Fantasy Premier League Confirm Erling Haaland's Starting Price

Fantasy Premier League players will have to decide whether or not Pep Roulette will effect Erling Haaland, with the new Manchester City striker's price now confirmed.

In theory picking City players on fantasy football should be a really simple tactic, considering more often than not Pep Guardiola's team win, and often win well.

However, because of Guardiola's penchant for switching things up so often it's become a game within a game to work out who he's going to drop from one week to the next.

Haaland's arrival does pose questions as to whether the striker will fall into the roulette or he'll be immune to it. If it's the latter surely all fantasy football managers will want him in, after all he is predicted to score 30 goals in his first season in England.

Well now they can start planning to have him in their team, with the confirmation that the 21-year-old will cost players £11.5 million of their £100 million budget.

Interestingly he isn't City's most expensive player to start the season, as Kevin de Bruyne will set people back £12 million of the budget.

Kyle Walker's £5 million price certainly catches the eye, although the links with Brighton's Marc Crucella might see Joao Cancelo move to the right and leave Walker a back up.

That said no one is ever really back up in a Guardiola side so it might not make a huge amount of difference which of their players you pick, especially considering the depth they have.

Eagle eyed fans might notice that not all City's main players have been given a price on the team's video, with Gabriel Jesus missing.

The Brazil forward is expected to join Arsenal in the very near future, where he's far more likely to be a regular starter and a good pick for fantasy.

Funnily enough though, the Gunners have annoyed their prices for the upcoming season as well but with no confirmation of his transfer, Jesus is left off that list too.

Players should be warned, research has revealed that the game can negatively impact player's mental health, especially if you commit more time to the game.

You imagine he'll be picking Haaland and hoping the Norwegian scores enough goals to stop him going on any more embarrassing dates.
