Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1: Defenders

Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up

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!
