Managers in Fantasy Premier League have an initial budget of £100.0m to spend on a squad of 15 players, who each have been allocated prices.

A squad consists of two goalkeepers, five defenders, five midfielders and three forwards.

To select a player for your squad, you can pick his club on the dropdown filter. You then have access to the club's player list, which is sorted by position. Clicking on the player will add him to your squad. 

Alternatively, you can type the player surname into the menu search function to find them. 

A maximum of three players can be chosen from any one Premier League club.

If you are short of time or need some assistance, you can use the "autopick" function, which will build a squad for you.

Remember deadlines

There are 38 Gameweeks, or rounds of fixtures, in every season.

The deadline is always 90 minutes before the kick-off time of the first match of the Gameweek.

In the interest of fair play, each manager may only enter one team.
