The rules are basic too.

Pick a squad of 15 players with a £100million budget (four players/Premier league team) and put them into a formation.

Today we are looking at midfielders, and we have given you our choice of expensive, mid-range and bargain deals.

When selecting the engine of your team, certain criteria (and formation) have to be considered in order to gain points.

They can gain points by scoring a goal (25) with a bonus of 25 for getting a hat-trick, assists (10), a shot on target (5), and for every pass completed in the final third (1).

Points are also earned by starting a game (15), coming off the bench (5) and for every 10 minutes he is on the pitch (1).

They can lose points if they miss a penalty (-10), score an own goal (-25), handle the ball (-5), and receive a yellow (-10) or a red card (-25).

So here are our selections, and tomorrow we will be releasing our choices for the strikers.

Expensive: Nani (Manchester United) – price: £9.9m

Nine goals and 14 assists last year should have got him more credit than he did. A worry for picking the winger could be whether he gets selected ahead of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia. But if he does he will not fail to deliver.
