Fantasy premier league – Gameweek 1 lineup prediction


 I thought it might help in doing your fantasy premier league teams to see what I thought would be the lineups for GW1.  Things are moving fast so I’ll be updating it on Friday night.  My ususal source of injuries is Physioroom but with the site not working at its optimum, I’ve used the official fantasy premier league site although its not as accurate as it could be.  I’ve also added underneath the lineup where the lineup issues could be.  Tommorow I’ll be doing my fantasy premier league “ones to watch” which is my best picks in each position
