Sky Sports Fantasy Football's Tim Clement looks at which of the big deadline day movers are likely to rack up points for your side this season.

Mesut Ozil

The German playmaker is not only Arsenal's club record signing but also their most expensive player in Sky Sports Fantasy Football at a hefty £8.8m. Such a price tag is justified by his status as one of the world's most creative players, racking up more assists than any other player in Europe's top five leagues over the last five seasons. Goals were also hardly in short supply last season, netting nine times in La Liga, although the number crunchers at Sky Bet expect that figure to be significantly less at the Emirates, offering 8/11 on him scoring six or more. His nine goals and 15 assists from 23 starts would have seen him rack up close to 150 points last season without taking into account man-of-the-match and passing bonus points.

Verdict: Get in my team

Marouane Fellaini

How successful Fellaini is this season in Sky Sports Fantasy Football is likely to be dependent on how David Moyes utilises him at Old Trafford. It is difficult to see the towering Belgian used as a target man like he was at time at Everton, so it would not be a surprise to see his goal tally return to the sort of numbers we saw before last season's haul of 11. MOTM awards might also be harder to come by with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie leading the competition. Tackle and pass bonuses should be racked up, but goals and assists need to supplement that for a price tag of £8.3m. Essentially, a deeper-lying Fellaini is bad news for his Fantasy faithful.

Verdict: Good move for Marouane, bad move for Fantasy bosses

Romelu Lukaku

The powerful striker enjoyed a breakthrough campaign on loan at West Brom last season and seems to have the perfect platform to build on that at Everton. The Toffees were desperately lacking a prolific frontman heading into deadline day but now have themselves a man who racked up 17 goals from 20 starts and 15 substitute appearances last term. The creative support of the likes of Steven Pienaar, James McCarthy and Leon Osman should serve him perfectly, while Leighton Baines' set-pieces will be supply chances aplenty. At £8.6m, he looks far better value that the likes of Alvaro Negredo (£8.6m) and Iago Aspas (£8.5m).

Verdict: Get stuck into the Toffees' new star

James McCarthy

The young playmaker will be good for passing bonus points and potentially MOTD awards but goals are likely to be minimal. Three goals and two assists for Wigan last season saw him fail to reach triple figures, so it is hard to see the appeal at £6.9m, more than West Ham's Kevin Nolan who scored 10 times.

Verdict: Pass up the pass master

Fabio Borini

The Italian striker will be desperate to prove his worth after failing to make an impact at Liverpool, but whether he has what it takes to make it in the Premier League remains to be seen. His loan move to Sunderland should be the ideal opportunity with the Black Cats in desperate need of some attacking ammunition. A record of nearly a goal every other game during his final campaign at Roma points to potential, but a price tag of £7.5m means further evidence is needed before bringing him on board.

Verdict: Add to shortlist

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
