The first name on my teamsheet. He is worth every penny at £7.5m. In my view, this season he will break the points record for a defender, which was set by his team-mate Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) in 2018/19 FPL, when he totalled 213 points.
Having made his move to Southampton permanent, I expect the attack-minded Walker-Peters to impress and really make the right-back spot his own.
At £4.0m, if he consistently starts he will be a wonderful enabler for the rest of the team. Crystal Palace’s first five home matches look promising for clean sheets.
An FPL team without Salah just wouldn’t be right. He is consistently fantastic and if James Milner (£5.5m) doesn’t play as much this season then Salah will take more penalties.
Arsenal's first two fixtures against Fulham and West Ham United are just too nice to miss. After that I’ll replace him with Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m). His new position in midfield means an extra point per goal and per clean sheet, which increases his appeal.
His performances from Gameweek 30+ onwards last season have made me determined to own him for the start of 2020/21. His speed and energy have made him the heartbeat of the Newcastle United team and everything good comes through him.
Kane is expensive but Tottenham Hotspur have a nice start to the season. They look set for immediate fixture congestion in the Premier League, UEFA Europa League and EFL Cup but, as their talisman, I expect Kane to start every league match and bring in attacking hauls.
A tried and tested Premier League striker, Mitrovic is a really nice option at £6.0m. Fulham have a tough opening match against Arsenal but, after that, the favourable fixtures should provide him with plenty of chances.
This final spot is a hard one to fill. If Brewster gets a loan move to another Premier League team then he is a great option. If not, I might have to rethink. I have £0.5m in the bank but would need another £0.5m to get the likes of Charlie Austin, Patrick Bamford or Aaron Connolly (all £5.5m).
To save money to spend elsewhere, I'll have Ryan’s understudy as my No 2, making Brighton the club for my set-and-forget ‘keeper choices in 2020/21.
Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) was my original choice but West Ham have a difficult run of fixtures to start. Livermore registered three goals and four assists last season and, as captain of West Bromwich Albion, is guaranteed starts, which is ideal as a fifth midfielder.
Although he doesn’t play in Gameweek 1, Burnley are known for their rock-solid defence. I don’t want to have to use a transfer bringing him in afterwards, so he’ll be benched for the first week.
I want Fernandes straight after his blank in Gameweek 1. His form since arriving at Manchester United has been excellent and I expect that to continue from Gameweek 2 onwards. He'll sit on the bench ready to go, without me having to transfer him in.
