The best FPL defenders for a Gameweek 4 Wildcard

Having already assessed the best goalkeepers on offer, our position-by-position analysis of the stand-out Fantasy Premier League (FPL) options for a Gameweek 4 Wildcard continues as we take a look at the defenders.

All stats taken from this article are from our Premium Members Area.

BEST PREMIUM DEFENDERS 

Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) has already claimed 22 FPL points in the opening three Gameweeks, via two clean sheets, an assist and five bonus points. His 15 chances created is at least five more than any other defender on offer, while his 1.73 expected assists (xA) ranks top amongst all players in 2021/22.

With Leeds United (a), Crystal Palace (h) and Brentford (a) up next, there seems little reason to go without him on a Wildcard, despite the temptation to move funds further forward. 

Jurgen Klopp’s adjustment to his positioning, along with Harvey Elliot’s (£5.5m) movement into wider areas, is another intriguing factor to monitor in the coming weeks, as it allows Alexander-Arnold to invert more in the final-third.

Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) offer cheaper routes into the Reds backline, while at champions Manchester City, Ruben Dias (£6.0m) and Joao Cancelo (£6.0m) have completed 90 minutes in all three Premier League matches so far. 

The duo have helped Pep Guardiola’s side keep back-to-back clean sheets against Norwich City and Arsenal, and despite some trickier immediate fixtures, take on Southampton (h), Burnley (h), Brighton and Hove Albion (a) and Crystal Palace (h) before the end of October.

Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) also deserves a mention, having performed as both a wing-back and centre-half under Thomas Tuchel this season. However, with cheaper alternatives currently on offer in the Blues backline, his ownership still sits at just 4.1%.

BEST MID-PRICE DEFENDERS 

Manchester United’s first-choice backline – Aaron Wan-BissakaRaphael VaraneHarry Maguire and Luke Shaw – are all available at £5.5m, though it is surely the latter who carries the most FPL potential.

Despite seeing just under 300k transfers out this round, Shaw is still the most widely held defender in the game with 47% ownership. Though he hasn’t quite hit his 2020/21 heights so far, he still ranks amongst the top five defenders for chances created and with his crossing ability, paired with corner-taking duties, can surely benefit from the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m). It’s also worth noting that three of United’s next four matches are at Old Trafford. Perhaps a little patience is required here, then?

Chelsea undoubtedly boast one of the meanest defences in Europe, with several mid-price options on offer. Antonio Rudiger (£5.5m) is perhaps the most secure, though the explosive nature of Reece James (£5.6m) once back from suspension may swing it for some. The England international returned 18 FPL points in Gameweek 2 alone and ranks second amongst all defenders for xA per 90 minutes this season. 

Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) are other options, but with Thiago Silva (£5.4m) and Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) lurking, none are immune to rotation. Gameweek 7 has been touted as the ideal time to find space for a Chelsea asset as the fixtures turn significantly for the better, though regardless of opposition, they seem capable of shutting teams out.

Elsewhere, Wolverhampton Wanderers are rightly gaining plenty of Fantasy attention ahead of their fixture swing, which sees them take on Watford (a), Brentford (h), Southampton (a) and Newcastle United (h) in the coming weeks. Despite losing 1-0 in each of their opening three matches, Bruno Lage’s side have faced tough opponents in Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Man Utd. During that time, they have conceded just 27 shots, which is second only to the 15 of Man City, while according to expected goals (xG), only three teams have been better defensively:

Nelson Semedo (£4.9m) is a naturally more conservative wing-back, but in the current back-three set-up, is finding himself in plenty of good attacking positions, while team-mate Romain Saiss (£5.0m) was perhaps a little unfortunate not to score against Man Utd in Gameweek 3.

At Liverpool, Joel Matip (£5.0m) offers a cheap route into Jurgen Klopp’s backline, having re-established himself in the starting XI. It’s also worth noting that he’s amassed seven goal attempts in the box already this season. Amongst all defenders, only Shane Duffy (£4.2m) has more.

Meanwhile, Lucas Digne (£5.4m) could thrive in the coming weeks with Burnley (h), Aston Villa (a) and Norwich City (h) up next. Everton have made a promising start under Rafael Benitez and have conceded just 17 shots in the box so far – only the Manchester clubs have given up fewer. Paired with Digne’s crossing ability, he looks like the stand-out option in the Toffees defence, though Michael Keane (£5.0m) and Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) are also available at cheaper prices.

