Who’s the No.1 name on your fantasy team-sheet?
If you are playing a Prem fantasy football competition this season, which goalies should you be scouting? Pies chooses six of the best:
1. Pepe Reina (Liverpool)
Pros The Spanish slaphead is established as Rafa’s No.1 stopper, so you know he’ll play in every league game, if fit. And with Liverpool’s squad looking stronger at the back than at any time in Reina’s Prem career, there’s a very good chance that his club will concede fewer goals than any other. Last season, only Man Utd and Chelsea conceded fewer goals.
Cons He’s one of the most expensive ‘keepers to buy. But worth it.
More after the jump…
2. Tim Howard (Everton)
Pros He’s cheaper than goalies from the big four. Everton are a defensive-minded, hard-working team. They rarely ship more than two goals in one game. T-Ho is a fine keeper approaching the peak of his career.
Cons Everton may have slipped behind their rivals in the summer. David Moyes has struggled to attract decent players to the club.
