15 Players You Will Want In Your Fantasy Football Team

Serenading Louie Football Player


Robin Van Persie, Arsenal

Robin Van Persie was in a rich vein of form last season, scoring 18 goals, 7 assists in 25 games in the League.

2. Rafael Van de Vaart, Tottenham

He takes the penalties, shares set pieces, and is often used as a second striker. He is a must for any team.

3. Shay Given, Aston Villa

Best value pound for pound than any other keeper in the League, and with Alex McLeish's style of tightening up a defence, he is likely to keep quite a few clean sheets this season.

4. Kieran Gibbs, Arsenal

Another one to watch as he is more likely to get quite a few games this season, with Clichy gone and Wenger stating that he is looking at giving him a chance to shine this season.

5. Gary Cahill, Bolton

He has improved every season since joining Bolton
in 2008, and is linked with a move to a top four club. Picking up three England caps in 2010, and averaging a goal every 10,
games, you'll want him in your side.

6. Joe Hart, Manchester City

The England number one returned from his loan spell at Birmingham to number 1 keeper at City. Hart managed 18 clean sheets in 38 games last term.

7. Nemanja Vidic, Manchester United

The central defender scored more FPL points than Rooney last year, amassing 148 – largely due to being involved in 14 of the team's 15 clean sheets.  A
real attacking threat at every set piece, Vidic scored 5 league goals last 

8. Luis Suarez, Liverpool

His 13 appearances last season provided him with a taste of the Premier League, and showed what he is capable of. He scored 4 goals, and averaged more than 1 bonus point per game. 

9. Danny Graham, Swansea

Graham was Watford’s, and the Championship’s, top scorer last season and will benefit by the pace and ability from the Swansea wingers.

10. Martin Skrtel, Liverpool

The central defender contributed hugely towards the team's 14 clean sheets, and looks likely to be a regular
in the heart of Liverpool’s

11. Florent Malouda, Chelsea

Chelsea's best winger, he consistently is either in the top ten scorer / assister leader
board (and sometimes in both). 

12. Wayne Rooney, Manchester United

He doubled his assist tally from the previous
year, with 11 putting him as equal 3rd 'most creative' in the division. This is one player that is Fantasy Gold, and his pre-season form looks impressive.

13. Scott Sinclair, Swansea

Sinclair fired 27 goals in
50 games last season, including a play-off final hat trick. He should play regularly and score goals this term.  

14. Leighton Baines, Everton

Last season he played an impressive 38 games in the League, scoring 5 goals and assisting 11 times in total (highest assists for a defender in 10/11 season). 

15. Yohan Cabaye, Newcastle

Joining Newcastle this summer, he is a set piece taker, has a history as a penalty specialist, and with Nolan gone and Barton going, Cabaye could well be fantasy gold too.
