Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8: Defenders
- By Football Burp
Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended selections this week include players from Arsenal, Bournemouth and Southampton.
Laurent Koscielny, ARS – £6.1m
Scored his second of the season – albeit controversially – to win the game at Burnley, putting him top of the points pile for FPL defenders.
He may not be cheap, but he’s cheaper than £6.5m team-mate Héctor Bellerín. Next up they’re at home to Swansea, who’ve just sacked their manager.
Adam Smith, BOU – £4.6m
Bournemouth look solid at home, while Smith has potential for attacking contributions, so he could feasibly score points at both ends of the pitch at home to Hull.
Any first-choice Southampton defender
Revitalised Saints have kept three clean sheets in a row, five including the Europa League, so a home match against Burnley looks enticing.
Good luck and happy selecting!
