Marouane Fellaini’s (£4.9m) emergence as a Fantasy Premier League option is reflected by his first call-up to the weekly elite XI.

The Belgian scored 16 points in Gameweek 7, matched only by Ben Davies (£5.9m), and has convinced more than 73,000 managers to add him to their squads ahead of a trip to Liverpool.

While Fellaini stood out, it was defenders who excelled, forcing the Dream Team into an unfamiliar 5-4-1 formation.

Kasper Schmeichel (LEI) £5.0m

A second clean sheet of the season earns a maiden Dream Team call-up. The Dane earned three bonus points at AFC Bournemouth after making four saves and recovering the ball 16 times, more than any other goalkeeper in the Gameweek.

Ben Davies (TOT) £5.9m

A 16-point haul in the win at Huddersfield Town took the Welshman to three double-figure returns this season. Davies is averaging 8.2 points a match but faces a testing schedule in the forthcoming Gameweeks, along with successive UEFA Champions League ties with Real Madrid. 

Kieran Trippier (TOT) £5.4m

The other Spurs wing-back also earns recognition after two assists in Saturday's victory. Trippier has claimed more than 36,000 new owners since his 14-point return but is under threat from Serge Aurier (£5.9m), who returns from suspension for Gameweek 8.

Nacho Monreal (ARS) £5.4m

A first Premier League goal since March 2013 helps the Spaniard earn a first Dream Team appearance. Monreal has claimed eight bonus points this season, just one behind his 2016/17 total.

Hector Bellerin (ARS) £5.9m

Boosted by a fourth successive Arsenal clean sheet, Bellerin also produced his first attacking returns of the campaign in the win over Brighton & Hove Albion with his blocked shot assisting Monreal’s opener.

Stephen Ward (BUR) £4.6m

The Burnley left-back breaks the north London monopoly in the five-man defence having scored 12 points in the win at Everton. Ward is the best-value player in the game, providing 9.1 points per million so far.

Marouane Fellaini (MUN) £4.9m

Ignored by the Dream Team last season, the Belgian earns a first call-up in Gameweek 7 of this campaign thanks to a brace in the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace. Fellaini has scored three goals from just four shots, as he continues to fill the void in the absence of the injured Paul Pogba (£8.0m).

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £10.0m

The stunning strike at Stamford Bridge was De Bruyne's first goal of the season. Renowned for his supply of chances, the Belgian has delivered the most successful crosses (19) and key passes (24) and topped the ICT Index for Creativity in the Gameweek (88).

Abdoulaye Doucoure (WAT) £5.3m

The Frenchman earns a first call-up to the Dream Team in his second season with Watford. Doucoure’s goal at West Bromwich Albion was his third from three shots on target, and with 7.3 points per million, no other midfielder can match him for value.

Richarlison (WAT) £6.1m

The Brazilian has scored 6.6 points per million after a second double-figure tally of the season at West Brom. He has produced 18 shots inside the penalty area this season; only Mohamed Salah (£9.2m and 21) has more among midfielders.

Harry Kane (TOT) £12.7m

Another away fixture, another 13-point total. Kane has been bought by more than 200,000 managers, the most for any player, ahead of AFC Bournemouth’s Gameweek 8 visit to Wembley. The managers must be hoping the Spurs striker can translate his devastating form on the road to home matches.
