I plan to have a cheap set-and-forget goalkeeper and McCarthy's early fixtures made it an easy decision to go for him.
The first name on my teamsheet and a must-own. Even with his price hike he remains a bargain.
Completing the double-up in Southampton's defence, he's a great price and has promising fixtures.
He has promising opening fixtures and offers a cheap route into an improving Arsenal defence.
A great option for the opening couple of Gameweeks while I go without Manchester City players.
It's an easy decision to select the most consistent player in the league over the past three seasons.
A great price backed up with great fixtures, he's a gem as a fifth midfielder when going with a 3-5-2.
There's not a lot of choice at his price. He had a very good season in 2019/20, has proven his worth in the Premier League and has solid fixtures.
The final name in a Saints triple-up, he's a good placeholder at this price point and I expect him to continue his impressive performances from last season.
He could start for Villa in the opening weeks at least, before Tom Heaton (£4.5m) returns to fitness and replaces him.
A great route into a very solid Burnley defence, with promising fixtures to follow their Gameweek 1 blank.
A must-own given he's on penalties and Manchester United have great fixtures after their blank Gameweek 1.
Perhaps the most desirable of the £4.5m forwards, although he will be confined to the bench most weeks as I plan to use a 3-5-2 formation.
Part 1: Alexander-Arnold can be a record-breaker
Part 2: Double up on Wolves wing-backs
Part 3: Get Vardy from the start
Part 5: Kane can profit from early fixtures
Part 6: Double up with West Ham
Part 7: Build defence around Liverpool duo
