Simon Mignolet, Liverpool, £5.5m GK


The Belgian has conceded only 1 goal in pre-season following his move from Sunderland, and he’ll be looking to continue that during what is something of a gentle start to Liverpool’s season. The shot-stopper is already familiar with Premier League life, and looks up to the challenge of succeeding at Anfield.

Branislav Ivanovic, Chelsea, £6.5m DEF


A free-scoring defender can be a Fantasy Premier League goldmine, and the Serb obliged for plenty of players last season – notching five goals to go with 12 clean sheets. He’s going to cost you, but when viewed as an investment Ivanovic is almost a sure-fire thing.

Seamus Coleman, Everton, £5.0m DEF


Roberto Martinez is seeking to impose a new style on Everton following his arrival at the club from Wigan, and attacking right-back Coleman could have a largely part to play in that. Comfortable both defending and coming forward, the Irishman can weigh in with his fair share of assists.

Eden Hazard, Chelsea, £9.5m MID

Eden Hazard, Chelsea

Jose Mourinho has challenged the Belgian to add more goals to his game this season, and the talented 22-year-old could just be about to deliver. Chelsea’s double Gameweek at the beginning of the season is likely to attract plenty to their players, and Hazard could well be the pick of the bunch.

Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool, £9.0m MID

The tricky Brazilian was a breath of fresh air in the Liverpool side when he joined midway through the last campaign, and he’s followed that up with an impressive pre-season. Capable of playing either in a central midfield three or an attacking trio, Coutinho proves that there’s life at Anfield beyond Luis Suarez.

Theo Walcott, Arsenal, £9.5m MID


Not always everybody’s cup of tea, but the England man enjoyed a fine campaign last season in Fantasy terms, clocking up 14 goals and 13 assists. Walcott will again be crucial for Arsenal in a season in which they’ll be expecting to challenge the elite given the changes at the top of the table.

Sergio Aguero, Manchester City, £11.0m FWD


City have recruited well in the summer, but Aguero still retains the title of their classiest act. Injury restricted him in the last campaign – and ultimately hindered his side’s title chances – but when he’s fit it’s arguable that there is a better forward in the Premier League.

Wilfried Bony, Swansea, £8.0m FWD


Following his goalscoring start to Swansea life in the Europa League, Bony will now be targeting an explosive start to domestic matters. The Swans’ record signing face a tough start to the season but the Ivorian will be looking for the same kind of instant impact we saw from Michu in 2012/13.
