Dream Team fantasy football is back – sign up here – for 2019/20 and we’re beavering away trying to pick our teams.
If you want to win your mini-league, or some of the £250,000 prize pot, you need to have a top defence, as well as a talented attack and no position is more important than that of the goalkeeper.
You only get one, so you don’t want to waste any of your three transfers per month on your shot-stopper.
If you’re going to win big, you need a reliable performer capable of earning the odd Star Man award and regular 7/10 displays on WhoScored to gain vital points.
But managers will also not want to spend too much money so they can spend their £50million budget elsewhere.
So, who are the best bargain goalkeeper in Dream Team? talkSPORT.com have taken a look.
LATEST FOOTBALL STORIES
Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea) – £3.5m
If you’re spending bigger bucks on a goalkeeper, the Blues ace is your man.
The only reason £4.0m option Hugo Lloris scored more points than him last year was the Frenchman’s run of penalty saves, meanwhile Frank Lampard’s backline should be stronger with N’Golo Kante likely to play towards his more natural position this term.
Bernd Leno (Arsenal) – £2.5m
No, we’re not having a moment.
The ex-Bayer Leverkusen shot-stopper isn’t a bad player at all and with more work and possible upgrades this summer we should see an improved defensive output from the Gunners.
Leno will certainly get more points than last season.
Lukasz Fabianski (West Ham United) – £2.5m
Only one shot-stopper averaged over 7/10 on WhoScored.com, and that was Polish ace Fabianski.
He might not get heaps of clean sheets, although this could improve with additions to the Hammers, squad but he’s a steady point-scorer.
Ralf Fahrmann (Norwich City) – £1.0m
Landing a goalkeeper on loan with eight Bundesliga seasons under their belt is impressive for a newly-promoted side.
Sure, he was displaced at Schalke last season by talented youngster Alexander Nübel but he should be a fine performer at a cheap price.
Dean Henderson – as yet unassigned
Still on the books at Manchester United, the goalkeeper could be on the move to Sheffield United in the coming days.
If he does end up at Bramall Lane we expect him to start and he’s unlikely to cost too much cash either.
Keep an eye out for his arrival in the game.
