In this article, I will be discussing players that FPL managers should have in their team and the reasons why you should have them.

Players Every FPL Manager must have in their team
Billy Gilmour – Midfielder, Norwich City (£4.5)
This will come as a surprise to most. Why is he a must-have would be the question in your mind? However, having Gilmour in your team means you have a guaranteed starter for a very low price. He is one of the best budget planning midfielders this season.
Gilmour in his last 2 league appearances for Chelsea was MOTM. This means he is likely to do very well on the bps chart.
Finally, Gilmour guarantees bench points which will be very useful across the whole season.
So I think he should be a mainstay across the season bar any injury to him.
Tino Livramento – Defender, Southampton (£4.0)
Tino makes the list purely based on budget reasons. The highly-rated RB/RWB is going to give Walker Pieters tough competition this season.
He won’t be starting most of the games like Gilmour but he is the best priced £4.0 defender, in my opinion, this season.
Like Gilmour, he can guarantee fairly good bench points.
Trent Alexander Arnold – Defender, Liverpool (£7.5)
Refreshed, energized and ready to go. Trent has a point to prove this season after a somewhat abysmal last season.
He managed 2 goals and 8 assists last campaign but you can expect the numbers to improve. With the return of Van Dijk and Gomez in the defence, TAA will have the license to push forward more.
The English man also gets consideration for bonus points. The downside though is his price. He doesn’t come cheap but I recommend you create the space for him early on given Liverpool’s relatively easy opening fixtures.
Bruno Fernandes – Midfielder, Manchester United (£12.0)
The highest-scoring FPL player of last season. Bruno is likely to pick up from where he stopped last season.
With 18 goals, 14 assists and 13 clean sheets last term, the Manchester United talisman is ready to go again. He scored a wonderful free-kick against Everton in their last pre-season game.
Also, with the addition of Sancho in the attack, Bruno’s numbers should do even better. So if you are contemplating getting him, I suggest you should now.
Mohammed Salah – Midfielder, Liverpool (£12.5)
He is the most consistent FPL player since his arrival at Liverpool. The phrase “when in doubt captain Salah” is because of his consistency in giving points.
Salah has scored in the opening 4 games of the season since he got to Liverpool and I don’t expect that to change against Norwich on Saturday evening given he had the summer off.
Someone once told me he has a personal beef with Salah so he doesn’t use him. I told him to quash the beef if he wants to do well in the game.
Romelu Lukaku – Striker, Chelsea (£11.5)
Chelsea earlier today announced the signing of Lukaku from Inter Milan. The Belgian is not new to the league so expect him to hit the ground running.
Lukaku is a renowned goal scorer as shown in his time at West Brom, Everton and Manchester United. Also, he is expected to be Chelsea main source of goals this season.
Harry Kane – Striker, Tottenham (£12.5)
Harry Kane’s head is probably not in the right place at the moment because of his desire to leave the club. However, the English captain remains a very good source for FPL points, especially with his 242pts last season.
Whether Kane leaves or stays at Spurs, I recommend you have him in your team.
