5 long-term injury returnees who you can now pick again on Dream Team

100 days is a long time in the football, right?

Well, that’s how long we would have been deprived of Premier League action, before all the fun kicks off again next week.

A host of players who had previously been ruled out through injury for the regular season’s conclusion, are now back and raring to go again ahead of the restart.

While they’re back in contention for their clubs, they’re also available for a spot in your Dream Team…

1 Marcus Rashford (£4.8m) –  186 points

It’s easy to forget just how good Rashford was playing before he got injured in January.

The Man United forward couldn’t stop scoring at one stage and had notched 14 goals in the league, before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that the back injury he sustained could be a season spoiler.

The break has given Rashford time to recover and all of a sudden Man United have a frightening front two on their hands, with Rashford expected to link up with Anthony Martial once again.

Should your budget allow it, you’d be wise to use one of your three June transfers on the returning Man United star.

2 Son Heung-min (£5.1m) – 168 points

Injuries and military service – it’s safe to say that Son has been through his fair share of drama during football’s time off.

The Spurs striker looked as though he’d played his final game of the season after undergoing surgery on an arm fracture, but the disruption to the season has given Son the opportunity to get fit once again.

While Son has gone under the radar for much of the Dream Team season, his impressive points return of 168 will tell you that he’s not one you should be sleeping on for much longer.

Will you snap up the Spurs forward for your Dream Team?

3 Harry Kane (£7.5m) – 162 points

Rewind three months and Kane was not only in a race against time to make the end of the season for Spurs, but also to feature for England at the Euros.

While we won’t want to remind you that the latter tournament is no longer happening, Spurs fans can at least sleep easy in the knowledge that Kane’s return to action is just around the corner.

Kane’s points total of 162 actually puts him behind a host of other attacking options on Dream Team, including his teammate Son, but a fully fit Kane is an enticing prospect for any gaffers out there with cash in their pocket on the lookout for a striker.

Kane will hope to be the difference for Spurs in some big games from now until the end of the season, not least the small matter of a north London derby in July.

4 Tammy Abraham (£3.8m) – 153 points

Abraham was by far the hottest property on Dream Team at the start of the season.

The Chelsea youngster was thrown in at the deep end by Frank Lampard from the off, but duly repaid his manager’s faith by netting 13 Premier League goals so far this season.

A string of injuries rendered Abraham useless around March, but now back fully fit, he’ll want to prove his worth on the pitch before Timo Werner’s arrival this summer.

5 Paul Pogba (£4m) – 10 points

A measly ten points for the season so far makes for pretty grim reading for fans of Pogba.

Love him or loathe him, there’s no denying that he’s got heaps talent and now that he’s injury free, the Frenchman could make a real impact in your Dream Team.

Pogba has featured just eight times for Man United this season, but his tally of 199 points last season suggests that when fit, he’s a bit of a Dream Team favourite.

You’ll struggle to find a better top-six midfielder who’s now available for just £4m.
