The Scout on why Chelsea defender has form and fixtures to reward growing band of owners in Fantasy

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 28 of 2022/23 Fantasy Premier League.

Ben Chilwell (CHE) £5.9m 

The Chelsea wing-back looks back to his best ahead of a favourable run of fixtures.

Having returned to action in Gameweek 22 following injury, Chilwell has produced a goal, an assist and a clean sheet across his last two outings.

That has earned the defender 18 points and made him a top target for Chelsea's home match fixture Everton.

Indeed, he is the most-bought player ahead of Friday’s 18:30 GMT deadline, transferred in by 150,000+ managers.


Despite being limited to only eight starts this season, Chilwell has been among the most reliable defenders for attacking returns.

He has been involved in five goals, scoring two and assisting three.

Defenders' attacking stats 22/23
Player Goal involvement Goals Assists Mins/goal involvement
Trippier 7 1 6 313.9
Robertson 6 0 6 295.0
Chilwell 5 2 3 155.8
Davies 5 2 3 368.2
Alexander-Arnold 5 1 4 386.4
Estupinan 5 0 5 297.0
Perisic 5 0 5 303.0

Only two defenders have surpassed Chilwell's total, with Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) and Andrew Robertson (£6.8m) producing seven and six respectively.

In terms of frequency of goal involvement, Chilwell’s average of 155.8 minutes per goal or assist is more than twice as fast as the 313.9 of Newcastle United's Trippier, who is the top-scoring defender in Fantasy.

Chelsea’s match against Everton starts a run of three home fixtures in the next two Gameweeks, with Aston Villa and Liverpool both visiting in Double Gameweek 29.

Graham Potter’s side have been particularly resilient at Stamford Bridge recently, conceding only one goal in their last four home matches.

When that factor is combined with his potential for attacking returns, Chilwell could be a key player in Fantasy over the coming period.
