You’ve seen the overall and silver teams of the season, now it’s time to look at the Ultimate Fan base team of the season.

*Disclaimer: Overall points include points gained during the two European gameweek competitions.

First up we’ve got the actual base team of the season and that’s Wolverhampton Wanderers after they accumulated 228 points.

Bruno Lage’s side ended up finishing 10th in the Premier League, but overachieved in Ultimate Fan, finishing eighth in the team leaderboard.

One big reason to that is Jose Sa, who had a fantastic season in the Wolves net, making a very impressive 125 saves.

Defenders

The first defender on the list enjoyed his first season as a Premier League player, after spending many campaigns in the Championship.

That man is Brentford’s Pontus Jansson, who picked up a tasty 101 points from the centre back position.

He only won 21 tackles and kept just eight clean sheets, but it was at the other end of the pitch where he picked up his points, scoring three goals.

Alongside Jansson is a somewhat surprising inclusion, with Newcastle’s Fabia Schär hauling in 99 points throughout the campaign.

Defensively, he didn’t contribute too much having won just 11 tackles, but he did help keep 10 clean sheets.

He was fruitful going forward, however, registering 4 assists while also scoring two goals of his own.

Midfielders

Moving forward to the midfielders and we’ve got a player who has gone under the radar in Ultimate Fan this season.

It’s another Brentford man, and it’s the big Dane, Christian Nørgaard. He popped up with a goal on the opening day before going on to score three more, and setting a further four up.

It was his defensive work which saw him rack up points, though, winning 60 tackles (only John McGinn won more in the top 20 midfielders).

Making an appearance is McGinn’s Aston Villa teammate, Jacob Ramsey (131), who had a fantastic breakthrough season.

The box-to-box midfielder was happy to stick a foot in and it shows, with the 20-year-old winning 45 tackles.

Ramsey was also one of Villa’s top scorers last season, finding the net on six occasions, while also registering a single assist.

Forwards

Emmanuel Dennis, despite being relegated with Watford, enjoyed a very fruitful season in Ultimate Fan, raking in 210 points.

What makes it more impressive, is he played for a poor Watford side whilst also he was unable to pick up any points in the European gameweeks. That means all of his points were won in Premier League games, a worthy addition to the base team of the season.

He defended from the front, winning 34 tackles, but it was his 16 goal contributions which saw him rack up the points.

Finally, to finish the base team of the season, we have Gabriel Martinelli, who picked up a very respectable 136 points.

The young Brazilian started just 55% of Arsenal’s Premier League games, so to get a points tally like that is impressive.

He did that by scoring six goals, not a bad tally considering his game time, as well as registering a further six assists.
