Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 5 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Liverpool, West Ham United and Everton.
🌟 Trent Alexander-Arnold LIV, £7m
An obvious choice, perhaps, but despite his flurry of assists at the end of last season there were still those who preferred his team-mates Andrew Robertson and Virgil van Dijk.
With three assists from his first four matches this time around, it’s clear he is still very much the Liverpool defender with most potential for attacking returns.
🌟 Arthur Masuaku WHU, £4.5m
He’s played 90 minutes in each of West Ham’s recent back-to-back wins and provided an assist for Sébastien Haller in the 2-0 victory over Norwich last time out.
With a focal point like Haller to now aim for, Masuaku’s assist-making might not end there.
🌟 Lucas Digne EVE, £6.1m
Speaking of assists, Everton’s Digne still looks a good bet on that front – he has two in four games, as well as scoring a peach of a free kick in the League Cup at Lincoln.
