Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 4 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this gameweek include players from Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton.
🌟 Marcos Alonso CHE, £6.7m
He’s currently the overall top-scoring player in FPL, with a remarkable run of 11, 13 and 11 from his opening three games.
It’s no coincidence – he’s one of Chelsea’s key attacking outlets, and he’s likely to be so again for Saturday’s home game against Bournemouth.
🌟 Monreal/Bellerín ARS, £5.5m each
Both Nacho Monreal and Héctor Bellerín demonstrated their potential for attacking returns in the 3-1 win over West Ham, with a goal and assist respectively.
Arsenal may be yet to keep a clean sheet, but on Sunday they go to a Cardiff side that is yet to score in this season’s Premier League.
🌟 Aymeric Laporte MCI, £5.5m
Benjamin Mendy is the obvious Man City pick but if you can’t afford him then Laporte offers a cheaper alternative, albeit with less attacking threat.
Nevertheless, he scored in the 1-1 draw at Wolves and his 5 goals for Athletic Bilbao in 2015-16 show he has past form for threatening from set pieces.
This weekend, City are at home to low-scoring Newcastle.
🌟 Zouma/Holgate EVE, £5m/£4.5m
On-loan Kurt Zouma looks likely to replace the injured Michael Keane for the home game against low-scoring Huddersfield, with Mason Holgate his likely partner.
They could well form Everton’s centre-back partnership for the foreseeable future, given the apparent severity of Keane’s injury and the continuing absence of Yerry Mina.
