After an incredible debut season, Erling Haaland has entered the FPL All-Star Dream Team, knocking out Robin van Persie.

Here we look at the highest scoring XI in Fantasy Premier League history.

Brad Friedel

187 points - 2002/03

The American’s mark of 187 points was set in the first year of Fantasy Premier League and is yet to be beaten.

Friedel kept 15 clean sheets and saved two penalties in 2002/03, but arguably his best performance came in Gameweek 13, as he made 12 saves during Blackburn Rovers’ 1-1 draw at Southampton helping him to a nine-point return despite conceding.

For those who bought him at his starting price of £5.0m he returned 37.4 points per million spent, making him the best-value member of the all-time Dream Team.

Andrew Robertson

213 points - 2018/19

The best season ever recorded by a defender belongs to Liverpool's full-back. Robertson supplied 12 assists, kept 21 clean sheets and earned 29 bonus points in 2018/19.

He was particularly strong at home, with four of his five double-figure hauls coming at Anfield. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold

210 points - 2019/20

No defender has supplied more assists in Fantasy than Alexander-Arnold, with 61. Three of those arrived in one match in the 2019/20 season, as he produced a memorable 24-point haul away to Leicester City, adding a goal and clean sheet for good measure.

Alexander-Arnold is the only defender to have made five successive appearances in the end-of-season Dream Team, first appearing in 2018/19.

Virgil van Dijk

208 points - 2018/19

The Dutchman completes an all-Liverpool backline thanks to his impressive tally of 208 points.

During his best campaign, Van Dijk combined consistency with explosiveness notching 20 clean sheets and four double-digit hauls, including two goals and a 20-point return at home to Watford in Gameweek 28.

Mohamed Salah

303 points - 2017/18

The only player to register more than 300 points in a season. The Egyptian is also the only player to amass over 200 points in six consecutive seasons, two better than anyone else.

The highlight of an outstanding debut year for Liverpool was his 29-point return versus Watford when he scored four goals, provided an assist and received the maximum three bonus. One of 15 double-figure hauls he racked up across his 36 outings.

Frank Lampard

284 points - 2009/10

The Chelsea midfielder has made the end-of-season Dream Team on seven occasions, a record he shares with Harry Kane. Lampard has produced two scores worthy of inclusion in the all-star Dream Team, with 284 points in 2009/10 and 269 in 2004/05.

He combined 22 goals with 17 assists and 37 bonus points in his best season, including a 28-point haul against Aston Villa.

Cristiano Ronaldo

283 points - 2007/08

Fantasy managers had to wait until Gameweek 8 of the 2007/08 season for the Portuguese to net the first of his 31 goals, but patience was rewarded as he went on to set a then-record of 283 points in a single campaign.

Ronaldo also racked up seven assists and 35 bonus points, leading to a starting price of £14.0m the following year.

Alexis Sanchez

264 points - 2016/17

The Chilean’s outstanding campaign in Fantasy saw him rack up 264 points, thanks to 24 goals, 11 assists and 32 bonus points. He was particularly strong against weaker opponents, amassing 227 points when facing teams outside the top six.

Memorable moments included a 23-point return away to West Ham United and a 27-point haul across his two fixtures in Double Gameweek 37, as he notched double figures against both Sunderland and Stoke.

Luis Suarez

295 points - 2013/14

The fifth Liverpool player to make the cut, the Uruguayan produced a record 55 attacking returns during 2013/14 thanks to 30 goals and 25 assists.

A feat made all the more remarkable given that he missed the first five matches as he completed a ban from the previous year. When he eventually started, he notched 152 points and eight double-digit hauls over his opening 12 matches.

He went to average 8.9 points per match for the season, the best rate of any player to make the all-star Dream Team.

Erling Haaland

272 points - 2022/23

The Norwegian set a new goalscoring record in his debut season, finding the back of the net 36 times, as well as supplying nine assists and earning 40 bonus points.

His ownership peaked at a stagerring 85.5 per cent in Gameweek 23, and he was captained on more than 200 million occasions.

Thierry Henry

271 points - 2002/03

The second member from the inaugural season in 2002/03, Arsenal’s Frenchman totalled 47 attacking returns, the second highest tally on record after the 55 of Luis Suarez.

Henry combined 24 goals with 23 assists and 42 bonus as he racked up 271 points. This was the first of four successive seasons in which he surpassed 200 points, a feat that remains unmatched among forwards.
