Goalkeeper: Heurelho Gomes – Watford

Watford have enjoyed a terrific return to the Premier League after an eight year absence, comfortably avoiding relegation under Quique Sanchez Flores. A large part of that has been down to Brazilian shot-stopper Heurelho Gomes who has kept 11 clean sheets, racking up 153 Fantasy Football points.

Right back: Hector Bellerin – Arsenal

A frustrating season for Arsenal has provided few positives for the Gunners faithful. One positive however, is the continued form of young Spanish full back Bellerin. After dislodging Mathieu Debuchy last season, Bellerin has had a sensational campaign earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year and securing 160 Fantasy Football points.

Centre back: Toby Alderweireld – Tottenham

Spurs have been extremely solid at the back this season and a large part of that is down to Belgian defender Alderweireld. Since signing from Atletico in the summer he has looked at home at White Hart Lane, earning 165 Fantasy Football points.

Centre back: Laurent Koscielny – Arsenal

Alongside Bellerin, Koscielny has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers. The Frenchman has netted four goals this term, amassing 146  Fantasy Football points.

Left back: Christian Fuchs – Leicester City

Newcastle United v Leicester City - Premier League

A fundamental part of the Leicester fairytale, Fuchs had a slow start to his Foxes career playing only 23 minutes of Leicester’s opening seven games. From that point on though he has been instrumental to Leicester’s title triumph, racking up 145 Fantasy Football points. The pass he played for Vardy’s record breaking goal versus Manchester United was sublime!

Comfortably the best player in the Premier League this season he is also comfortably the best player in Fantasy Football with 236 points. Selected by 63.5% of sides, the PFA Player of the Year has been superb and looks like a real world class player.

Centre midfield: Mesut Ozil – Arsenal

1692755-35853580-2560-1440

The German playmaker has finally silenced his doubters this term with a string of remarkable performances particularly in the first half of the campaign. His form has continued, however Arsenal have stuttered and he is often let down by his forwards. He still earned 196 Fantasy Football points.

Centre midfield: Christian Eriksen – Tottenham

Eriksen has been a superb addition to Spurs since his arrival in 2013 and this season was his best yet. His 16 assists was the platformed Tottenham used to launch their title bid, as Eriksen racked up a tidy 174 Fantasy Football points.

Left midfield: Dimitri Payet – West Ham

Payet has been a revelation this year as West Ham have enjoyed a glorious season that has seen them challenge for the Champions League places. A free kick specialist Payet has been the Hammers main man scoring 9 goals and making 11 assists whilst earning 159 Fantasy Football points.

Striker: Harry Kane – Tottenham

AFC Bournemouth v Tottenham Hotspur - Barclays Premier League

Harry Kane proved his worth to Spurs this season scoring 25 goals to show that last season was no fluke. A now genuinely world class striker Kane scored 207 Fantasy Football points and you’d imagine he must start for England at Euro 2016.

Striker: Jamie Vardy – Leicester City

1741991-36838026-2560-1440

What can I say? Vardy made a formidable duo with Mahrez and guided the Foxes to the title. Vardy’s record breaking goal scoring form has made the fairytale season come true and propelled him to worldwide fame. Jamie is now a superstar, he bagged 199 Fantasy Football points throughout the course of the season.

Bench: Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal, Robert Huth, Dele Alli, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Romelu Lukaku, Sergio Aguero.
