The deadline for EPL Fantasy Week 1 is Saturday at 9.45pm

The clock is ticking on your plans to take the 2013-14 Premier League season by storm, with Goal's EPL Fantasy game offering the toughest challenge around

The EPL Fantasy deadline for Week 1 is 9.45pm (AEST) on Saturday, meaning you've got less than three days to sign up and finalise your team.

With a budget of £100,000,000 and 15 spots in your squad to fill, it's time to decide which players will get the job done for you.

Is Manchester United's star striker Robin van Persie worth his hefty price-tag? Or should you snap up new Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado?

Swansea's goal-machine Michu is sure to get points from midfield, but Crystal Palace's Aussie Mile Jedinak could prove to be a bargain buy.

A mixture of silk and steel is required at the back - Everton fullback Leighton Baines and his Chelsea counterpart Ashley Cole will not come cheap, but are sure to provide plenty of value from their rampaging forward runs.

And a reliable presence between the sticks is a must, but which goalkeeper to opt for? Mark Schwarzer is unlikely to see much game-time ahead of Petr Cech at Stamford Bridge, while Allan McGregor and Julian Speroni may find themselves overworked for newly promoted Hull City and Crystal Palace respectively.
