Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1: Defenders
- By Football Burp
Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended selections this week include players from West Bromwich Albion, Southampton, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Craig Dawson, WBA – £5m
He’s recovered from a knock to play at home to Bournemouth, he gets goals from set pieces and Tony Pulis sides tend to start seasons strongly defensively.
Cédric Soares, SOU – £5m
Southampton have a distinctly favourable set of opening fixtures, getting underway with home games against Swansea and West Ham.
James Milner, LIV – £6.5m
Listed as a defender this season, that means Milner will get an extra point if he scores a penalty at Watford – and, of course, four points for a clean sheet.
Kieran Trippier, TOT – £5.5m
If he recovers from a knock then Tottenham’s new first-choice right-back has the potential for assists away to newly promoted Newcastle.
Good luck and happy selecting!