Arsenal added another defender to the ranks on transfer deadline day, with the signing of Takehiro Tomiyasu (£4.5m). The Gunners have been really poor so far this campaign, but the new arrivals ability to perform as a defensive minded right-back is interesting. That could mean Kieran Tierney (£4.9m) on the opposite flank is given more license to push up, safe in the knowledge that the Japanese defender can tuck in to form a back-three. It’s also worth noting that Mikel Arteta’s side have good fixtures right through until Gameweek 11 (see below), and as Pro Pundit Lateriser said in his recent column, FPL is not about what has happened but rather anticipating what will happen in the future. Maybe a punt on the Arsenal man isn’t such a bad idea, then?

Staying in London, Tottenham Hotspur are the only team yet to concede a goal this season, with Sergio Reguilon (£5.2m) picking up bonus in two of Spurs’ three matches so far, while at West Ham, Aaron Cresswell (£5.5m), Vladimir Coufal (£5.0m) and new signing Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) all have the potential to do well. The latter’s impact was discussed in our Moving Target article, but with the Hammers UEFA Europa League campaign kicking off soon, many will be happy to look elsewhere.

At Man City, Aymeric Laporte (£5.5m), John Stones (£5.3m) and Kyle Walker (£5.5m) are cheaper alternatives to Dias and Cancelo, though in the case of the centre-halves, we may need a few more weeks before we know exactly who Guardiola sees as his first-choice pairing.

Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) and new signing Marc Cucurella (£5.0m) at Brighton can provide value with trips to Brentford, Crystal Palace and Norwich City coming up, though there are perhaps better options for those building Wildcard teams this week, especially with cheaper alternatives available at Albion.

BEST BUDGET DEFENDERS

The hunt for cheaper defenders is always a big part of building a Wildcard squad, such is their importance to free up cash for the premium picks. And fortunately for FPL managers, there are an interesting batch of options worth exploring.

At Spurs, Eric Dier (£4.6m) is perhaps the best budget option, with Davinson Sanchez (£4.5m) out of Gameweek 4 and new signing Emerson Royal (£5.0m) possibly impacting Japhet Tanganga’s (£4.5m) minutes further down the line.

Conor Coady (£4.5m) and Marcal (£4.5m) offer cheaper alternatives at Wolves, while it’s also worth noting that Luke Ayling (£4.5m), who has already scored this season, and Diego Llorente (£4.5m) have promising schedules from Gameweek 5 onwards. Ben White (£4.4m) and Joel Veltman (£4.4m) could also be worth a look.

Brentford have started well, with Pontus Jansson (£4.6m), Ethan Pinnock (£4.6m) and Rico Henry (£4.5m) all impressing, though the fact David Raya (£4.6m) is available at the same price suggests he is probably the best route into Thomas Frank’s defensive set-up. Another newly promoted side, Watford, certainly have the fixtures in place to kick on, with centre-back’s William Troost-Ekong (£4.5m) and Francisco Sierralta (£4.4m) making their first starts together as a defensive pairing in Gameweek 3.

That leaves us with the bargain-bin enablers.

With Kostas Tsimikas (£4.2m) losing his place to Robertson in Gameweek 3, Tino Livramento (£4.1m) looks like an excellent alternative at Southampton. He ranks in the top 10 defenders for xA so far this season, while Man Utd loanee Brandon Williams (£4.0m) is another nice option who may benefit from the arrival of Ozan Kabak (£4.5m).

There is also Duffy, who we touched on earlier, and Daniel Amartey (£4.1m), though it is worth noting that both players have benefitted from injuries to team-mates at their respective clubs and may be on borrowed time. However, Duffy has certainly impressed, which suggests he is perhaps the more likely of the two retain his place.

    Any further update on Firminho injury yet?

    Jota or Torres?

        Having same dilemma. Consensus of most news stories seems to be Bobby is out for a couple of weeks.

        I doubt anyone has Martinez at this stage but am I reading this right that he will have to remain in Brazil for 14 days in quarantine and then another 10 days once he reaches the UK?

      C. Kane

      1. Reinhold

      2. Esalman
        • 11 Years

        B seems most likely.

          6 is still B. 3/4 is probably A

      On WC

      Who you have out of Williams or Livarmento

      Any ideas would be welcomed

        Liv, I’d expect more cs and attacking returns.

        1. Kimmich

          This.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        If I was on WC I'd have both.

        A bench of those 2 plus Gilmour gives enough emergency cover but loads of money on starting 11

        Yeah I was just about to comment something similar. Lukaku will be pushing to take them now

      Sanchez
      TAA shaw veltman
      Salah Bruno Benrahma raphina
      Ings Antonio dcl

      Subs foster bissouma tsim manquilo

      In my drunken madness last night I did ings, Bruno and tsim to ronaldo, jota and livramento for -8. Best to take the -8 hit or play wc and make some other changes?

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Not bad transfers long term. They are not your problem.

