The 2018/19 season of the Premier League was a roller-coaster ride as the competition in England's top-tier was as good as it's ever been. Liverpool and Manchester City were up for it right from the get-go, with the Cityzens sealing their second consecutive title by one point on the final match-day of the season.

Liverpool, Spurs, and Chelsea completed the top-four and the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United had disappointing domestic seasons, once again finishing outside the Champions League spots.

As far as Fantasy Premier League is concerned, the season was exciting, to say the least. Three of the main chips, namely wildcard, triple captain and bench boost were retained and the all-out attack option was replaced by a new chip called a free hit.

Free Hit in many ways is like applying your wildcard for a specific game week, meaning you are allowed unlimited transfers for any game-week of your choice and the original team is restored following the completion of that week.

Manchester City and Liverpool were the standout teams in the 2018/19 season and the FPL leader-board was largely dominated by players from these two sides.

On that note, let's look at the highest scoring XI from the 2018/19 season.

#1 Alisson Becker

Alisson Becker takes his place between the sticks. In an astonishing debut season for the Reds after joining for a world record fee at the time, the Brazilian wasted no time in making an impact at the club, racking up a staggering 21 clean sheets and registering 176 points.

The Brazilian won the Copa America for his country and is expected to make a massive impact for Liverpool again this season.

Andy Robertson was not only the best left-back in the country, but his performances have also ensured that he's among the very best in the business.

The Scotsman enjoyed a highly successful season on the left flank, racking up a season-high tally of 213 FPL points and also went on to register 11 assists, one shy of teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

#4 Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk had been absolutely dominant right throughout the season and has transformed Liverpool's defense into one of the meanest back-lines in world football.

The Dutchman's performances saw him being crowned the PFA Player of the Year and in doing so, he became the first defender since John Terry in 2005 to win the accolade. Van Dijk featured in every Premier League game for Liverpool, registering 208 points.

#5 Raheem Sterling

Ryan Fraser was one of the breakthrough stars of the 2018/19 season, scoring 7 goals and registering 14 assists for Eddie Howe's Bournemouth side.

He was the surprise package of the FPL season and started the season as a differential budget option and finished the season with an impressive 181 points.

#9 Gylfi Sigurdsson

Eden Hazard was the only player in the Premier League to register double figures in goals and assists last season and despite his heroics, he's been excluded from his list as his move to Real Madrid means he will be unavailable for the forthcoming season of FPL.

Owing to Hazard's omission, Sigurdsson makes they list having been Everton's standout performer in the center of the park and the Icelandic international amassed 182 points last season.

#10 Sergio Aguero

The Argentinian attacker has been exhibiting staggering levels of consistency in his time in England and enjoyed another successful season as he spearheaded Manchester City to the Premier League title.

Whilst Aguero lead Manchester City's title charge, Aubameyang scored 22 league goals as he shared the golden-boot with the Liverpool duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

The Gabonese front-man scored goals freely, tallying 205 FPL points and despite his heroics, Arsenal missed out on a place in the top-four.

The team (3-5-2): Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Raheem Sterling, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Ryan Fraser; Sergio Aguero, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
