Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 28 defenders round-up

Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 28 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.

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

🌟 Matt Doherty WOL, £5.4m

Doherty has strong potential for points at both ends of the pitch in games away to Huddersfield and away to Cardiff this week, but be warned they then blank in GW31.

It’s time to work out a strategy for the forthcoming fixture disruption – you could hold onto Wolves assets in anticipation of their GW32 double, but then they again don’t play in 33.

Plan for how to maximise your remaining chips to navigate these hurdles, because the rewards could be great for those who get it right.

🌟 Pereira/Chilwell LEI, £5.4m/£5m

Leicester may be managerless as things stand, but their upcoming matches – which include fixtures in Gameweeks 31 and 33 – look hard to resist all the same.

Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell both like to get forward and could keep a clean sheet or two in a run that takes in Brighton (H), Watford (a), Fulham (H), Burnley (a), Bournemouth (H), Huddersfield (a), Newcastle (H).

🌟 Trent Alexander-Arnold LIV, £5.2m each

Although he didn’t play against Man Utd, Jürgen Klopp explicitly stated he was holding him back with forthcoming games in mind.

As such, the likelihood is he will start at home to Watford on Wednesday then at Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

Potentially of great importance also is that Liverpool play in Gameweeks 31 and 33 – away to relegation-battling Fulham and Southampton respectively.
