Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Leeds United, Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

🌟 Ezgjan Alioski LEE, £4.5m

Though his long-term starting place may be in doubt, he’s doing the business for now – he’s scored twice in the last four games, with two clean sheets.

A trip to Spurs next up may not look good on paper, but Leeds should be absolutely flying after their 5-0 win at West Brom.

And they’ve got a Double Gameweek of home fixtures against Brighton and Southampton to come in Gameweek 19.

🌟 Rob Holding ARS, £4.4m

Arsenal look to be turning a corner, and next up they go to low-scoring West Brom before back-to-back home matches against Crystal Palace and Newcastle.

🌟 Tyrick Mitchell CRY, £3.9m

Returned to the side for the 1-1 draw with Leicester, which stopped the rot for Palace, so he may well keep his place for the visit of Sheffield Utd.
