The votes revealed by position:
Here’s the resulting team.
I tried to keep the value down but it’s still around £107.0m
Won convincingly by Nick Pope. I went for the cheapest reserve in Button.
No surprise to see that another Burnley defender won this so I’ve gone for the cheap end in Pieters. Tarkowski is the set piece threat at £5.5m.
Alexander Arnold gets the 2nd vote.
Aurier is the Spurs defender of choice.
I’ve gone to play 3-4-3 so there are 2 cheapies on the bench. Branthwaite who should start for Everton and Williams of United quite possibly.
Midfield and forwards
This is when it got tricky. The difficulty is fitting the voting team into the budget and to the limit on the number of places.
Sterling, David Silva and Salah were the first 3 votes. Then it was De Bruyne and Mahrez but we also had a problem with the fact that Jesus votes than both of them. So I had to park the situation at the time.
In the end I went for Mahrez over De Bruyne to save some cash and didn’t put in Jesus as he was behind Aubameyang and Kane and it wasn’t feasible to have 3 forwards at that price.
Ings should have been in the team but again I went for Greenwood as the cheap 3rd forward even though he had far less votes as the budget was already stretched.
I hope you found it interesting
