Strengthen your defence with this Fantasy Premier League tips Gameweek 8 defenders round-up and unlock your fantasy football potential.
Recommended defender picks for this Gameweek include players from Chelsea, Arsenal, West Ham United and Southampton.
🌟 Chilwell/Zouma CHE, £5.9m/£5.2m
Chelsea have kept three clean sheets out of three with their new goalkeeper, making attractive propositions of their defenders who also get attacking returns.
Ben Chilwell gets forward a lot and looks the likelier source of goals and assists over the course of the season.
But Kurt Zouma has been posing such a threat from set pieces that it’s not accident he’s already scored three Premier League goals.
It’s unlikely he’ll keep scoring at the same rate, but that doesn’t mean he won’t keep weighing in with more than his fair share.
Next up for Frank Lampard’s Blues, a home fixture against struggling Sheffield United.
🌟 Héctor Bellerín ARS, £5m
As well as being part of an Arsenal defence that looks one of the tightest in the division, Bellerín has three assists in four games going into the home match against Aston Villa.
🌟 Vladimir Coufal WHU, £4.5m
Has two assists already for a competitive-looking West Ham, who have some easier games ahead following a tough start – they’re at home to Fulham on Saturday.
🌟 Kyle Walker-Peters SOU, £4.5m
Southampton host Newcastle having won both of their last two home matches 2-0, against West Brom and Everton.
