Premier League Fantasy Football tips: 10 best new signings to pick ahead of Gameweek One on Dream Team

Managers across the globe will be frantically logging on to make last minute changes to ensure they get bragging rights over their mates.

While everyone will want to ensure they get some of the best-performing stars from last year into their team, there is an influx of new players available.

Not only do Aston Villa, Norwich City and Sheffield United possess a wealth of talent, but there have also been a host of new signings made across the division.

There are also players from last year who are expected to kick on after exceptional previous campaigns, even surpassing the score they racked up last time out.

It’s easy picking out the men likely to get you the most points as they’re usually the stars who are the most expensive.

But you may also need the odd cheap player in your ranks so you can keep to the £50m budget and, depending on your game plan, you might need a few.

So who should you be looking to sign before the start of the season? Below, talkSPORT.com has identified 10 stars you should definitely consider putting into your team before the transfer deadline.

Richarlison (Everton)

Richarlison enjoyed a terrific debut season at Goodison Park

Everton have a very welcoming set of fixtures back into Premier League action, meaning Richarlison should definitely be in your team. No other side has managed to avoid all of last season’s big six in their opening six games.

In fact, it is not until Game week 7 when the Toffees face champions Manchester City that we will see Marco Silva’s side really tested.

At just £8.0m, the Brazil international is certainly worth a punt, considering he produced three goals in his first two matches of 2018/19, including a 14-point haul away against Wolverhampton Wanderers in Gameweek 1.

Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

Sterling has already scored in one final this season

One of the hardest decisions in the game is deciding where to spend your money. When you go big, you want it to be worth it.

Spending your transfer budget on three players will leave your bench too sparse, so pick Sterling and save yourself the trouble.

The England international racked up 234 points last season and has been deployed as a central striker by Pep Guardiola throughout pre-season – meaning the £12.0m is a sound investment.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)

The England international is a creative influence for the Reds

Trent Alexander-Arnold enjoyed a remarkable season in 2018/19, culminating in a Champions League winner’s medal. He want’s bad in the Premier League either, scoring once and making 13 assists.

That helped him to 6.4 points per match (ppm), the third-highest average among regular starters in FPL, as well as his 16 clean sheets.

The £7.0m man also had 20 shots at Anfield last season, surpassed only by Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Diogo Jota (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Jota was one of the surprise stars of the season last time out

After a slow start to last season, Jota switched from a left-wing role and began to reap the benefits from a central position.

Alongside Raul Jimenez, the 22-year-old from Portugal scored nine goals and supplying seven assists in 20 subsequent appearances.

At £6.5m, he is cheaper than his club teammate, but equally as vital to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)

Villa will be relying on their talisman this season

The Villa captain was vital for Dean Smith, helping the former European champions achieve promotion via the play-offs and even more will be expected of the midfielder.

Despite missing many games through injury, Grealish still managed six goals and seven assists last season.

At £6.0m and with a relatively easy schedule for Villa for their Premier League return, the 23-year-old is definitely worth considering for your team.

Alisson (Liverpool)

Alisson was superb for the Reds last season

After a record-breaking move to Anfield, Alisson outlined his importance to the Reds by keeping 21 clean sheets and earning the Premier League Golden Glove.

Investing in a solid goalkeeper is crucial for success and, although Alisson is still costly at £6.0m, he justified his price with 176 points last season, finishing as the top-scoring custodian in FPL.

After finishing so close to Manchester City last season, the Brazil international will be as hungry as his teammates to ensure the trophy is finally adorned with the red ribbons of Liverpool come May.

James Maddison (Leicester City)

No player created more chances than the Leicester City star last season

When it comes to set-piece specialists in the Premier League, few would argue Maddison’s position as no.1. At Leicester, he takes all the corners, is second to Jamie Vardy for penalty duty and also scored three direct free-kicks.

Maddison created 100 chances in his debut season in the Premier League and he was rather unfortunate to get just seven assists.

At £7.0m, expect to see the England Under-21 international carry on where he left off and continue to be a driving force for the Foxes alongside Youri Tielemans.

Lucas Moura (Tottenham Hotspur)

Moura is even more important for Spurs after Dele Alli‘s injury

Dele Alli is unlikely to be fit for the start of the season, meaning Lucas Moura will be given a starting berth after a terrific pre-season campaign.

Although classed as a midfielder in the game, Moura is likely to start in a more advanced role for Spurs and he scored ten goals and got two assists last time out.

At £7.5m, it is certainly a gamble to put him into your side, but the Brazilian popped up with vital goals in the Premier League and in Europe last season.

Che Adams (Southampton)

The former Birmingham City striker could be a surprise package in the Premier League

After 22 goals and four assists in the Championship last season, critics doubted whether or not the 23-year-old could replicate the feat in the Premier League.

But Adams less than two minutes into his debut, in a 1-1 draw with Austrian outfit SCR Altach in mid-July.He then took less than 60 seconds to find the net in his next appearance and he needed only six minutes to fire in his third goal in as many starts in a 3-1 win over Feyenoord last weekend.

He can prove to be a huge difference for the start of the season at just £6.0m.

Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)

Zaha will be desperate to prove he is worthy of a move to a big club

The Ivory Coast international failed to get a move away so far this summer, despite bids from Arsenal and Everton.

Zaha has been put back into his original position of midfielder for his season and has a point to prove after declaring his desire to play in the Champions League.

The £7.0m forward produced 10 goals and 11 assists in the previous campaign, the first time he has recorded double figures for both statistics.
