We are building a Fantasy Football team on Premier League.com for Premier Skills English and we need your help. We need your knowledge of the Premier League as we try to create a team that can rise to the top of the Fantasy Football League table. At the moment, we have three strikers in our team but by the start of the Premier League season we need a squad of 15 players.
This week, we want you to choose the five midfielders that we should have in our team. The challenge is selecting the right players without spending too much money.
We want you to tell us who you think should be in the Premier Skills English Fantasy Football team. So leave a comment below and say who you think we should pick and why. To help you, we have put together some useful language about midfielders. Have a look at the page and then come back and share your ideas in the comments section. If you agree or disagree with another user, you can reply to them. If you disagree, please be polite.
Which midfielders should play in the Premier Skills English Fantasy Football team?
Should we go for Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, Kevin De Bruyne at Manchester City or Riyad Mahrez at Leicester City?
Remember, in Fantasy Football, you need to think about the money we have in the bank, too. We've already spent £31 million on our strikers. Maybe we should look for a bargain or two, some players that will cost less but will perform well!

Jack: Last week, we started building our Premier Skills Fantasy Football team. We started with the three strikers we need in our squad.
Rich: Yes, we had lots of comments on the forwards discussion page. There was a lot of love for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Alex from Ukraine, and Ye Yint Maung from Myanmar both want to see him in our team.
Jack: OK, who else? I mean, we need three.
Rich: Hassan Raja from Pakistan thinks Aguero’s consistency should get him in the team.
Jack: Yes, he’s very consistent. He scores regularly.
Rich: then it got more difficult. Ibrahimovic and Aguero are very expensive so we don’t want to spend all our money on strikers or we won’t have any money for the rest of the team.
Jack: Rema from Serbia thinks that surprise selections are important. We probably need someone who is a bit cheaper.
Rich: Aragorn1986 from Montenegro thinks that Danny Ings and Marcus Rashford might be good cheaper buys.
Jack: But Kwesimanifest from Ghana says it's important to know that a player will be playing and picked for the starting 11 each week. We can’t be sure that Ings and Rashford will play.
Rich: That’s true. Some of you think Vardy and Lukaku would be good picks but three expensive strikers might be too much.
Jack: So, we’re looking for a cheap striker, who will play and score goals.
Rich: Davillions from Spain thinks Alvaro Negredo at Middlesbrough is a good buy and I agree with him. He will play every week and costs only £6.5 million.
Jack: OK, so that’s Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic who costs £11.5 Million, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero who costs £13 million and Middlesbrough’s Alvaro Negredo who costs £6.5 million.
Rich: That’s £31 million already. We’ll have to buy some cheaper midfielders!
Jack: And that brings us to this week’s discussion. We need to choose five midfielders for the Premier Skills Fantasy Football team.
Rich: We need a couple of great players and we also need to find a bargain or two.
Jack: A bargain is a player who will score lots of points but is not too expensive!
Rich: Let us know which midfielders we should pick in the comments at the bottom of this page!
Jack: And remember to register your own team on the fantasy football website and join the Premier Skills League. I’ve added the link and the code you need on this page, too.
