As we head to a new season we look at Sky Sports Fantasy Football Most Expensive XI. Opting for the most traditional 4-4-2, we’ve picked the most expensive players from each position according to Sky Sport Fantasy Football vaulations.
Unfortunately you cannot simply replicate this team as the buget is £75m and this team costs £92m. Anyway lets head on into it.
Holding up the back line we have the Chelsea trio, not a surprising really as Chelsea boasts the best defensive record last season. With their Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who by the way scored a screamer of a penalty in pre-season. Next is John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic. These two scored 9 goals between them with a 5-4 split in favour of Terry, they scored more points than any other defender in the league last season. Having said they the price tag for these three alot comes to a staggering £21.9m which would only leave you with £53.1m left taking 29.2% of your budget.
Next is Arsenals Laurent Koscielny, who managed to score 3 times last year but didn’t manage to keep up with the Chelsea duo on points, but hopefully with the introduction of Petr Cech, Arsenal having taking steps to strengthen and improve their back line.
To finish off the back four we have no other than Leighton Baines, who is a top rated left-back and is known for his set-pieces. The back four including the keeper is valued as £37m which is just under half of your budget.
Heading into midfield we start off with Premier League Player of the Year Eden Hazard, who was only a point off being Sky Sports Fantasy Football’s top points scorer last season, is unsurprisingly the highest-rated midfielder. Hazard is valued at £9m.
Next is David Silva who scored two goals less in netting 12 times for Man City and was one of just five players to score more that 200 points. Next is another Chelsea player, Cesc Fabregas only netted three times but helped his points tally with a Premier League record 19 assists, while Yaya Toure’s price tag as actually dropped slightly from £9m, with his 10 goals last season half the tally he managed in 2013/14.
adding up the defence and midfield this takes you up to £72.2m which is pretty much your budget gone.
Now onto the strikers starting with Sergio Aguero was not only the Premier League’s top scorer last season but also Sky Sports Fantasy Football’s, having totted up a massive 250 points thanks to 26 goals and eight assists. Now onto another Chelsea player Deigo Costa, plenty are expecting him to deliver again. He has been selected in nearly 40 per cent of all sides already, more than double that of the game’s second most expensive striker.
Chelsea’s lead striker has not only scored six less goals that Aguero but also fell seven short in the assist tally, while the arrival of Radamel Falcao means he is facing tougher competition for a starting berth.
