Out of that group, we’re backing seven of them to reach 200 points again this coming season: Kane, Fernandes, Salah, De Bruyne, Son, Mane and Mahrez.
And here we’ve identified seven other players we’re backing to reach a double century of points in 2021/22 if they avoid serious injury.
Jack Grealish (£4.5m)
The most-expensive player in British football history was on course to reach 200 points last season before a shin injury cut his campaign short.
Having traded Villa Park for the Etihad – the home of Dream Team points in recent years – it’s difficult to imagine Grealish struggling while surrounded by so many talented team-mates.
The underlying numbers relating to the 25-year-old’s playmaking are among the best in Europe and so Dream Team bosses should expect an increase in goal involvements.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (£4.5m)
Just two defenders achieved 200+ points last season but it was notable that Liverpool’s homegrown right-back ended on 154 points despite struggling for form during the first two thirds of the campaign.
With Virgil van Dijk (£5.0m) set to return to the heart of the Reds’ defence and the highly-rated Ibrahima Konate (£3.5m) strengthening the back four further, Alexander-Arnold should benefit from more clean sheets this term.
The 22-year-old’s ability to provide plenty of assists from defence make him a top-tier asset.
Harry Maguire (£4.5m)
The man affectionately known as ‘slab head’ plays every minute of every game when fit.
Combine his omnipresence for a top-four team with his habit of bagging Star Man awards and you’ve got a 200+ point candidate.
Maguire fell just 16 points short last season and the impending arrival of Raphael Varane should allow him to make up the difference this time around.
Ruben Dias (£4.5m)
No need to overthink his one too much.
The FWA Footballer of the Year would have cruised past 200 points last season had he started the campaign as first-choice centre-back.
Jadon Sancho (£4.5m)
A bold prediction here.
Man United’s big-money signing hasn’t played in the Premier League before but his attacking output for Borussia Dortmund was just so impressive.
Sancho is one of only five players to register 15+ goals and 15+ assists in a single league campaign (top five European leagues only) in the last 15 years alongside Lionel Messi (x5), Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Eden Hazard (x2) – not bad company, eh?

Mason Mount (£4.5m)
Chelsea’s academy success story was ever so close to the 200-point mark in 2020/21 (191 points) and should make the cut if he continues his rapid development.
Chelsea’s wastefulness cost Mount four or five assists last season – if the Blues can address their problems in front of goal then the 22-year-old may well be the key beneficiary.
Timo Werner (£3.5m)
We finish with the boldest claim of all.
The German endured a strange first season on English soil – flicking from the sublime to the ridiculous, sometimes in the space of the same move.
Permanently threatening, Werner’s finishing totally deserted him for much of 2020/21 as he mustered just six league goals.
However, the 25-year-old amassed 161 points by the season’s end so surely 200 is feasible if he makes even a minor improvement in front of goal?
Having taken a year to settle in, and with Thomas Tuchel now at the helm, we’re backing Werner to finish among the top five forwards this season – you heard it here first!
