Fantasy Premier League (FPL) returns on Friday 9th August as Liverpool host newcomers Norwich to kick off the new season – and that fixture can’t come quickly enough!
Millions of FPL managers will have been ritualistically making changes to their teams over the past few weeks… and for good reason. Setting up a squad of 15 players with just a £100m budget is much easier said than done, especially when the likes of Mo Salah and Raheem Sterling set you back around £12m!
With that in mind, we got down to looking at a number of potential Fantasy Premier League squad templates for those in need of a helping hand. From a team filled with our own player recommendations to those with a few differentials, we’ve covered a whole host of options worth looking into.
