Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2: Defenders
- By Football Burp
Strengthen your defensive line after consulting this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended selections this week include players from West Brom, Sunderland, Man Utd and Swansea.
Any first-choice WBA defender
Tony Pulis sides tend to start seasons with a few clean sheets, so no surprise to see West Brom win 1-0 at Crystal Palace.
Next up they’re home to Everton, a fixture in which £5m Craig Dawson scored one of his 5 goals last season.
At £4.5m apiece, Jonny Evans, Gareth McAuley and Jonas Olsson offer slightly less goal threat but plenty of value.
Patrick van Aanholt, SUN – £5m
David Moyes’s men looked solid enough in the 2-1 defeat at Man City to suggest clean sheet potential at home to Middlesbrough.
With his extra attacking threat, van Aanholt is the obvious choice from Sunderland.
Antonio Valencia, MUN – £5.5m
Impressed as a right-back in the 3-1 win at Burnley and should continue at home to Southampton.
He bombs forward to good effect and crosses well, so he should have a few assists in him.
Jordi Amat/Stephen Kingsley, SWA – £4m
Both started the 1-0 win at Burnley and should do so again for the home game against Hull.
Good luck and happy selecting!
