With the world of Premier League fantasy football soon to be springing into life, we thought we’d get the jump on the others to give you some advice on who NOT to sign in your team this summer.
We’re not saying don’t ever sign these five names, but this summer, for reasons we’ll explain, they’re best off avoided…
Alexis Sanchez – Arsenal
Sanchez may have enjoyed a strong debut season at the Emirates last year, and is widely expected to do so again in 2015/16. However, following a year of non-stop football, in which he has just recently helped Chile lift the Copa America, he is on the fast track to a full on burn out. He isn’t due back to Arsenal’s pre-season training until a week before the Premier League kicks off, and that means he won’t be probably won’t make any appearances until late August. Buy him, and you’ll be wasting a hefty chunk of your transfer kitty on someone that’s going to bring in absolutely no points.
