Our Pick (4-3-3)

Goalkeeper David de Gea Manchester United £7.8m
Defender Chris Smalling Manchester United £8.2m
Defender Nacho Monreal Arsenal £9.6m
Defender Wes Morgan Leicester City £6.9m
Defender Neil Taylor Swansea £6.9m
Midfielder Dusan Tadic Southampton £6.6m
Midfielder Juan Mata Manchester United £7.6m
Midfielder Riyad Mahrez Leicester City £14.4m
Forward Marko Arnautovic Stoke City £7.5m
Forward Jamie Vardy Leicester City £10.6m
Forward Olivier Giroud Arsenal £10.8m
Total Price – £98,700,000


Manchester United appear to be slowly improving and there’s no doubt that they are capable of keeping a clean sheet against a very average Swansea side so we have David de Gea in goal with Chris Smalling in defence. United’s lack of goalscoring capability means we’ve also taken a punt on Swansea defender Neil Taylor. Arsenal’s high-scoring Nacho Monreal and Leicester’s solid Wes Morgan are chosen with respective matches against Newcastle and Bournemouth likely to yield some points.


In our three man midfield we’ve gone for Leicester’s superstar Riyad Mahrez plus United’s Juan Mata (who surely will grab a hatful of points before long). Southampton are away at Norwich City so the inclusion of Dusan Tadic is a bit of a risk but he’s cheap and has potential.


Leicester’s Jamie Vardy and Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud are obvious choices but we’ve also gone for Stoke City’s Marko Arnautovic as a cheap but in-form player who should earn something away at struggling West Brom.
