But which players have been picked the most ahead of the season opener at the Emirates?. Here are the top 20 most selected fantasy football players so far…. 1 Romelu Lukaku (£60m) – 58.
Lukaku will be Manchester Uniteds main man this season. The Manchester United new boy is quite considerably the most picked player on Dream Team so far, with well over half of managers plumping for the £75m man.
He started well, too, scoring on his competitive debut for the Red Devils when they faced Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. And we expect many, many more. 2 Harry Kane (£80m) – 46.
Kane is Dream Teams most expensive player this season. Dream Team managers evidently havent been deterred by Kanes value this season – hes the most expensive player – and his 29 goals in the Premier League last season prove why.
3 Dele Alli (£60m) – 30.
Alli is ready to lead Spurs to their first Premier League title this season. No midfielder scored more league goals in Europes top five leagues last season – so Allis popularity is a given. 4 Paul Pogba (£60m) – 30.
A lot more is expected from Pogba this season.
Pogba is a Star Man machine and a WhoScored (our ratings providers) algorithm favourite and will likely settle even more in his second season back in England, especially now he has his good mate Lukaku to link-up with.
5 Alexandre Lacazette (£50m) – 28%.
How will Lacazette get on in his first season in England?. Arguably the biggest new face on the game, Lacazettes prolific scoring rate in France has convinced nearly a third of managers that hes the man for their attack.
How did Sanchez perform in fantasy football last season? Second highest rated player (7.
76) in the Premier League last season, behind only Eden Hazard Registered 30 goals and 13 assists in all competitions Highest points scorer on Dream Team with 340 points Want him in your fantasy football team this season? Sign up now.
6 David De Gea (£40m) – 25%.
Is De Gea the best goalkeeper in the Premier League?. De Geas United future looks more concrete this summer with Real Madrids interest cooling, and hes always in with a shout to win the Golden Glove come the end of the season.
7 Mohamed Salah (£40m) – 24.
Salah will be hoping to perform better for Liverpool than he did for Chelsea three years ago. More managers have picked Liverpools new boy than anyone else in the last two weeks, and with good reason.
What will Liverpool new boy Salah bring to Dream Team? 15 goals and 11 assists in Serie A for Roma last season Had a higher rating (7. 48) than Paulo Dybala (7.
46) in Italy last season Quick, nippy winger with a point to prove after failed spell at Chelsea Get him in your Dream Team now.
The pacey winger is by-far the finest midfield option in his price range, while his impressive link-up play with Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino has fired a warning shot to the Reds Premier League rivals.
His four goals in pre-season werent half-bad, either. 8 Kevin De Bruyne (£60m) – 24.
Is De Bruyne in your Dream Team this season?. Another player whose percentage has shot up over the last few weeks is De Bruyne.
One of the most eye-catching players in the Premier League, nobody registered more assists in the top flight than De Bruyne last season. Well worth a place in your team. 9 Kyle Walker (£4.
Was Walker worth £50million?. The most expensive English player of all time is also the most popular pick in defence on this seasons Dream Team.
And with good reason; hes guaranteed to start for Manchester City this season, with Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna both gone. Hes also settled in well at his new club, impressing during Citys pre-season tour. 10 Sergio Aguero (£70m) – 21.
Will Aguero be satisfied with a spot on the bench this season?. Aguero has crept into our top 10 most picked players this season, despite Gabriel Jesus tipped to be Citys first-team starter for the upcoming campaign.
But the goal machine remains fantasy football darling, with only Alexis Sanchez (348 points) scoring more points on Dream Team than the Argentinian last season. 11 Gabriel Jesus (£5m) – 20.
Were looking forward to seeing what Jesus can do over an entire season. Speak of the devil.
Jesus looks likely to keep Aguero out of Citys starting line up this season (see above) after notching an impressive seven goals and four assists from just eight starts last season. Hes also one of the games biggest bargains.
12 Eric Bailly (£4.
Bailly had a good first season for Man United. Bailly took to the Premier League like a duck to water last season and we reckon hell get even better under Mourinho this term. 13 Jordan Pickford (£30m) – 17.
Pickford joined Everton from Sunderland over the summer. Everton’s new £30m signing is also the second-most picked keeper on Dream Team so far.
One of the few positives from Sunderlands dreadful camopaign last season, we expect big things from this young shot-stopper. 14 Sadio Mane (£60m) – 16.
Liverpools attacking force looks strong this season. Mane is back, folks. If the winger can stay fit this season, he can easily be Liverpool’s key figure as they compete on multiple fronts, including the Champions League. 15 Cesar Azpilicueta (£50m) – 15.
The man they call Dave at Chelsea is a firm favourite of Antonio Conte and no defender scored more fantasy football points than him last season.
Reliable, consistent and, quite frankly, brilliant, were hardly surprised so many of you opting for the Spaniard in your team. 16 Wayne Rooney (£30m) – 15.
Rooney is back at Everton. Rooney’s 13-year spell at Man United ended this summer with a return to his boyhood club Everton.
What could Morata bring to fantasy football? 15 goals and four assists from just 14 La Liga starts last season 20 goals in all competitions WhoScored rating of 7.
17 – better than Sergio Ramos and and Karim Benzema Fancy him to shine this season? Sign up to get him in your Dream Team now.
And with the Toffees allowing Lukaku to head in the other direction, Rooney could get some serious game time this season. While his legs are gone a bit, he still knows how where the net is. 17 Michael Keane (£40m) – 13.
Keane impressed for Burnley last season. Another Everton new boy on our list; Keane really caught our eye last season by leading Burnley to survival.
121 points on last seasons game and an England debut to boot, Keano earned himself a £25 million move to Goodison over the summer and could definitely be one to watch this season. 18 Philippe Coutinho (£60m) – 13.
Liverpool fans are concerned they may lose Coutinho to Barcelona. Liverpools main man has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, but that hasnt stopped him creeping into our top 20 ahead of the new season.
If he stays, hes likely to be the Reds main man in the classic No 10 role, where hes played brilliantly throughout pre-season. 19 Christian Eriksen (£6.
Eriksen was one of Dream Teams best points scorers last season.
Were genuinely surprised Spurs midfield dynamo isnt further up this list, considering he was Dream Teams fifth highest points scorer last season (251 points) and one of the games most consistent Star Man award winners.
Will the Manchester United midfielder improve on last seasons points tally?. Oh, Mkhi youre so fine.
The Armenian may have started his Old Trafford career very slowly, but by the end of last season he was Uniteds main attacking outlet. Were expecting more from him this season.
How does fantasy football work?. The setup for Dream Team is pretty simple really – as a manger you get a budget of £50m to spend on your team of 11 players.
Game Weeks will run from Friday to Thursday this season and you’ll be allowed to transfer out players who have already played in that Game Week.
How did Azpilicueta perform on fantasy football this season? 1 goal and 4 assists in all competitions WhoScored rating of 7.
21 – higher than David Luiz and Pedro Highest scoring defender on Dream Team (118 points) Fancy Dave to shine? Sign up to get him in your team.

Which fantasy football team names are the most popular?. Team names have become almost as important as picking winning sides in recent years, with the punnier the better the general perspective.
