Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 22: Defenders

Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 22 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defensive line after consulting this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 22 defenders round-up.

Recommended selections this week include players from Chelsea, Everton, Burnley, Leicester, Stoke and West Ham.


Kurt Zouma, Chelsea – £4.6m

Replaced Gary Cahill following the 5-3 defeat at Spurs and played his part in keeping a clean sheet against Newcastle, so expect him to start again at Swansea on Saturday.

Leighton Baines, Everton – £7.1m

Two assists in his last three games suggest that Baines is returning to form along with his resurgent Toffees side, who play at home to low-scoring West Brom in Monday night’s fixture.

Aaron Cresswell, West Ham – £5.6m

The Hammers are at home to a Hull side that doesn’t score many away from home, and Cresswell has shown this season that he’s got an assist or two in him.

Kieran Trippier, Burnley – £4.8m

Speaking of full-backs with an assist or two in them, how about Trippier? With the Clarets at home to Crystal Palace, he looks a decent bet.

Marcin Wasilewski, Leicester – £3.9m

Leicester have three 1-0 wins from their last four games going into Saturday’s visit of Stoke, although the Potters will be looking to avenge their 0-1 defeat in the corresponding fixture earlier this season. With that in mind…

Geoff Cameron, Stoke – £4.2m

Er, see above. Basically, Leicester v Stoke could easily finish 1-0 either way.
