VIDEO: American singer picks Fantasy Premier League team based on the players’ names

Suggestive names prove popular.

American singer Jackie Hollywood picked a Fantasy Premier League side based solely on how much she liked various players’ names.

Hollywood, also a radio presenter, picked the team on her boyfriend’s insistence and came up with a selection criteria to circumnavigate her lack of knowledge on the subject.

Suggestive names or those associated with food proved particularly popular, with Virgil van Dijk and Adama Traoré falling into the former category.

It's better than my team ffs😭

Some of the more tenuous inclusions include Mo Salah on the basis that his name sounds a bit like ‘salad’, which of course is good for you.
