The popular competition is back for the new campaign and you can sign up right now!

Big-money summer signings like Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera are all available for you to buy plus the squads from newly-promoted Leicester City, Burnley and QPR join the fun.

David John is looking for his team to get to the top. Do you agree with his selection?

GOALKEEPER

Tim Howard, Everton £5.4m

One of the most consistent 'keepers in the top flight last season and seems to have a brilliant understanding with his centre-halves, which allows Everton manager Roberto Martinez to keep up his attacking ethos without having to be too worried about conceding a hatful of goals.

DEFENDERS

Vincent Kompany, Manchester City, £7.9m

Ashley Williams, Swansea, £6.0m

Jon Flanagan, Liverpool, £6.1m

Joel Ward, Crystal Palace, £5.5m

Joel Ward made a big impression last term and he looks the type of full-back to really blossom with that experience behind him. He is the value pick at the back, with Kompany and Flanagan more secure in terms of keeping stacks of clean sheets. Ashley Williams could be on the move this transfer window but the Swansea skipper is worth snapping up now either way.

MIDFIELDERS

Jack Colback, Newcastle, £4.9m

James Ward-Prowse, Southampton, £4.9m

Eden Hazard, Chelsea, £8.9m

Ravel Morrison, West Ham, £6.4m

Eden Hazard is our star man in midfield and he's worth every penny of the £8.9m as Jose Mourinho looks sure to keep getting more and more out of the Belgian ace. He'll hopefully link up nicely with Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge and should pay his way in the league. Ravel Morrison will have benefitted from dropping back into the Sky Bet Championship last season and should be more consistent in the top flight this time. James Ward-Prowse and Jack Colback are also improving performers and should chip in with enough to justify their places in the team.

STRIKERS

Danny Ings, Burnley, £7.0m

Robin van Persie, Manchester United, £9.9m

One expensive, one budget. Van Persie has really turned it on for Louis van Gaal and Holland at the World Cup and looks poised for a stellar season for Manchester United if he can remain injury free. He's certain to be the focal point of the Red Devils' attack under the new boss and is a must-buy. Ings and Burnley blew their Championship rivals away at times last season and there's a lot to like about the way Sean Dyche's team operate. Ings has a real eye for goal and will prove that point in the Barclays Premier League.
