There will be plenty of FPL focus on Harry Maguire (£5.5m) this season after he became the world’s most expensive defender and joined Manchester United from Leicester City. The England man averaged a relatively low 2.97 points per game at Leicester last year but he will be hoping to improve on the six clean sheets he was involved in. Compared to Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m), the Spurs defender had the edge in the clean sheet department (12), but Maguire is more than capable of eclipsing his numbers and offering better value for money at his new club and their revamped defence.
Verdict: Harry Maguire
