FPL: Harry Kane keeps England XI flying high but needs help

International breaks. No one likes them. Not even the England players, judging by recent performances. It does, however, give us some extra time to consider our Fantasy Premier League options ahead of the next gameweek.

This season we’ve set up five just-for-fun teams to make our FPL seasons a little more interesting, and we want your help with the decisions we make.

One of our teams is the England XI, made up purely of English players. You could say it’s our way of showing Gareth Southgate that we could probably do a better job than him.

The England XI has so far raked in a decent 329 FPL points and boosted that heavily with a GW7 haul of 64. It leaves them second in our mini-league.

We made just the one transfer ahead of GW7, bringing in Raheem Sterling for Michail Antonio but other than that there’s not a great deal we can do to this team, we feel.

If it wasn’t for the free-scoring Harry Kane, this England XI would be struggling massively and its clear he needs some help from other players in the squad. Marcus Rashford should still bring in some decent points, while John Stones and Dele Alli are more than capable of returning good numbers on a weekly basis.

But the others? It’s a bit average really, which is an accurate reflection of a real life England squad.

We need your help ahead of GW8. What changes should we make, if any? There’s £1.2 in the bank and a wildcard still available, so there’s plenty of room for tinkering if needed.
