The best Fantasy Premier League team of the season so far

With 10 games gone and over a quarter of the way into the season, maybe it is time to take a look at who is setting the Premier League alight week in week out. This has arguably been the most exciting and open start to a Premier League season since its inception back in 1992. There have been so many talking points, controversial decisions, shock results, managerial casualties, and goal of the season contenders already. I thought it might be time to take a look at the top performers to date.




David De Gea (Manchester United)

Despite Manchester United’s below par start to the season De Gea has been superb and has displayed all the attributes of a top class goalkeeper this season. The Spaniard seems more settled at Old Trafford now and has banished the mistakes that plagued his debut season last year. He has been marshalling the back four extremely well and is more commanding and convincing when crosses come into the box and is an excellent shot-stopper.




Leighton Baines (Everton)

Baines is now a regular within the England setup and is continuing where he left off last season with great defensive performances and has been a key to Everton’s impressive start to the season. He is also critical to the Toffees attack with his dangerous left-foot crosses and dead ball expertise.




Bacary Sagna (Arsenal)

Sagna has been developing and improving steadily over the last few years and he has been one of the unsung heroes for the Gunners title push this season. Sagna has been busy putting in tackles and then bombing forward to support the wealth of attackers the Gunners possess.




Dejan Lovren (Southampton)

Lovren has come from nowhere to quickly establish himself as one of the top performing defenders in the Premier League. He has been a tower at the back and his rock solid displays have been the catalyst for the Saints’ impressive defensive record this season.



Martin Skrtel (Liverpool)

The Slovakian has been colossal at the back for the Reds and is capable of popping up with the odd goal from a set-piece. It is in no thanks to Skrtel that Liverpool are sitting in the top four with title aspirations this season.




Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

What more can be said about the Welsh wizard? Ramsey has already quadrupled his goal-scoring record for the Gunners and has been the best midfielder in the Premier League this season. He has proven he can perform on the big stage with a thunderbolt against Liverpool and then heading home the winner against Dortmund in the Champions League.




Mesut Ӧzil (Arsenal)

The German ace has been a revelation since his summer move from Real Madrid and has excited and thrilled football fans all around the globe, with his his dazzling displays and neat precise passing giving the Gunners the ability to unlock even the tightest of defences. If Arsenal do go on to win their first Premier League title since 2004 it will be in no small part thanks to Ӧzil.




Adam Lallana (Southampton)

Lallana has been putting in impressive performances every week and has deservedly earn a call-up to the England squad. Lallana has all the characteristics of a top midfielder, always working hard and giving 100% for the Saints.




Romelu Lukaku (Everton)

Jose Mourinho must have some regret about the decision to allow Lukaku to leave Stamford Bridge this season. Lukaku has immediately slotted into the Martinez regime, proving to be one of the top strikers in the league and being a real handful for any defence he has been up against.




Luis Suarez (Liverpool)

The Uruguayan hotshot has been unstoppable since his return from his lengthy ban and is arguably one of the top three strikers in the world. Suarez is capable of turning a game in an instant and has established a great understanding with fellow striker Daniel Sturridge.




Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)

The former Montpellier striker has been on top form this season for the Gunners and looks every bit the player that was top scorer in Ligue 1 in 2012. Giroud looks at home at the Emirates and seems to have more confidence and self-belief this season. He has been scoring goals for fun and has been very unselfish, chipping in with his fair share of assists.