      2. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 12 days ago

        A bad case of Ronaldo fever.
        Depends if DCL is fit now & you are good with the -8 still
        Doubts over Veltman starting as well

      3. Gingerman
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Not bad transfers, I'd take the hit.

      4. Ooh Ah Cantona
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Have another drink, then you can -8 them back in

      5. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 12 days ago

        Torres and Jota - too much a rotation risk to have both?

        How viable an option is Gray? Started well, so surely no risk of rotation there?

        1. Kimmich
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I think in the short term it’s viable to hold both. I’d look to move on Jota in 3 or so weeks if Firmino is a short term injury.

          For 7m I’d take 3/4 games for Torres as Citys number 9

        2. Tarby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I think it's ok to have both. Jota will always get off the bench at the very worst, and as he can genuinely play across the entire front line he'll start most games I think.

          With the 4m options in defence can have a very cheap bench which would get a couple of points if they got no game time.

          Greenwood is another good option at similar price too, although when Rashford is back coupled with the arrival of Ronaldo he's probably more likely to have rotation issues.

      6. Reinhold
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I am toying more and more with the idea of a GW5 wildcard. It seems to me to have some central added benefits over the GW4 WC, whilst not sacrificing too much. Hear me out here:

        - Several popular players are probably a sell on a WC, but have a good fixture this GW. Greenwood is an obvious one. Son maybe another. Cheapies like Toney and even Dennis too.
        - West ham have a good fixture now, but then Europa kicks in.
        - Leeds fixture turn
        - You get Ronaldo without a hit, and there is zero fear he doesn't start (I wouldn't get Lukaku yet anyway, and enough time to get him before 7)
        - You get to see how Man City line up in the CL, before the home match against Southampton
        - You get to see another match of Wolves, to assess the potential everyone is talking about.
        - Simply another week of info

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Gw4 WC is bad idea now. That train left station one week ago. And we haven't seen anything massive happening, at least yet.

          1. Reinhold
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Yeah I'm not doing that anyway now. But this is an alternative to a GW7-8 WC too.

        2. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Very sensible, too much knee jerking going down right now

        3. ZeBestee
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Agreed on all points but one.

          You can never predict Pep's City so CL or not we are going to get rotation galore all season long.

        4. Egg noodle
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          The only real advantage I see in all of those bullet points is the first one.
          Are you going to sell West Ham players if Europa kicks in?
          Most of us haven't got room available for Leeds players.
          Why are you talking about taking a hit on wildcard? And ok maybe there is a 0.1% fear that he wont start GW4.
          Pep is more random than that.
          The point of stats is that they let you make moves ahead of the curve. So yeah, you can wait, but I wont.

          Dont forget that the good players are going to be more costly in GW5 than GW4.

      7. Slitherene

        Best 3 GW midfield punt??

        A) Sarr (nor, NEW, lee)
        B) Raphinha (new, WHU, wat)

        1. Reinhold
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          B

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Raphinha not missing games due to international duty?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              He’s not on international duty so should be fine. Cannot see FIFA trying to ban them given shambles tonight

      8. GoonerSteve
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Thoughts on this wildcard team:

        Sanchez (Steele)
        TAA, Shaw, Coufal, (Livramento, Williams)
        Salah, Greenwood, Torres, Raphina, Benrahma
        Ronaldo, Antonio (Dennis)

        Gives me aomw bench cover for the risky midfield rotations

        1. GoonerSteve
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          *some bench cover

        2. LSK
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Semedo over Coufal for me. Good team otherwise. I toyed with having Dennis but I can see myself needing that .7 later and it costing me a hit to rearrange funds. That -4 is likely more than Dennis coming off the bench will get you.

          1. GoonerSteve
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Yes good point

        3. Tarby
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I think the best bench options would be Livramento and Williams like you already have, but Gilmour in midfield.

          Dennis is the best cheap forward option but I cant' see that you'd ever start him so best to go cheaper. I really like Jimenez at the moment to make a 343 then downgrade one of your midfield (not Mo!) to Gilmour.

      9. ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        How this team for a WC?

        Sanchez 4
        Digne Saiss TAA Veltman Limva
        Salah Greenwood Son Torres McArthur/Allan
        Jimenez DCL Antonio

        When James is back, would replace Digne.

        Havent done it yet but contemplating.

        1. GoonerSteve
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          No Ronaldo?

          1. ZeBestee
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Is he a must have? How many goals you expecting him to score and is a player like Son going to match/provide better value?

            1. ZeBestee
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              I can replace Son and DCL to Cr7 and Raphinha and downgrade Velt to 4m defender.

        2. LSK
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Shaw over Digne imo. Without Lukaku or Ronaldo you’ll want to at least cover Shaw’s points.

