We’re taking a well-earned rest from fantasy football, with the international break taking centre-stage once more.
So this momentary pause from the Premier League and all the Dream Team goodness that goes along with it is the perfect opportunity to evaluate which players have stood out so far.
Here’s our best XI of the season, based on points scored after Game Week 8.
This lot would set you back a cool £56.3m on the game, which is just over your allocated budget.
Predictably, it’s jam-packed with the usual suspects from table-toppers Liverpool and Man City – including Mo Salah and Sergio Aguero – but there’s also the likes of Calum Chambers and high-scoring Tammy Abraham in there, too.
It’s not exactly been a vintage season so far for goalkeeping, with Alisson’s opening day injury robbing us of perhaps the best keeper on fantasy football.
Lloris’ horror-injury at the weekend will also see another big name shot-stopper spend a considerable amount of time on the sidelines.
So almost by default, Man City’s Ederson is some way out in front as the best No.1 at the moment.
Wolves’ Willy Boly has been one of the surprise stars of the season so far, with his dramatic late winner against Besiktas in the Europa League perhaps his crowning achievement.
It’s business as usual for Trent Alexander-Arnold, who’s surely one of the finest young full-backs around right now, while Calum Chambers’ has impressed for Arsenal and was faultless in their win over Bournemouth at the weekend.

It’s a sea of blue in our midfield, with Man City men Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez taking up three slots, alongside Liverpool’s Sadio Mane.
Sterling is currently the best points scorer on Dream Team, while KDB leads the way in assists with eight so far.
Mane’s five goals makes him Liverpool’s top goalscorer in the Premier League.
Teemu Pukki was the surprise name in our best XI back in September, but a barren run since Norwich’s win over Man City has seen him drop out of the running in place of Tammy Abraham.
Eight goals in the Prem for the Chelsea youngster puts him joint-top alongside Aguero, while Salah – who’s been picked by over 50% of Dream Team managers this season – continues to be one of the best players you can choose.
