Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 2 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this gameweek include players from Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Everton, Crystal Palace and Cardiff City.
🌟 Benjamin Mendy MCI, £6m
Got two assists in the 2-0 win at Arsenal, earning 15 points in the process, and this weekend’s home game against Huddersfield looks a banker for City.
🌟 Luke Shaw MUN, £5m
Grabbed his chance to cement a first team spot with a fine performance and goal against Leicester, and he’s a cheap way into Man Utd’s defence if he continues.
Next up, a trip to a Brighton side that lost 2-0 at Watford on opening day.
🌟 Trent Alexander-Arnold LIV, £5m
Started the 4-0 win over West Ham ahead of Nathaniel Clyne and he looks like he’ll take his fair share of set pieces. A tough trip to Crystal Palace awaits, but he’s potentially a bargain.
🌟 Coleman/Mina EVE, £5.5m each
Two defenders with goal-scoring potential play at home to low-scoring Southampton this weekend, although it remains to be seen if Yerry Mina will be ready, Séamus Coleman should be available.
🌟 Aaron Wan-Bissaka CRY, £4m
Although Crystal Palace face Liverpool next, it still makes sense to bring in this bargain before his price starts to rise.
And after his assist and 12-point showing in the 2-0 win at Fulham, rise it will.
🌟 Lee Peltier CAR, £4m
Another £4m starter, Peltier might have a better chance of keeping a clean sheet at home to Newcastle than he and his team-mates did away to Bournemouth.
