FPL Gameweek 23 Defender Tips: Cancelo, Dias are rocking for Man City!

FPL Gameweek 23 Defender Tips:

It has been a really strange season in the Premier League. One week we see a team displaying a championship-winning performance followed by a toothless and spineless performance the following week. Injuries to top players like Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Kevin De Bruyne hasn't helped the cause either. 

Hence, we shift our focus on strengthing your defense for this gameweek. Lets look at some in-form defenders who can get in your FPL gameweek 23 defender squad.

Defenses win you titles: 

However cliched it may sound, most Manchester City fans wouldn't disagree with this. The blue half of Manchester has only conceded just 2 goals in their last 14 games in the Premier League. Man City have not conceded a goal in their last 6 matches.

A lot of credits goes to their formidable partnership pairing of Ruben Dias and John Stones at the back for Manchester City. The full-backs have been a great support system as well to the centre-backs. It goes without saying that you can pick atleast 2 defenders from Man City in any combination for FPL gameweek 23 defender tips. 

Chelsea have started to pick momentum under new manager, Thomas Tuchel, winning their last 2 games out of 3 matches. The blues are yet to concede a goal under Tuchel, and it goes to show that the German's tactics and change in formation has worked for Chelsea. 

Marcos Alonso has featured in all 3 games under Tuchel. He plays as a wing-back in the new system which means he would be joining the attack more often. 

Hence, Alonso would be another recommendation for FPL gameweek 21 defender picks.