          1. ZeBestee
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I like Everton's next few, but Shaw is a decent option with Varane in

        3. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Think I would want one premium forward on a WC so you have more flexibility going forward

        4. Ephurion
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          I quite like it.
          It's basically a bet on Salah "permacap" with the occasional cameo captain keeping up with Lukaku/Ronaldo over time

      10. fantasyfog
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Haven't checked in for a while, what are saying about Ronaldo? Essential?

        Salah
        Ronaldo
        Lukaku
        Kane
        Fernandes
        Vardy
        Son

        Can't have the all, so what order of MVP

        1. Bertonian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Salah
          Lukaku
          Ronaldo
          Kane

          Vards

        3. tbos83
            1 month, 12 days ago

            The order is this:

            Salah
            Ronaldo
            Lukaku
            Kane
            Son

            Salah
            Ronaldo/Lukaku depending on form/fixtures.

            The others are pretty much ruled out for me except for injuries, blanks, doubles and other exceptional circumstances.

            I’d group Bruno with Mane now that he is likely off pens and direct free kicks. He’ll score a lot of points but a better option is available in the same team.
            I feel Son and Vardy are just a little too expensive to have alongside two other premiums without losing Trent.
            Kane will score a lot of points but I don’t see him outscoring Salah, Ronaldo or Lukaku long term so that rules him out for me.
            KDB you never know when he’ll be rested so difficult to captain.
            Think I’ll stick with Salah and one of Lukaku or Ronaldo for 95% of the season.

              Yeah losing TAA doesn't sit well with me

            Salah Lukaku Ronaldo. That order and them 3 only

              Kane and Son playing for a low scoring Spurs side with less goal involvement than last year with the likes of Alli, Bergwin, etc playing.

              Mane off form

              Bruno off pens and Ronaldo hogging all the goal threat

              Better value for money from City with the likes of Torres making KDB not worth it IMO

              Vardy top all day long. Perma captain, he loves a Hattie Vs Man City too

            Anyone know the stats when in the season it's usually best to play 4 or even 5 defenders? That is, is there a period we have more CS than any other period in the 38 gameweeks?

              Have a feeling defs are the best PPM except first and last few weeks, can't be more specific than that

            Think Torres can be waited on a bit.

            Leicester, Chelsea, Liverpool away in the next 4 in the midst of a congested fixture schedule, I'm happy to wait and see. Rotation a concern and even if he makes it on the pitch no guarantee he does much, GW5 aside.

            If I'm wrong, I can get him GW8 - he's cheap enough. If not, then GW/Jota will likely have outscored him.

              • 4 Years

              Quite, if he keeps his spot for another month we can be semi-confident

              Yep. If he's the pick people buying him now hope he is then I'll happily pay whatever extra he costs in GW8. Let others be first through the door on that one.

                Think that's where I am with him as well. I won't mind paying 7.5+ if he turns out to such a good option.

                No. Can't rise before even kicking a PL ball.

              Please rate the moves.. planning with Salah(c) until week 6 and wildcard thereafter

              Sanchez
              Taa, Shaw,Livra
              Salah(c), Son, Greenwood, ESR

                Arse-man are we?
                Kaku not an option?

                  Lukaku is cool..but just doesn't feel(the best) for next 3.
                  Arsenal play Norwich and vardy is against Mancity.
                  Trying to exploit the fixture

                    I'd wait for Auba to start bangin em in before taking the plunge

                    Fair enough. For me main goal getter for possibly best team in the league so no reason can't get something against Spurs or City with good chance of tearing it up against Jed Steer; saves a transfer down the line; cheap for what he is.

                  3. Ooh Ah Cantona
                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      Vardy and Son are the two players that love a goal against Man city.
                      It's only one toughie fixture, then Leicester have an easy run.

                Like it but many won’t.

                If you were doing those moves at beginning of last season & with good fixtures to come it would be a NO BRAINER!

                The war in Yugoslavia arguably started during the Red Star Belgrade - Dinano Zagreb game. Just saying. We could have a full blown war in South America soon enough.

                My WC team atm:

                Sanchez (Bachmann)
                TAA Alonso Shaw (Duffy Sanchez)
                Son Jota Greenwood Benrahma (Allan)
                Jesus Lukaku Antonio

                Not sure about:
                - ....my midfield
                - Jesus

                Seems Jota and Greenwood both heading for rotation issues, and is Torres starting up front ahead of Jesus now?

                TAA Shaw Williams ?? ??
                considering williams as a sub only option which 2 other cheap defenders are the best to get on a WC that rotate well ?
                thinking of maybe getting one of Ayling Dier or Coady and but who do they rotate best with ?

                Hey legends, would love your opinion on both:

                A) Sarr or Traore?
                B) Sarr/Traore DCL vs Torres Jimenez
