The launch of the 2021/22 Fantasy Premier League on Tuesday prompted a buzz of excitement from FPL managers all across the world. 

Managers got a sense that the game was about to live when all 20 clubs teased out some of their player prices. But for @LetsTalk_FPL it was all about the unsung heroes in the centre of midfield.

For FPL Daily presenter @OliviaBuzaglo, she is drawing inspiration from the UEFA Euro 2020 performances of Chelsea's German midfielder Kai Havertz, who is priced at £8.5million in the 2021/22 game.

Two days of price reveals meant only one thing for @goweramg, while @ElKneeKnow was keeping a keen eye on the news filtering from all 20 PL clubs.

The values of Robert Sanchez, Diogo Jota and Raphinha were too good to ignore for @Conk_fpl while @BenKelly9 was excited to see Brentford reveal four player prices ahead of their maiden PL campaign.

For @fplmacks, the way that managers are forced to choose between premium players was a welcome challenge.

The thought of creating a fresh 15-man squad prompted much joy from @OfficialUssef, @PratikGhogale and @LukeConlaund4.

FPL expert @zophar666 pointed out that the early release of the game could present managers with a number of bargains should players move between PL clubs, while @ffscout_az bemoaned the fact that he is only able to select three Brighton & Hove Albion players.
