The transfer window is firmly shut, the squads have been assembled and the clubs are ready to do battle.

And by now you should have your very own squad ready to fight for the title and the bragging rights amongst your mates.

Here is the highest scoring Premier League Fantasy XI of the week. Read carefully as some of these players could be the key to your team beating the rest next week.

Goalkeeper:

Allan McGregor - Hull City - Value: £4.5m - 9 points

A clean sheet in a 1-0 win over West Ham as well as five saves by the Scotland international awarded him two bonus points this week.

Defence:

Steven Caulker - Cardiff City - Value: £5m - 11 points

Caulker got his first goal for his new club and earned his side a 2-1 over Fulham. His vital goal got the England defender the maximum three bonus points. At only 5 mil he could be a secret weapon for many - although don't expect too many clean sheets.

John Terry - Chelsea - Value: £6.1 - 11 points

The former England captain grabbed the equaliser at White Hart Lane during the 1-1 draw. Terry often pops up with a goal so is always good value.

Russell Martin - Norwich - Value: £4.8 - 8 points

The surprise package of the week is Norwich defender Martin. His surprise clean sheet in his side's 1-0 win over Stoke got the player four points and was awarded two bonus points for his solid display.

Midfield:

Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal - Value: £6.4 - 13 points

When will this lad stop scoring? Ramsey has the be the best value midfielder in the PL at the moment - available at the very affordable price of £6.4m. A goal and an assist in the 3-1 win over Swansea helped the Welshman to the accolade of highest scoring midfielder of the week.

Morgan Amalfitano - West Brom - Value: £5m - 12 points

The deadline day signing from Marseille has had a cracking start to his PL career. Having scored in the 3-0 win over Sunderland last week, the Frenchman continued his fine form with a goal and assist in West Brom's shock 3-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Leandro Bacuna - Aston Villa - Value: £4.6 - 12 points

Bacuna is one of the cheapest midfielders in the game but this week was one of the top performers. It was another shock result that gave the Villa winger his high score tally - with Manchester City losing 3-2 to Villa. Bacuna's superb free-kick and delicate pass earned him a goal and assist for the week.

Jonathan Howson - Norwich City - Value: £4.9m - 11 points

Howson got his first goal of the season and gave his Norwich side a vital 1-0 win over Stoke. The former Leeds man doesn't often get amongst the goals but when he does he makes it count.

Attack:

Luis Suarez - Liverpool - Value: £11m - 13

Suarez made his long awaited return from suspension in the PL this week and marked it by doing exactly what he does best: score. Two goals in the 3-1 win over manager-less Sunderland got the Uruguay man 13 points and proved that although he is an expensive risk at £11m - it will pay off most of the time. 

Daniel Sturridge - Liverpool - Value: £9.6 - 14 points

The value of the England striker is increasing every week as he cannot stop scoring. His goal this week was aided by two assists for Suarez and showed that Liverpool have one of the deadliest strike forces in the PL.

Romelu Lukaku - Everton - Value: £7.6 - 16 points - STAR MAN OF THE WEEK

I wonder how many Chelsea fans have Lukaku in their Fantasy Team and wish Mourinho had the same faith in him. Despite 17 league goals at West Brom last year - the 'Special One' - decided against keeping the youngster and allowed him to sign for Everton on-loan. His two goals and an assist in the nervous 3-2 win over Newcastle last night showed exactly why he is a steal at £7.6 million.

Total Score: 130 points Average Score: 44 points
