tried to be diplomatic, and pick at least one player from each of the six teams left.
There’s question marks over whether David Luiz will actually start for Arsenal tomorrow so I’m trying my luck and throwing him in, but I think Bernd Leno, Conor Coady and Luke Shaw are solid choices – not just for tomorrow, but for the season ahead too.
Nobody quite knows how well Christian Pulisic and Nicolas Pepe will get on in the Premier League, but sometimes playing Dream Team is all about gambling on the unknown – they could really hit the ground running.
Paul Pogba’s always been a solid player for Dream Team, while I’m expecting big things from the highly-rated Miguel Almiron this season.
Raul Jimenez and Jamie Vardy are both capable of scoring at least 25 goals between them, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is my personal favourite for the Golden Boot (again).
