5 Dream Team players to consider choosing for your last transfer this month

September’s nearly up and we’re heading towards the meaty centre of the Premier League and fantasy football season.

But we’re willing to bet there’s a healthy chunk of you with a transfer or two remaining this month, right?

So if you’re looking to make some changes before October, then here’s who to pick…


1 Ricardo Pereira (£3.2m)


With Spurs, Man United and Arsenal all suffering at the moment, Leicester surely have one eye on a place in the top four this season.

What’s more, their players have been Dream Team staples this term, with James Maddison a firm favourite, while Jamie Vardy – as always – is a healthy source of goals and points.

But we’ve got our mind firmly set on their marauding full-back Pereira.

The Portuguese defender netted the equaliser in the Foxes brilliant win over Spurs at the weekend, after his manager Brendan Rodgers reportedly told him to start getting further forward as much as possible.

Good call, Brendan.

2 Marcos Alonso (£2.8m)


From one forward-thinking full-back, to another.

Alonso has been a fantasy football mainstay in recent years, but his stock has plummeted over the last year or so – with only 3% of Dream Team managers selecting him right now.

But with Emerson Palmeiri’s injury, he’s Chelsea’s next best left-back and will likely get a run of games, while he still remains a solid threat from set pieces and has already registered one assist from his three appearances.

3 Andriy Yarmolenko (£2.3m)


Everyone’s favourite West Ham-based Ukrainian is back and better than ever.

Thanks to injury, Yarmolenko made just 10 appearances for the Hmamers last season, scoring two goals.

But he’s already netted the same return in just five, including the opener in the 2-0 win over Man United last weekend.

With momentum on his side and quick return to form, this might be a great time to snap him up.

4 Bernardo Silva (£4.5m)


Pep Guardiola has been a constant spanner in the works for fantasy football managers over the years, with his habit of constantly rotating his squad.

Even the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling have found themselves benched in recent weeks, much to our frustration.

But even so, we think Pep’s go-to guy Bernardo deserves some consideration after his hat-trick against Watford and his reasonably cheap price.

5 Michy Batshuayi (£2m)


Fancy a gamble?

Chelsea’s season so far has been all about the goal-scoring exploits of Tammy Abraham, but after netting twice during the week in the 7-1 win over Grimsby – maybe Batshuayi can provide the in-form youngster with some competition?

Fixtures are coming thick and fast for the Blues, so Michy will certainly see some game time and has been a proven goalscorer over the years, even if he hasn’t been completely fancied by the likes of Antonio Conte or Maurzio Sarri.
