FPL Wildcard targets: Marcos Alonso

The Scout 7 Jan 2018
Marcos Alonso - Chelsea v Brighton & Hove Albion

The Scout says the Chelsea player's potential to get points at both ends of the pitch cannot be ignored

With the second Fantasy Premier League Wildcard available, The Scout reviews the top targets to consider for the chip.

Marcos Alonso (CHE) £7.3m

The most expensive defender available is also the top-ranked in the game on 123 points.

Alonso shows no sign of slowing up.

The Spaniard has produced eight clean sheets since Gameweek 10, with Chelsea conceding just six goals over those 13 matches, fewer than any other side.

His defensive points are boosted by a considerable threat in the opposition box, which has provided six goals.

That already equals last season’s tally, while, with 43 shots, he is just three shy of his total of 46 from 31 appearances in 2016/17.

Meanwhile, four of Alonso’s next five opponents score just two in the Fixture Difficulty Rankings (FDR).
