Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 31+ defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester United, Leicester City and Newcastle United.
🌟 Matt Doherty WOL, £6.3m
He’s got a goal and three assist in his last four games, while Wolves have five clean sheets out of six – it’s looking good going into the home game against struggling Bournemouth.
🌟 Harry Maguire MUN, £5.3m
Man Utd’s defence is looking tight, with only two goals conceded in six games going into the home match against low-scoring Sheffield United.
Maguire is yet so really get going as a threat from set pieces at Man Utd, but it could happen eventually – and the Red Devils have a good run of fixtures ahead.
🌟 Ben Chilwell LEI, £5.5m
Scored a cracking goal in the 1-1 draw at Watford and has a decent fixture list ahead, starting at home to Brighton on Tuesday.
🌟 Lascelles/Ritchie NEW, £4.3m/£5.5m
Newcastle’s defence looks much stronger with Jamaal Lascelles starting, and they’re going into a relatively favourable run of matches starting at home to Aston Villa on Wednesday.
If you’ve got a bit more money in the bank, Matt Ritchie could be a great out-of-position bet having returned a goal, assist and 18 points against Sheffield United.
