Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold and Newcastle star Kieran Trippier are the most expensive defenders in the game and they’re expected to get the points to back it up in the coming weeks.

There’s also plenty of faith in Manchester City defenders, with Kyle Walker and Manuel Akanji both featuring in the top 10. They’ve replaced Josko Gvardiol and John Stones who had both previously been up there.

Also predicted to score 15 points are Ethan Pinnock, Joachim Anderson, and Kostas Tsimikas, all of whom could be well worth the investment.
