Is now the time to sell Leicester City defenders?

Having recorded just one clean sheet in seven league matches, Leicester City defenders are not quite the attractive options they were during their autumnal purple patch.

Three of the Foxes’ first-choice backline are indeed among the top five most-sold Fantasy Premier League defenders of Gameweek 23 at the time of writing.

Jonny Evans (£5.3m) is the only Leicester defender to have registered an attacking return over the last seven Gameweeks, meanwhile, and the loss of key midfielder Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) to injury would seem to further dent the clean sheet prospects of Brendan Rodgers’ side.

With some Fantasy managers already losing faith, are we rushing to judgement about the Foxes’ defence?

In this article, we look at some of the key underlying data in our Members Area to see if Leicester’s wider defensive numbers have dipped during their recent run.

      nice id probably go mahrez over sterling but thats only for a week anyway. You probably do need an extra mid or attacker somehow, probably try and stretch for sarr

      Hey this week my Bench feels very strong, maybe so strong that I want to use a bench boost.
      Henderson (Pope)
      Doherty, TAA, Soyuncu,(Aurier, Lundstram)
      Grealish, De Bruyne, Mane, Sarr (Cantwell)
      Ings, Abraham, Rashfordinj
      would you change any of the (benched) players to starters or would you play bench boost this week?

      Next week the obvious question, I have a decent chunk in bank. Doherty>Robertson, De Bruyne> Salah or Abraham(his fixtures are awful)> Firminho

      Anyone on here not going for the LIV triple (or WHU)?

      It's a leading question with a follow-up ... Do you see better value elsewhere?
