Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Watford, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton.

🌟 José Holebas WAT, £4.7m

Two assists in the 2-1 win over Spurs continued a run that sees him behind only Marcos Alonso and Sadio Mané in terms of FPL points so far this season.

After the international break Watford will aim to continue their 100 percent record by winning at home to Man Utd, which is by no means far-fetched.

How long they can keep it going for remains to be seen, but Holebas carries an attacking threat that could translate into a steady supply of points at a cheap price.

🌟 Boly/Bennett WOL, £4.5m/£4m

Wolves are looking much tighter at the back and have a tasty looking home game against out-of-sorts Burnley up next.

If you’re willing to pay a bit extra for the added goal threat from set pieces then Willy Boly is your man, but Ryan Bennett looks a real bargain at £4m.

🌟 Lucas Digne EVE, £5m

Everton’s new left-back looks to have a wicked cross on him, setting up headed goals for Dominic Calvert-Lewin in each of his first two games.

While a clean sheet continues to elude the Toffees, their next game is at home to a West Ham side that’s yet to pick up a point.
