The Scout pinpoints the top targets for owners of injured Chelsea defender in Fantasy

An injury to Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) looks set to make a big impact on the transfer plans of managers in Fantasy Premier League.

The wing-back has been ruled out for at least six weeks with a partial ACL injury sustained in Chelsea's 4-0 UEFA Champions League win over Juventus on Tuesday.

"The next six weeks will tell the story if he makes it and will be fully available, or if he needs surgery after that," Tuchel told the club's official website.

"‘Everybody's focus is on the next six weeks to get him back on the pitch."

Chilwell has already earned over 390,000 transfers out, with many managers targeting his Chelsea team-mates as a replacement

Most-bought Chilwell replacements
Player Transfers in
James (CHE) 536,985
Alexander-Arnold (LIV) 388,767
Cancelo (MCI) 276,389
Rudiger (CHE) 139,737
Alonso (CHE) 57,392

And with an ownership still over 16.0 per cent, huge sales can be expected ahead of Saturday's 11:00 GMT deadline.

The Scout looks at the best Chilwell replacements across a variety of price ranges.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (LIV) £7.8m

Liverpool's right-back is the most explosive defender in Fantasy this season, returning five double-figure hauls in 10 appearances. Alexander-Arnold's 34 chances created place second among all players in 2021/22. 

Reece James (CHE) £6.1m

Chelsea's right wing-back offers a long-term route into Thomas Tuchel's defence. James has earned 53 points in the last four Gameweeks, producing three goals, two assists, three clean sheets and 10 bonus points in that period.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £5.6m

The Spaniard looks set for a run of starts in the Chelsea line-up as a result of Chilwell's injury. Alonso produced 39 points in his six appearances this season, combining one goal and an assist with four clean sheets.

Sergio Reguilon (TOT) £5.1m

Playing as a wing-back, the Spaniard has produced 14 points in his two appearances under Antonio Conte. Six of Tottenham Hotspur's next nine matches score only two in the Fixture Difficulty Ratings

Tariq Lamptey (BHA) £4.4m

His return to fitness offers a cut-price route into Brighton & Hove Albion's defence. Lamptey's three shots in the box over the last two Gameweeks is only one shot off the top spot for defenders.
