Our Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 10 defenders round-up is here to help all your fantasy football fantasies come to fruition!

Although our tips are based on FPL player prices, the principles should apply more or less across the board – so even if you’re playing fantasy football at Sky Sports, the Telegraph, the Mirror or wherever, you’re still advised to stick around.


Right, let’s do this thing…

Calum Chambers/Nacho Monreal, Arsenal – £4.6m/£4.9m

Both youngsters played in the 2-0 win at Sunderland and could reasonably be backed to keep another clean sheet at home to Burnley on Saturday.

If Kieran Gibbs fails to recover from injury in time then £4.4m Héctor Bellerín should also start.

Aaron Cresswell, West Ham United – £5.4m

As well as West Ham have been playing, we wouldn’t necessarily back them for a clean sheet at Stoke this weekend – however, with back-to-back assists, don’t be surprised to see full-back Cresswell contribute something at the other end of the pitch.

Who knows? If you’re really lucky, he might give you both. In any case, West Ham’s relatively favourable upcoming fixtures could make him great value at that price.

James Chester/Alex Bruce, Hull City – £4.4m/£3.9m

Two regulars from last season back in the side and playing well, contributing to a hard-fought clean sheet at Anfield last time out.

This weekend sees Hull welcome high-flying Southampton to the KC Stadium, a tough game but one they weren’t fear having emerged unbeaten from back-to-back trips to Arsenal and Liverpool.

Brede Hangeland, Crystal Palace – £4.9m

Has scored twice in his four appearances so far this season, and if he starts Monday night’s game at home to struggling Sunderland then a clean sheet is hardly beyond the realms of possibility.

Filipe Luís, Chelsea – £5.4m

Chelsea are at home to QPR, whose only goal in four away games this season was Charlie Austin’s wonder strike at Southampton.

With César Azpilicueta suspended, Luís should deputise at left-back and is considerably cheaper than the players he’ll be forming a back four alongside.

Be warned, though – he’ll have to perform outstandingly well in order to retain his place once established Mourinho darling Azpilicueta returns.

Good luck and happy selecting!
