And here’s what our very own betting dreamer had to say about picking his team…

“There could only be one man in between the sticks for me and that’s England number one. A top shot stopper with over 100 Premier League clean sheets, Joe Hart was always going to don the gloves,” he said.

“Nathaniel Clyne and Seamus Coleman flank Per Mertesacker in defence, with a blend of attacking width and leadership this threesome should rack up points for clean sheets, assists and goals.

“PFA Player of the Year, Hazard gets the armband and I’m certain the 24-year-old Belgian will get even more assists and goals than last year.

“He is in fine company in midfield with David Silva and Santi Cazorla two technically gifted gods of the Premier League.

“Louis van Gaal has invested well this year and United will be a force again I’m sure. That’s why anchor man Daley Blind gets the nod as he’ll be their unsung hero picking up many a cleansheet bonus and chipping in with the odd goal here and there.

“Sergio Aguero looks to be a doubt so Wilfried Bony is in line to fill his boots and will get amongst the goals early on in the season. The beast has had a year to settle in at the Etihad and with Watford first up he could make mince meat of the Premier League new boys.

Meanwhile, Southampton have got themselves a real gem in Juanmi, the 22-year old from Malaga completes my front three and will be the surprise package this season.”
