Three defenders to consider for FPL Gameweek 5 including Chelsea and Aston Villa stars
Ezri Konsa (Aston Villa) – £4.6m
Aston Villa have made an impressive start to the season having won all of their three matches to date. In that time they’ve only conceded twice – both coming in the sensational 7-2 win over champions Liverpool last time out. The centre-back partnership of Ezri Konsa and Tyrone Mings have played a big part in Dean Smith’s side’s fast opening. Konsa, who we’ve opted for over Mings due to being £0.5m cheaper, has racked up 22 points in three matches due to two clean sheets and a goal. This makes him the fifth highest scoring defender to date and the least expensive out of those top-5. Next up is a tricky looking game at Leicester but with the Foxes having been beaten 3-0 at home by West Ham in their last match it could be another claret & blue day at the King Power.
