Fantasy Premier League: Clyne creativity keeps Spurs pair in check

Reds full-back leads the way for FPL assist potential from the back, with a Tottenham Hotspur double-act closing fast

Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne (£5.8m) is the most creative defender available to Fantasy Premier League managers, according to the ICT Index.

A measure of a player’s potential to return assists, the Creativity component of the Index identifies the Reds’ right-back as this season’s top performer among defenders so far.

Scoring 456.4, the numbers behind that tally show that Clyne has laid on more goal scoring opportunities (30) for team-mates than any other FPL backline asset.

Bursting forward down Liverpool’s right channel, the wing-back has also received (375) and completed more passes (340) in the attacking third than any other defender.

Clyne is the only ever-present defender among the ICT Creativity top 10 and has claimed two assists to this point.

He may soon surrender his current standing, however, given that Liverpool will face five of the current top six over their next nine Gameweeks.
