Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5: Defenders
- By Football Burp
Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended selections this week include players from Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Manchester City, Stoke City and Manchester United.
Ben Davies, TOT – £5.6m
Now the FPL’s highest points-scoring defender after two assists in the 3-0 win at Everton. Judging by his roving performance, he could run riot at home to former club Swansea.
Jamaal Lascelles, NEW – £4.5m
Stole the show with the winning goal and a superb clearance in the 1-0 win at Swansea – next up, he’s at home to Stoke.
Benjamin Mendy, MCI – £6.5m
Marked his home debut with an assist an 10 points in the 5-0 win over Liverpool. He’s expensive, but many more performances like that and he could make himself essential nonetheless.
Kurt Zouma, STK – £5.5m
Getting regular games in a decent-looking Stoke side, albeit a trip to Newcastle might prove to be a tricky fixture.
Victor Lindelöf, MUN – £5.1m
Worth a sneaky punt after Phil Jones’s calamitous performance at Stoke? It’s far from a given but, if picked, Lindelöf could provide a great return for the reduced price. Just don’t bank on it…
Good luck and happy selecting!
