Hello everyone! Welcome to the Fantasy Premier League 2017/2018 season. The highly anticipated season is here and there have been some major signings which everyone would be on the lookout this season!
Today’s article will be based on must-have premier league players for fantasy football this season and bargains.
Kieran Trippier TOT (£5.5m): After Walker’s move to City and without any strong speculation about a ‘big signing’, we expect Trippier to be in Poch’s starting eleven this season, having impressed last season. The 26-year-old had 5 assists in 12 premier league games (5 starts)  in 2016/17 season, more than any defender per 90 minute metric. With Spurs having a great tendency of clean sheets, playing as a fullback, you’d expect Kieran Trippier to bring those points!
Alexis Sanchez ARS (£12m): The Chilean may have been busy with all the headlines concerning his future, but that shouldn’t underestimate his prowess, should he remain at the Emirates this season. Sanchez was a standout performer last season and has been largely consistent. He certainly guarantees you goals and assists. 30 goals and 17 assists in all competitions last season is incredible.
Harry Kane TOT (£12m): proven born-scorer looks set to be on another spectacular season. The English captain has won the Golden boot in the last two seasons, notably scoring 29 goals in 30 matches after being ruled out for three months. Priced at £12.5m, although a little bit inflated regarding £100m budget, but without a second thought, how would you not have Harry Kane, though?
Romelu Lukaku  MNU (£11.5m): The Belgian striker looks set for a classic season after a record move to Manchester United. Romelu has been prolific for Everton in recent seasons, and with Paul Pogba set to deliver those passes, couple with the fact that he’s in a more composed team, we should expect Lukaku to deliver more than he has in recent seasons.
Mesut Ozil ARS (£9.5m): German world-class midfielder has had a mixed season in England, albeit he was phenomenal two seasons ago. Arsenal confirmed signing of Lacazette, which I expect to prove dynamic  in their pursuit of top four finish after missing out last season. Ozil should be expected to deliver those assists as he did two seasons ago, with a more advanced and prolific striker in Lacazette. You should have Mesut Ozil, if you can’t have both Harry Kane and Alexis Sanchez.
Thibaut Courtois CHE (£5.5m): He has proven to be consistent since his debut season in the EPL and was outstanding last season to his team’s league triumph. Courtois is expected to have even a better defence in front of him than last season, due to some vital acquisitions by manager Antonio Conte. He’s guaranteed to give you clean sheets and save points!
Specifically making 68 saves and 16 clean sheets in the 2016/17 season.
Christian Eriksen TOT (£5.5m): No reason whatsoever – should he stay at Spurs – would the Dane not bring you those FPL points! Spurs had a brilliant 2016/17 season with Chelsea only the better side which saw them finish runner-up. The 25-year-old finished with 8 goals and 15 assists last term.
Davy Klaassen EVE (£7.5m): looks most likely to be the key midfield operator for Everton this season as Ronald Koeman continues to alchemize the club.
Although, Everton may have to start the season with some mouth-watering matches in their first five games when they play Stoke (H), Manchester City (A), Chelsea (A), Tottenham (H) and Manchester United (A), with only Stoke scoring below 4 in the fantasy game difficulty.
Ross Barkley is 100% certain to leave Goodison Park, with the former Ajax man Klaassen  likely to get uninterrupted game-time in 2017/18.
It’s also thoughtful that judging by his product in the Eredivise last season, he could prove to be an FPL czar this season.
Klaassen has been hitting double figures in recent seasons in the Eredivisie.
Mohamed Salah LIV (£9.0m): The Egyptian winger is back in the premier league, but this time under the Klopp.
Salah had a quiet season with Chelsea before leaving for the Serie A, but he’s been one of the most wanted players ever since.
He bagged 17 goals and 12 assists for Roma last season, definitely one of the reasons he was acquired for £38m. He’s expected to feature this season for the Reds, having played a key role in their pre-season tour in Hong Kong and Germany.
Javier Hernandez WHM (£7.0m): one of the best transfers so far in the EPL, it would be risky not to have the man who has the fifth-best minutes-per-goal (mpg) ratio in the whole of Premier League history for quite a handsome fee of £7.0m.
With Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho facing fitness problems, the Mexican will most likely be Hammers’ starting striker. Prior to his move to London, he had a beautiful spell in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen (scoring 39 goals in 76 appearances). He’s the best second striker option this season, in my opinion.
Here’s also a list of top 10 Bargain players if you don’t have enough budget:
1. Dwight Gayle NEW (£6.5m).
2. Tammy Abraham SWA (£5.5m).
3. Lewis Dunk BHA (£4.5m).
4. Cedric Soares SOU (£5.0m)
5. Matt Phillips WBA (£6.0m)
6. Jay Rodriguez WBA (£6.0m)
7. Robert Elliot NEW (£4.0m)
8. Nathan Ake BOU (£5.0m)
9. Anthony Knockaert BHA (£6.0m)
10. Joe Hart WHM (£4.5m)
Good luck in selecting your team before game week 1 deadline on 11th of  August 18:45.
