Etihad aces shine in the Dream Team
DREAM TEAM ROUND-UP: Arsenal deserve huge credit for the way they’ve burst out of the blocks this season. writes NICK ELLIOTT.
With October approaching, the Gunners sit at the top of the Premier League having won six of their first seven games.
Given that Mikel Arteta’s side also won their first European game in 2022/23, it might be reasonable to expect that dominance to be reflected in the Dream Team rankings.
While many Emirati residents are enjoying ample returns, not the least of which is the popular Gabriel Jesus (£5.7m) who has accumulated 45 points, Manchester City assets dominate the Stats Center at this point.
Joao Cancelo (£7.6m) is already in a class of his own at his position after building a 17-point lead at the top of the defensive leaderboard.
The Portuguese full-back has received seven ratings of 7+ this season, only one player has more at this point – more on him in a moment.
Cancelo built some momentum ahead of the international break, scoring 41 points in his last five games.
Similarly, Kevin De Bruyne (£7.5m) is the absolute best activist in his field right now.
