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.

        A lot of 1st teamers missing a lot of games.

          The main team has barely been affected by injuries. Liverpool have been extremely fortunate

      There was a huge study in Italy about this. From all the factors influencing injuries for a club, the one with most causality is the trainer. Not the age, not the weight, height etc.

      So well done to Klop. You remember people being inured all the time for Arsenal? Fabregas I.e.? For Chelsea he was super fit and older...

      You're making fellow Liverpool fans look bad, every side has injuries and if you haven't noticed we're doing quite well so far, this is unnecessary!

      From a pure FPL point of view it takes a decision out of my hands and leaves me with an easy way to get 3rd Liverpool player.

      Not ideal, but I was thinking about it anyway

    Last 3 days i was angry for kneejerk transfer Rashford & Alli > Salah & Maupay (-4, exact funds before Alli's drop on sunday) ...now it looks a bit better, just a bit

  30. TeddiPonza
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Current team:

    Fabianski Button
    TAA Soy Lundy Kelly Rico
    Salah KdB Martial Grealish Hayden
    Vardy Rash Jimi

    2FT and 1,6m in bank.

    The original plan was to do Martial and Rash to DCL and Mane this week but Fabianski injury is making that decision more difficult. Would you stick with it and play without goalkeeper this week and address Fabianski situation next week or do something else?

    Thanks.
