The 5 most in-form players you desperately need in your Dream Team

The old adage suggests form is temporary and class is permanent.

But the former is arguably more important when picking your Dream Team.

It’s all well and good selecting the big names, but if everyone else has already picked them in how do you stand out from the crowd?

The last month or so has been a fruitful period for a number of players… and we’ve outlined some of the best.

Statistically these are the most in-form Premier League players over the last five games…

1 Anthony Martial – 47 points in his last five games (Average: 9.4 points per game)

Remember when Jose Mourinho was hellbent on getting rid of Martial in the summer?

Well the Special One must be so glad Ed Woodward got in his way as the Frenchman has got Manchester United back on track.

Martial has scored five goals in his last five games across all competitions.

2 Gylfi Sigurdsson – 44 points (Average: 8.8 points per game)

Everton are finally looking like a team again and Sigurdsson’s form has played a huge part in that.

Without a doubt one of the most easy-on-the-eye midfielders in the Premier League, Marco Silva has found a formation to bring the best out of him.

Sigurdsson has either scored or assisted in four of his last five appearances.

3 Mo Salah – 41 points (Average: 8.2 points per game)

One season wonder, they said. Will disappear into the abyss, they said.

Alright Salah had a fairly sluggish start to the season but it was only a matter of time before he let loose again.

The Egyptian King has more than doubled his points tally in the last couple of weeks and has seven goals in all competitions.

4 Callum Wilson – 39 points (Average 7.8 points per game)

Wilson is really rubbing shoulders with the big boys at the top of the Dream Team player rankings.

He’s currently matching Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s total (73) despite costing a mere £3.5m.

Surely an England call up isn’t far away?

5 Aymeric Laporte – 36 points (Average 7.2 points per game)

It speaks volumes about Laporte’s consistency that a player can make the top five as a fairly non-prolific goalscoring defender.

Laporte typifies what Pep Guardiola wants from a centre back and, despite the competition for places, has been a mainstay in the side.

The Frenchman has kept eight clean sheets already this season.
