So for the 4.0 options it looks like Rico is in a battle for the shirt with Daniels (with Smith switching sides also an option). Lundstram has started all recent friendlies for Sheff Utd and played 60 minutes plus as a defensive midfielder. Rico has better fixtures but Lundstram perhaps looks the safer bet for a longer run unless the Blades bring in a new face in midfield (they have been linked to Daniel Amartey of Leicester in recent days). Lundstram is not a popular choice amongst the Sheff Utd fans going off their forums though.
Not forgetting Hanley at Norwich.
I don't think Hanley starts when everyone is fit. Klose and Zimmermann are both more likely to play from what I've read in the Norwich fan forums.

IF Luiz goes to Arsenal then is the Chelsea back 4 likely to be Emerson/Alonso, Zouma, Christensen, Azpi until Rudiger returns? Or would Azpi return to the centre with Zappacosta coming into play? Potential bargains to be had.

Who will replace Maguire at LC?
According to Fantasy Scout they think Soyuncu at £4.5m for GW1 🤔

Soyuncu - Evans will be first choice CBs for Leicester. Benkovic and Morgan as backups

This is a tempting backline just for the fun of it.

I have brought Zouma in for 5m this morning, no Luiz makes him almost certain to start.

This is what I'm thinking too. 13-15 clean sheets and a goal should be worth about ~130 or so points. A bit more if Chelsea can keep 15+, and they were the third best defence last season even without Kante doing the Kante role.

The Luiz move isn't entirely sealed yet I think, but if it goes through then Zouma will be in my team (although possibly on the bench for GW1).

Rudiger plays RCB as does Christensen. Zouma plays LCB so the liklihood is it will be Rudiger and Zouma moving forwards.

May I suggest David Luiz Is Still Being Controlled By A 10 Year-Old On A PlayStation? Or would that be too many characters?

Mo Besic signs for Sheff Utd which could affect Lundstram's minutes?

If Zouma and Christensen are too shaky (which they have been in pre-season) we might even see Azpilicueta and Rudiger there with Reece James at RB if fit.

Yep, I would say this kills Lundstram as an option unfortunately. Bešić looks like the midfielder Wilder was hoping to sign.

Who is the most likely to get minutes among the 4.0 defenders now? I think Lundstram is not a choice anymore. I'm probably going with Rico.

Rico for me, but I fear the 4m defs are all doomed.

Anyone know if 4.5m Söyüncü will be first choice CB partner to Evans now Maguire has gone and no-one was signed?

Wes Morgan ages by the day.

One of the Blogs Paw's or maybe AR mentioned that Söyüncü was ahead of Morgan. Don't know anything myself.

No chance zappacosta gets in there without serious injury problems

Leaning towards Dunk as my £4.5m choice, purely due to fixtures. I'd only feel the need to bench him 3 times in the first 12 GWs, which is pretty good going really.

Best 4.5m defender from this week onwards? Very narrow bunch of options, taking fixtures into consideration and I'm starting to think Mings could be the merciless man for me.

Leicester looked very short as in height without Maguire so I expect a few corners to end in goals.

I have not seen anyone discussing or suggesting Erik Pieters at Burnley at 4.5m. Will he be a regular starter? I used to have him occasionally in the past at Stoke with some attacking returns. He is doing well so far, if you can say that at such an early stage.
