5 Dream Team players with the potential to earn bountiful points this month | The Sun

THIS season, Dream Team managers have at least two transfers available to them every Gameweek.

While this allows for greater flexibility, it's still wise to look beyond the next round of fixtures when settling on a strategy.

With that in mind, we've identified five players with the potential to earn bountiful points throughout November, starting with Gameweek 11's match-ups.


We've omitted the blindingly obvious names because it goes without saying the likes of Erling Haaland (£7.5m) and Mohamed Salah (£6.7m) are strong options.

Kaoru Mitoma (£4m)

Dream Team bosses may have lost some confidence in Brighton after a run of four league games without a win.

However, the Seagulls have recently played Aston Villa (away), Liverpool and Manchester City – that's a tricky run in anyone's book.

There's a good chance optimism will be restored in the coming weeks as Roberto De Zerbi's side are set to play Everton, Ajax, Sheffield United, Nottingham Forest and AEK Athens before the end of the month.

An away day to Amsterdam would usually be a daunting prospect but the four-time European champions are actually bottom of the Eredivisie – they lost 2-0 at the Amex last week.

Brighton continue to concede goals but they pack a punch going forward – only Villa and Newcastle have scored more league goals at this stage.

Mitoma and Joao Pedro (£3m) are level on 75 points as the club's joint-best Dream Team performers but the latter is a rotation risk.

The Japanese winger has scored three goals and provided five assists in 2023/24 – he also leads the way for big chances created and bonus points among his team-mates.

Bruno Fernandes (£5.6m)

Gaffers will be reluctant to back Manchester United assets after Sunday's one-sided derby at Old Trafford.

However, the underlying numbers suggest Fernandes has considerable potential to deliver plentiful points.

Petulant he may be but the Portuguese playmaker has created more big chances than any other midfielder this season and he's joint-fourth in his position for shots on target as well.

He's also among the top ten midfielders for tackles.

Simply put, the Red Devils' captain has been a tad unlucky not to have earned more points so far this campaign though his overall tally of 72 is still very respectable.

Erik ten Hag's side will be hopeful of encouraging performances against Fulham and Copenhagen in Gameweek 11 – with Luton, Everton and Galatasaray to follow.

Fernandes is due a double-digit haul.

Jarrod Bowen (£4.9m)

West Ham have suffered three consecutive defeats but Bowen remains Dream Team's third-best midfielder nonetheless.

The England international leads the way in his position alongside Bryan Mbeumo (£3.6m) in terms of goals, he's bagged six in all competitions to date.

Only James Maddison (£4.5m) has registered more shots on target among midfielders.

Truth be told, Bowen's categorisation as a midfielder is a generous one – David Moyes has deployed him as an out-and-out centre-forward at times in recent weeks.

On current form, Gameweek 11 may pose a challenge for the Hammers as their league opponents Brentford just beat Chelsea while Olympiakos got the better of them in Greece last Thursday.

However, West Ham complete the month with fixtures against Forest, Burnley and Backa Topola – a team not many English fans knew existed prior to the Europa League draw.

Moussa Diaby (£3.3m)

Aston Villa are scoring so many goals this season that even those already backing Ollie Watkins (£4.7m) would do well to consider a punchy midfield option in addition.

We previously stated that Diaby's underlying numbers hinted that a double-digit haul was on the horizon and so it came to be last weekend when he took lowly Luton for 11 points.

The Frenchman ranks sixth among midfielders for shots on target and second for big chances created – his tally of eight goal involvements (three goals, five assists) will surely grow significantly as the season progresses.

Unai Emery's men face a stern test in the form of an away game against league leaders Tottenham this month but the Spanish tactician won't be overly concerned by November's other fixtures: Forest, AZ Alkmaar, Fulham, Legia Warsaw.

Diaby is great value at £3.3m.

Kostas Tsimikas (£2.8m)

We tipped the Greece international for a prosperous streak the moment news broke of Andy Robertson's (£3.7m) injury.

And Tsimikas hasn't let us down having notched 17 points in his two outings since he was promoted to first-choice left-back.

The 27-year-old didn't feature against Toulouse in Gameweek 9 but a ten-point return against Forest in Gameweek 10 underlined his viability.

Jurgen Klopp's troops travel to the Etihad first up after the international break but there should be plenty of points elsewhere against Luton, Toulouse, Brentford and LASK.

Tsimikas has earned seven bonus points in six outings this season.
