Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 29 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Liverpool, Leicester City and Newcastle United.
🌟 Trent Alexander-Arnold LIV, £5.3m each
Suspicions that Liverpool look much better with him in the team appeared to be confirmed by his three-assist haul in the 5-0 win over Watford.
Fitness pending, you’d have to imagine he’s an obvious starter for the Reds’ remaining ten league games, starting with Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Everton.
Also of significance is that Liverpool play in Gameweeks 31 and 33 – away to Fulham and Southampton respectively – when other teams won’t due to the FA Cup.
If you’ve still got all your chips, you could work towards having a decent team to field in GW31 then use your Free Hit for GW32, when several teams will play twice (even if this hasn’t been officially confirmed).
Your GW31 squad will reappear for GW33, when most of the same teams will have games, after which you can Wildcard in GW34 ahead of the Double Gameweek in 35.
🌟 Ricardo Pereira LEI, £5.4m
Leicester could experience ‘new manager bounce’ under Brendan Rodgers, and their upcoming matches – including fixtures in Gameweeks 31 and 33 – look good
This weekend they go to a Watford side that’s not at their best at home, then they’ve got Fulham (H), Burnley (a), Bournemouth (H), Huddersfield (a), Newcastle (H).
🌟 Fabian Schär NEW, £4.7m
He has three goals, three clean sheets and an assist in six games going into the trip to West Ham, which is followed by a home match against Everton.
Newcastle go to Bournemouth in the disrupted GW31, but they’ll only play in GW33 if Crystal Palace lose to Watford in the next round of the FA Cup.
