If you’ve been following our series of beginner’s guides you might be ready to start building your collection.
Here, regular writer MDJ has a look at some Premier League players you can find on Sorare and examines how they are performing.
There are over 300 licensed teams on Sorare from leagues across the world. The Premier League isn’t licensed (yet) but Liverpool are among the currently licensed teams and West Ham have been licensed in the past too.
And that’s not all. There are plenty of other Premier League players available on Sorare since being transferred into the league from other teams – well over a hundred in fact – so there are plenty to choose from.
Here are a few of them…
Let’s start with Alisson. Liverpool’s main man at the back is one of the best goalkeepers on Sorare, consistently scoring highly, even with Liverpool’s recent defensive frailties. Clean sheets are gold dust for keepers, and the main thing that underpins good scores, but good goalkeeping performances can be enough on their own.
Take the recent Liverpool game against Spurs as an example. It was a tight game and Alisson didn’t manage to keep a clean sheet but made eight saves. This, and his other goalkeeping actions, contributed to an all-around score of 18.2, bringing his total score to 53.2 points.
Other goalkeepers you might want to consider are Hugo Lloris and Bernd Leno – both are consistent scorers and are permanent fixtures for their teams between the sticks
If you’re playing FPL this year, the chances are you’ll have Kieran Trippier in your team. He’s the highest-scoring defender on FPL and also tops the defender chart on Sorare as it stands – beating every single other defender in the world right now, quite an achievement!
His average over the last five games is 89.9. Given the maximum possible score is 100… well you can see how incredible that is.
It may be difficult for him to maintain this level of scoring but his role in the Newcastle team, his set pieces plus Newcastle’s current form, means he’s likely to continue to be a reliable asset on Sorare.
The challenge will be getting hold of one of his cards – there are only 115 on the platform (from his time at Atletico Madrid). If you can’t pick up a Trippier, perhaps look at Diogo Dalot, Rúben Dias or the Arsenal defensive duo of Gabriel and William Saliba.
Sticking with the theme of the best players on FPL, Kevin De Bruyne is one of the stand-out players from the midfield selection on Sorare. His consistency is his strong point – an average of 72.5 points over the last 40 games.
Those high scores come from his attacking play, with a goal or assist in the majority of matches, and always creating chances for the rest of the team.
De Bruyne is available on Sorare thanks to the Belgian national team cards being minted last year. Like Trippier, he’s in fairly short supply but there are plenty of solid alternatives you could consider, such as Bruno Guimarães, Dejan Kulusevski, Thomas Partey and Thiago Alcântara. More than 50 different Premier League midfielders in fact.
We can’t talk about forwards in the Premier League without mentioning one man… The Terminator, Erling Haaland.
Haaland cards appeared on Sorare during his time at Dortmund but they are in high demand, as you might expect. His scoring record lends itself to high scores but without a goal involvement there is less to get excited about, as his all-around involvement in games is often pretty minimal.
If you want an alternative, there are plenty of other big names to consider – like the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz, Manchester United’s new wonderkid Antony or Willian at Fulham.
Even without the Premier League licence, there are plenty of EPL names to choose from but rumour has it the Premier League is on the verge of signing a new fantasy sports licence and Sorare are in the frame for this. If that turns out to be true, now could be a good time to get a head start on building your collection.

Why are people taking out Foden?
I'm considering getting him in
More nailed on alternatives.
Ill hold for this week but hes gone after WC for sure.
Sits upon the Pine Throne.
3, 9, 2, 4, 4, 2, 8, 19, 11, 2, 1, 1, 1.
he has not starting any pl games for a while and now also now starting midweek.
They don't need him, probably saved for the wc up at this point
Hope Southgate sits him upon the pine too. I would be very amused by this.
He's great if you want 1 point
Just have no faith in him
Panicked last week when i got him in
Which to take out with my free transfer? £1.7 ITB:
A: Wilson to Nunez
B: Pope to someone
C: Foden to someone
Wilson trained away from the group? Covid?
Could be. Either way he's a doubtful this GW.
Yup i guess I'm selling!
Noooo Callum, what am I going to do now….
g2g, bench order ok?
Cancelo Trippier Gabriel
Salah Saka Foden Marti Andreas
Raya Solanke Tark Neco
I'd go Solanke over Andreas.
Solanke over Andreas imo
you're playing both Foden and Andreas before Solanke? I'd struggle with that
Thanks all. Foden 100% yeah, Solanke/Andreas was a flip of a coin for me, but maybe Solanke edges it. United Def not convincing with Varane out.
Martinelli Almiron Bilva points predictions please?
5, 2, 5.
8, 8, 1
3, 600, 1
Thanks all, Almiron edges it he based on averages.
Amy suggestions? 2FT, 1.7itb
Cancelo Trip Neco
Salah Rash Mart Bailey
Haaland Kane Mitro
Raya Andreas Justin Doherty
Mitro to Nunez? Downgrade doherty to make up the cash?
Does everyone think Nunez defo starts over Firmino?
I can't speak for everyone, but yes.
Aren’t both going to start ?
