The footballing season is amongst us yet again! After what has proved to be a great summer of Sport in the World Cup & le Tour De France, the Premier League season is back! This weekend will see the teams battling it out, all hoping for a great start to the new 14/15 campaigns. The newly promoted teams (Leicester, Burnley & QPR) will all be eager to prove that they are ready to step up to the challenge of arguably the best league in the world. We have already seen some exiting additions to the premier league this transfer window; Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa, Ander Herrera & Cesc Fabregas also makes a return. But will any of these players make your dream team?

Its’ time to construct your fantasy football dream teams! Below are a couple of tips to consider when choosing your perfect 11.


Goalkeepers are vital to any success in Fantasy Football, pick the right man for the job and they have the potential to earn you lots of points.

Tip: Pick a goalkeeper from a team with a solid defence in front of him, and therefore more likely to keep a clean sheet.


Defenders are more important than you may think in fantasy football. Many people like to save money here as defenders aren’t seen as the players to earn the most points, however if you choose wisely you can bag a few defenders who like to get forward and have a good goal/assist record.


When choosing midfielders, bare in mind the players who take set pieces as they will pick up lots of extra points through assists/goals.


Don’t get seduced by one season wonders. Pick a player who has experience in the Premier League and that have a good midfield behind them for their clubs.
