5 players you NEED in your Dream Team this October

October has arrived and the festive fixtures will soon be coming thick and fast on Dream Team.

With a new batch of transfers dropping THIS Friday, here are five players you should consider snapping up this month…


1 Hector Bellerin

Arsenal fans will rejoice at the sight of Bellerin back on the pitch but it’s also big news for Dream Team gaffers.

The Spaniard has become a DT favourite over the years because of his ability to chip in with goals and assists from right-back.

Bellerin registered an assist on his return for the Gunners and already has seven points to his name after just 15 minutes of football this season.

The Spaniard won’t come cheap at £3.1m but if he can rediscover the form he showed before his injury, he could make all the difference in your defence.

2 Riyad Mahrez

He’s flying without wings

Pep’s bonkers rotation policy has us tearing our hair out every weekend.

Not even Raheem Sterling can be guaranteed of a start anymore but one man who looks untouchable right now is Mahrez.

The £4.2m winger was the difference in Man City’s late win over Everton and has an outrageous 57 points already.

Mahrez will fancy his chances of picking up big points during a favourable run of fixtures that includes; Wolves, Palace, Villa and back-to-back clashes with Southampton.

3 Callum Hudson-Odoi

The long-awaited return to action for Hudson-Odoi is finally over and he’s ready to cause havoc on Dream Team.

The Chelsea man has a modest price tag of £2.6m and already has ten points to his name after one goal and one assist in two games this season.

If you’re on the hunt for a cost-effective winger from a top six side then look no further than Hudson-Odoi this October.


4 Andriy Yarmolenko

He’s like a new signing for West Ham

Sebastien Haller might be stealing the headlines but it’s Yarmolenko who has caught our eye in recent weeks.

The towering winger has been a revelation and is making up for lost time following his lengthy injury layoff last season.

Yarmolenko is joint with Haller on three goals and has found the net in his last two games, including one in the shock win over Man United.

At £2.6m he represents great value and with 37 points on the board he’s one of the early pace setters on Dream Team.

5 Jamie Vardy

Just like a fine wine

Goals and Jamie Vardy, name a more iconic duo. I’ll wait.

After a relatively slow start to the season, the WKD enthusiast is looking back to his best under Brendan Rodgers.

Vardy has found the net five times this season, including a double in the 5-0 rout over Newcastle.

The Foxes forward will set you back a hefty £4.5m but he’s more than delivering on that investment with 40 points already.
