We look at who are rated the most valuable players in the new Sky Sports Fantasy Football game.

Sky Sports Fantasy Football rate Robin van Persie as the most prized asset in the Premier League ahead of the new season.

At £10m, the Manchester United man is the most expensive player in the new game, which has been launched with the new season just over a month away.

Despite wanting a move away from England and starting the season with six games still to be served from his 10-match ban, Luis Suarez is the second most pricey at £9.9m.

Suarez finished last season with 23 goals to his name, three behind leading scorer Van Persie, but is considered 20/1 by Sky Bet to be the Premier League's top marksman in the upcoming campaign.

Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney, who both netted just 12 times in the league last season, are next on the list, while big things are expected from Daniel Sturridge (£9.2m) and Christian Benteke (£9m).

Of the midfielders, Chelsea's Juan Mata is rated the highest at £9m having contributed a league high of 17 assists, followed by PFA Player of the Year Gareth Bale (£8.9m).

Santi Cazorla was actually the highest points scorer last season with 262 to his name, followed by Suarez (255) and Van Persie (250) and is priced up at £8.8m.

Of the defenders, Vincent Kompany has the highest price tag of £8m having helped Manchester City keep a Premier League high of 18 clean sheets last season.

Patrice Evra, Branislav Ivanovic and Leighton Baines are all also considered highly after each finding the net several times last season.

City stopper Joe Hart is naturally rated the top goalkeeper following his impressive collection of clean sheets, followed by David de Gea, Petr Cech and Wojciech Szczesny.

Of the early summer signings, Liverpool's new forward Iago Aspas is considered the most valuable at £8.5m having netted 12 times for Celta Vigo in La Liga last season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea's Andre Schurrle (£8m), City duo Jesus Navas (£7.6m) and Fernandinho (£7m) and Norwich's Ricky van Wolfswinkel (£7.5m) are also expected to make significant impacts in their debut Premier League campaigns.

The newly promoted sides' new players are predominantly handed modest price tags, with the Championship's leading scorer from last season, Glenn Murray, priced up at £7m.
