There may be several weeks left before the English football season comes to a conclusion but there’s never a bad time to consider your fantasy team for the upcoming campaign. While two teams are pulling clear at the top of the Championship table, there is a tough battle going on for the promotion playoff slots.

A number of top class second tier talent will be making the step up in 2022/23 – either with their current clubs or with new sides who will be closely monitoring the transfer markets. Here are five players who could be involved in the Premier League shake up next season.

Aleksandr Mitrovic: Fulham


With 11 games left in the current campaign, Fulham are 11 points clear at the top of the table. The Cottagers look certain to be promoted at the end of 2022/23 and the man whose goals have been driving them forward is Aleksandr Mitrovic.


The Serbian international striker has scored an incredible 34 goals in 32 matches for Fulham and will definitely be one to watch. Will the west London side be back in the Premier League next season? With that type of gap between them and the chasing pack, they look racing certainties for promotion and the bookmakers agree.

Sports betting sites in the UAE and beyond make Fulham heavy odds on favourites to be promoted. The odds, as supplied by sportsbooks affiliated to, put the Cottagers ahead of the chasing pack but there is time for the market to change.

Dominic Solanke – Bournemouth

Goals win games and they also add points to your fantasy league haul so it’s no surprise that the majority of names on this list will be strikers. Over at Bournemouth, the Cherries have slipped to third but they are just one point behind Huddersfield with no fewer than four games in hand.

The club are also among the favourites to be promoted and Dominic Solanke has been their most important player. The former Liverpool and Chelsea star has found his striking boots under Scott Parker and has scored 20 goals so far.

If he maintains that record, Bournemouth will step up and Solanke will be among the available players for your fantasy team.

Ben Brereton Diaz – Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn are in the playoff mix but, even if they fail to win promotion, there are a number of Premier League clubs interested in Ben Brereton Diaz. Brighton and West Ham are among those linked to the striker so he could well be featuring in the Premier League next season.

Brereton Diaz has also scored 20 league goals at the time of writing and could be a useful future addition to your fantasy league squad.

Marek Rodak – Fulham

It’s time to give a shout out to the goalkeepers now. Fulham have conceded just 29 goals in their first 34 league games of the season and that’s the lowest percentage in the division.

Goalkeeping duties have been shared between Marek Rodak and Paulo Gazzaniga but Rodak is the first choice and the man most likely to start between the posts in the Premier League.

Billy Sharp – Sheffield United

It’s back to the strikers now as we come to Sheffield United’s top scorer. The Blades may be outsiders for promotion but Sharp has Premier League experience and may attract bids if his current team doesn’t go up.
