EPL Fantasy Football: Best overall, home and away teams

I've refined the R code to pick the best fantasy soccer team by using more granular player performance data (available publicly). Here are the best overall, home and away teams. 

The constraints used are: 

1) Number of goalkeepers = 1
2) Number of defenders = 4
3) Number of mid fielders = 3
4) Number of strikers = 3
5) Total team cost = 50 GBP
6) Maximum number of players from a team = 2 (most fantasy soccer sites use this)
