Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 1 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Liverpool, Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

🌟 Andrew Robertson LIV, £7m

Trent Alexander-Arnold is the obvious pick, but left-back Robertson ended last season in strong form and showed plenty of attacking threat in the Community Shield against Arsenal.

First up for champions Liverpool, a potentially tricky home game against newly promoted Leeds.

🌟 Matt Doherty TOT, £6m

A popular fantasy football asset from his time at Wolves and he has a good run of fixtures to start off his Spurs career, beginning at home to Everton.

🌟 Kyle Walker-Peters SOU, £4.5m

An attacking right-back for a Southampton side that has impressed this year, and who start away to Crystal Palace in a fixture they won 2-0 last time around.

🌟 Rúben Vinagre WOL, £4.5m

Looks set to start at left wing-back for defensively solid Wolves in the absence of the injured Jonny, but their opening match away to Sheffield Utd is a tough one to call.