That’s what I thought
Firmino's in holiday mode now
"Howe says he will "wait and see" for Wilson against Chelsea after illness as he has been training separately."
This is annoying news!!
I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few Internationals have an "illness" or fatigue this weekend
Missed the deadline, well sort of, for a second week running. What to do here? Thinking to make a keeper transfer as I have 2 FTS. I’ll wait to see how many minutes Foden gets this week and decide on whether to finally get rid for someone. Also have a slight issue up front.
0m in the bank.
Cancelo Trip Dier
Foden Salah Andreas Zaha Trossard
Iversen Neco Mitro* Fofana
Wilson Mitro to Nunez / Fodder?
Oh yeah that could work.
I would probably upgrade Wilson and downgrade Foden, if this was my team. Liverpool strikers could kill it on Saturday and so could Arsenal midfielders. One of the options would be to change two strikers for Darwin and Solanke, who seem to be popular picks right now. I don't see obvious moves, just plenty of interesting options to consider.
Foden to Almiron and Wilson to Nunez?
Have Mitro and Wilson. Worth selling both for a hit or just sell one for Darwin and play Andreas.
Just the one should do
Mitro + Gordon > Darwin + Bailey the best use of 2FTs here?
I’ll bring Cancelo back in the WCWC
Trippier Shaw Castagne
Salah Foden Martinelli Gordon
Haaland Kane Mitrovic*
Ward Andreas Neco Guehi
Kulu and Solanke is an option too
Nice one, thanks
Play Andreas vs United (H) or Bailey vs Brighton (A)
Tricky one, probably Bailey
I am thinking of playing both in a bench boost
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE ARTICLE ABOVE TO SELF DESTRUCT.
What is sorare anyway?
I thought i said sorear$e
Who cares! Not FPL as far as I am concerned. Just gabbling stuck in your face.
Bearing in mind the disaster it turned out to be with the servers last gw, do people still intend on waiting for last minute line ups for city game?
No, lesson learned for me
Aye same here was too stressful haha
i'm waiting, I refuse to be manipulated into making early transfers at the threat of a game going down.
The servers just don't go down though…
No, made mine already
Way to go !
Nope, after being unable to make moves last week I’ve got Mitro > Solanke already done to avoid price rise and have exact money for Toney > Darwin later barring any bad news from Klopp today. Might change captaincy from Haaland to Salah last minute based on leaks but transfers + captaincy is too risky after the last few weeks mayhem!
Best pick to replace Dcl up to 8.1 except Wilson?
what about Martial?
I feel that andreas would score v.s his pervious club
He will be motivated
Tripper Dunk White
Salah Saka Rashford Almiron
Haaland Kane Solanke
(Ward Justin Guéhi Andreas)
1FT 3.5 itb
A- Solanke > Darwin
B- Justin > Cancelo
C- Rash or Saka > Foden or Kulu
D – other Thoughts ?
Martial points prediction? More than Bilva?
6 less than Bilva.
Are there any other replies where Martial scores more than Bilva?
Crazy to take out wilson & foden reading comments for a hit?
If you'll have 11 starters. Keep 4 points.Wilson could start yet. Foden could too but more rotation risk.
Mitro to Wilson (if fit)?
doubt you'll find out if he's going to play
No too risky neither play.
I hear you, thanks folks
Best move here?
A) Foden to Eze and Wilson to Kane for -4
B) Foden to Zaha and Wilson to Darwin for -4
C) Wilson to Darwin for free
Surely Foden wont be benched again? he didnt play a single min mid week so that means he starts?
No idea… no point trying to guess with Pep anymore
Sits upon the Pine Throne, going nowhere.
Absolutely he starts.
"Surely" and "absolutely" are not words that I would choose to apply to the Foden situation right now
I have both Mitrovic and Wilson, not ideal.
We don't know yet
Me too. 1 FT plus subs. It'll be grand.
I will be relying on my subs Andreas, Webster and Neco. I've already done Gabriel in for Chilwell.
Anyone looked at a maximised money in the first 11 team from week 17
Cancelo Trippier White beuno fodder
Salah Trossard Rashford Zaha Martinelli
Kane Haaland Greenwood
With money to make Zaha to Maddision / Saka from week 19
The opposite actually… been making some benching headache drafts in anticipation of being hit with World Cup hangovers. But then when it comes to actually choosing one of Mitrovic, Trossard, Almiron, etc. to bench I suddenly hate it again. Bit undecided on strategy for now, but I guess it'll probably be something in the middle like Cresswell, Patterson, Greenwood/Andreas
I always do this but don't want to lose Andreas as my first sub
NEW ARTICLE POSTED
I have Salah. No Haaland. Costs -4 to get Haaland, sacrificing KDB.
Mitro and Wilson doubts.
A) Mitro and KDB to Haaland and Zaha.
B) Wilson and KDB to Haaland and anyone 8.3 or less.
C) Ignore Haaland, captain Salah and choose to move one of Wilson or Mitro for a 7.5 forward or less.
Is there still a FFS sign up/referral code for Sorare?
