The three most popular players on Fantasy Premier League for all 20 clubs

Chelsea v Liverpool - Premier League

Premier League fans, are you getting excited yet?

It seems like an eternity since the world's greatest league concluded with Manchester City lifting the trophy on the south coast and Liverpool left bitterly disappointed in front of an optimistic Anfield.

Since then, fans have been slowly gathering excitement as millions are splashed out on new signings and pre-season friendlies give a glimpse of European clashes still to come. 

However, one of the ways that fans can pass by the next week of anticipation is by setting up a Fantasy Premier League account and challenging their mates to another season of competition.

While some leagues can fizzle out near the end, there's always a buzz at the start of the season when fans are contemplating which players will be shining over the next nine months.

The game itself has seen it fit to make Mohamed Salah the most expensive player at £12.5 million, while the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling will also cost a pretty penny.

Of course, every season sees bargain buys emerge and fans will already be scratching their heads as to whom will be the next Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raul Jimenez or Ryan Fraser.

One way that you can potentially get ahead of the game is by seeing who Premier League fans have been buying so far - and you should look no further than the Manchester Evening News.
