The Perfect Fantasy Football Team For The 2019/20 Season Has Been 'Calculated' - Who've You Got?!

The Perfect Fantasy Football Team For The 2019/20 Season Has Been 'Calculated' - Who've You Got?!

BT Sport have calculated the strongest possible Fantasy Football team to begin your league season with.

In the cheat-sheet concocted by BT, they have looked at 'The Script' to see how the 19/20 Premier League season will develop in the next nine months.

If you live and die by data and dispute the 'There are lies, damned lies and statistics' phrase then you can make the plunge and go all in with BT's predictions.

These predictions are working on a couple of variables, some which seem very likely and some which are questionable.

Manchester City winning their third consecutive title seems a relatively safe bet, but Manchester United and Arsenal are omitted from the top four.

At the opposite end of the table, it is working on the basis of Newcastle United getting relegated as well as immediate returns to the Championship for Norwich City and Sheffield United.

See below where your £100 million should be spent:

Goalkeepers: Ederson and Nick Pope

Defenders: Martin Montoya, Martin Kelly, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Phil Jagielka and Matt Targett

Midfielders: Alex Iwobi, Mohamed Salah, Raheem Sterling, Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey

Strikers: Harry Kane, Joshua King and Joelinton

Some inclusions such as Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah are obvious, as well as Harry Kane leading the line.

Joshua King is predicted to notch 11 goals and five assists for 'The Cherries'.

A surprising addition is Newcastle's record signing Joelintion, who is predicted to nab eight goals and four assists in his debut season on Tyneside.

In the midfield, Gylfi Sigurdsson is predicted to register 20 goal contributions for Marco Silva's Everton but missed out to fall in line with the £100 million budget.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a no brainer in the defence, after breaking the record of most assists from a defender in a single Premier League season.


In goal is Ederson, who's assist against Huddersfield last season showed that the Brazilian can offer more than just shot stopping for Manchester City.

We'll have to wait how the season goes to see if BT's predictions really have created the perfect team.
