Fantasy Premier League tips: Bargain forwards ahead of FPL Gameweek 8

Carragher selected his team of the year for his column in The Daily Telegraph, and it is dominated by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

So, as you can probably imagine, picking an XI from the 2017/18 season could be hard so early on.

"I think Alderweireld last season was the outstanding centre-back", he added.

Tottenham finished third in the Premier League during the 2015-16 campaign and second last season.

"Alongside him his mate wasn't far behind him, Vertonghen".

The likes of Romelu Lukaku (7), Sergio Aguero (6), Alvaro Morata (6) and Harry Kane (6) are already firing their club towards the summit of the league, while the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mohamed Salah are looking impressive in midfield. "A great defensive record under Mauricio Pochettino".

The Premier League champions have four players in Carragher's side, Spurs have three, his former team Liverpool have two players, while there is one player each from the two Manchester clubs.

However, many Fantasy Football managers will need to make some alterations to their sides with some key players stuck on the sidelines.

Former Lille star Hazard will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Crystal Palace in their next Premier League game at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

"We are three or four years in now and I think we will be saying the same in 10 years about him being the main striker in the Premier League".

"I think the pressure is on United, City and Chelsea", said Silvestre on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (07:52am, October 13, 2017) when asked if Tottenham or Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League title this season.
