Nine of the world’s leading Fantasy Premier League managers have combined to pick what they believe is the best team for the start of 2022/23 FPL.
Their four-man defence includes Tottenham Hotspur’s 33-year-old summer signing Ivan Perisic (£5.5m), who is expected to play as a left wing-back.
Fantasy expert Gianni Buttice explains: “We know Antonio Conte loves him. He had him at Inter and what we saw was Perisic getting forward and forward and forward.
“He loves a goal, he has real assist threat and he’s comfortable crossing on both feet. With that, you’re expecting a lot of Harry Kane [£11.5m] back-stick headers. He’s also got the durability and energy of a 27 or 28-year-old. This guy can get up and down all day long.”
Mason Mount (£8.0m) has also been selected.
Gianni’s fellow expert Utkarsh Dalmia, a Chelsea fan, says: “Mount was Chelsea’s top scorer last season and he also created 11 assists.
“In terms of game-time he’s one of the most secure in [Thomas] Tuchel’s line-up and he should improve on his tallies from last year.”
