Best Fantasy Football team names – Our picks

Arsenal – Rice Rice Baby

Kicking us off is the runners-up from the past two seasons Arsenal, and we have gone for “Rice Rice Baby”, a play-on of the famous Vanilla Ice song “Ice Ice Baby” involving Declan Rice. Yes, it's very ‘2023' but it's here to stay! Traditionally, defensive midfielders do not score highly in FPL, although Rice moving into advanced positions will see him contribute goals and assists.

Aston Villa – McGinn and Tonic

John McGinn is a fan favourite at Villa Park, and we have gone for “McGinn and Tonic” because, who does not love a gin and tonic? McGinn could be a dark horse for FPL points next season if he is given the freedom to burst forward.

Bournemouth – Back of the Neto

Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto could be a cheaper alternative to some other high-profile goalkeepers in the game once it launches. “Back of the Neto” seems like an appropriate name for football lovers and Cherries fans.

Brentford – Kinder Mbeumo

Kinder Bueno is a chocolate favourite, and the play-on with Bryan Mbeumo's name makes “Kinder Mbeumo” a dream name for Brentford fans! A popular pick at the start of last season's game, Mbeumo could be a cheaper alternative again to the big-name midfielders.

Brighton – Dunk in Donuts

A homage to popular confectionary brand Dunkin Donuts, fusing Brighton fan favourite Lewis Dunk's name with it is a clever FPL name for Seagulls supporters. Dunk could be a decent price in the new FPL season, for a Brighton team that will aim to improve on last campaign's bottom-half finish.

Chelsea – Sorry Nic Jackson

Outkast's “Ms. Jackson” is a popular hit, and the fact that Nicolas Jackson's first name can be shortened makes “Sorry Nic Jackson” a funny FPL name for Chelsea fans. The striker can be frustrating in front of goal, but will only improve and could rack up plenty of FPL points.

Crystal Palace – Hakuna Mateta

Jean-Philippe Mateta became an FPL favourite towards the latter stages of last season after he went on an impressive goal streak for Palace. He could be an affordable price in the new game, and a play-on of his name to popular Lion King song “Hakuna Matata” is a match made in heaven.

Everton – Roll the Dyche

Our first manager-themed FPL name comes from Everton and Sean Dyche, with “Roll the Dyche” as opposed to the common phrase “roll the dice” appropriate for those FPL managers who like to take a risk. In terms of Everton FPL assets, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford are always worth considering for clean sheet and save points.

Fulham – Iwobi Wan Kenobi

One for Fulham fans who also love Star Wars. Alex Iwobi's name has a lovely play-on with Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi, and could prove to be a valuable FPL asset should the Cottagers perform well.

Ipswich – Woolf of Wall Street

Ipswich are tasting the Premier League again for the first time in over two decades, and some of their fans will be eager to sink their teeth into FPL. As for names, we have combined a part of defender Luke Woolfenden's with popular Leonardo DiCaprio film “The Wolf of Wall Street”, and Woolfenden could help FPL managers save money as a potential bargain option.

Leicester – Cheesy Iheanachos

We cannot help but love a food-themed pun and Kelechi Iheanacho's name is perfect for Leicester fans who love nachos. He could prove to be a valuable FPL asset if he can hit the ground running.

Liverpool – Tikka Mo Salah

Here's one for curry lovers, as Liverpool star Mo Salah's name sounds a lot like “masala”. He has always been a popular premium FPL asset, but in terms of potential bargains, Diogo Jota could prove to be great value for money if he can stay fit.

Manchester City – Haa Haa land

A play-on of popular Ryan Gosling film “La La Land”, City fans may want an FPL name to commemorate goalscoring machine Erling Haaland. He will be a popular FPL option once more from the reigning champions, but in terms of value for money, Josko Gvardiol was a popular pick last season and could prove to be again.

Manchester United – Onana What's My Name?

Rihanna's hit song “What's My Name?” is a perfect play-on for United goalkeeper Andre Onana, who may be priced kindly in the new FPL game after a poor league campaign for the Red Devils.

Newcastle – Howe Let the Dogs Out?

Baha Men's song “Who Let the Dogs Out” was a smash hit, and a nice play-on with Eddie Howe's name could make for a great FPL name for Newcastle fans. In terms of FPL assets, Anthony Gordon could prove to be a popular pick again, despite being linked with a move to Liverpool.

Nottingham Forest – MacAwoniyi cheese

Nottingham Forest fans who like macaroni cheese may like this one. Taiwo Awoniyi's goals could make him a viable FPL option providing that the striker can keep himself fit.

Southampton – Lallanas in Pyjamas

A classic FPL name, and appropriate now that Adam Lallana has re-joined Southampton. The midfielder could be a cheaper alternative to the more expensive FPL midfielders.

Tottenham – Vicario Leviosa

Vicario's name combined with a Harry Potter spell could be a popular pick for Tottenham fans. The Spurs goalkeeper could be a cheaper alternative to the likes of Ederson and Alisson.

West Ham – Bowen Arrows

Jarrod Bowen makes for a playful FPL name, and the West Ham winger has always been a popular pick in the game.

Wolves – Cunha Feel It

A play-on of The Jackson 5 hit “Can You Feel It”, Wolves striker and potential FPL asset Matheus Cunha's name fits perfectly.
