Strengthen your defensive line after consulting this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8 defenders round-up.
Recommended selections this week include players from Watford, Arsenal, Man City, West Ham and West Brom.
Allan-Roméo Nyom/Craig Cathcart, Watford – both £4.5m
The Hornets go to fellow newly promoted side Bournemouth boasting one of the top division’s best defensive records, even after their 0-1 defeat to Crystal Palace.
Craig Dawson, West Brom – £5m
The Baggies play away to a Crystal Palace side that’s not scored a goal from open play in 3 games, and Dawson’s a threat from set pieces, as evidenced by his goal against Everton on Monday night.
Aleksandar Kolarov, Man City – £6.1m
He may have got back-to-back scores of 0, but Kolarov could conceivably be back to his double-digit best at home to Newcastle on Saturday.
Nacho Monreal, Arsenal – £5.5m
2 assists in the 5-2 win at Leicester underlined the attacking contribution Monreal can add to the Gunners’ ability to keep regular clean sheets, although table-toppers Man Utd are next up to the Emirates.
Aaron Cresswell, West Ham – £5.6m
After wins at Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City with only one goal conceded in those three games, the Hammers are theoretically in with a decent shout of keeping a clean sheet at struggling Sunderland. Theoretically.
Russell Martin, Norwich – £4.6m
With three goals to his name already this season, who’d best against him nabbing another at home to a leaky Leicester side?
Good luck and happy selecting!
