My best replacements for injured De Bruyne ahead of FPL Gameweek 20

Fantasy Premier League managers are now frantically searching for a viable replacement for Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) ahead of Gameweek 20.

I recently signed the Manchester City midfielder for Double Gameweek 19 and, considering he is our for four to six weeks according to Pep Guardiola’s last estimate, he is going straight back out again.

But who to replace him with? That is the key question, which I will look to answer in my latest article about how my team is faring in 2020/21.

BEST DE BRUYNE REPLACEMENTS

I excluded Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) from my shortlist of five possible candidates since I already have them in my team but I think both of them are clearly the best choices if you are a non-owner. Despite modest performances in the Double Gameweek, we all know what they are capable of and both of them are set-and-forget picks for me right now.

RAHEEM STERLING (£11.4m): Manchester City plays against West Brom and Sheffield United in the next two Gameweeks so it is tempting to make a direct switch from De Bruyne to one of his teammates. Having started seven of the last eight Premier League matches, Sterling is probably the most nailed and explosive option among City’s midfielders, in my opinion. Looking at his numbers, if we split his season in half, it becomes clear his expected goals and assists per 90 minutes increased a lot in the past few months.

Sterling’s expected Goal Involvement xGI) per 90 minutes (Gameweeks 1 to 9 on the left and Gameweeks 10 to 19 on the right)

Regardless of this improvement, I think he is clearly overpriced this season, especially if we compare him with the likes of Fernandes, Son or even Grealish. Coupled with the ever-present possibility of a random benching in an easy fixture, I doubt Sterling is the best available option to replace De Bruyne.

SON HEUNG-MIN (£9.7m): After selling Son last week, I was fairly settled on Salah, De Bruyne and Fernandes as my heavy-hitters of choice going forward. But unfortunately, injuries cannot be predicted and so, Son is back on my plans once again.

At first glance Spurs’ fixtures seem really tough which may scare potential investors in the South Korean superstar. They do play against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in three of the next five Gameweeks, which is far from ideal. On the bright side, however, three of the next four matches are at home and it seems to be the perfect moment to play against Liverpool and Chelsea, given their recent poor form.

All in all, I think Son is definitely one of the best (if not the absolute best) options to replace De Bruyne. His attacking numbers are great, his finishing is second to none in the Premier League and his pricing seems fair considering what he offers.

JACK GREALISH (£7.7m): With just one attacking return in the last four Gameweeks, Grealish has been underwhelming as an FPL asset lately, which will possibly deter further investment from non-owners like me. It’s important to note, however, that he played against Chelsea, United and City and yet, he still managed to create the second most chances among all midfielders, only behind Mason Mount (£6.8m).

I think Grealish is still a great option going forward. He is at the heart of an impressive Aston Villa team and he is nailed to play 90 minutes in every single match, which is a very important factor these days. Even without spot-kick duties, I think he offers an impressive mixture of safety, attacking threat and price.

PHIL FODEN (£6.3m): With five shots inside the box and six chances created against Aston Villa, Foden immediately positioned himself as an appealing option for those on the market for a midfielder.

However, even after De Bruyne’s injury, Guardiola has a lot of attacking options at his disposal and I think it’s highly unlikely Foden will suddenly become a nailed starter, regardless of how many goals he scores or how many chances he creates.

I’m sure he will be worth £6.3m, even with the odd benching but, with so much money available right now, I don’t feel like sweating City’s lineup every Gameweek when there are several more reliable and safe options to pick from.

ILKAY GUNDOGAN (£5.5m):Having scored five goals in the last seven matches while playing at least 70 minutes in every single one of them, Gundogan looks like an absolute bargain, especially now that there is an extra-spot available in City’s midfield.

If we add spot-kick duties and two amazing fixtures to the equation, Gundogan becomes really hard to ignore. The only downside I can think of is the possibility of a rest very soon, given how much he has been playing lately and his history of long-term injuries.

CONCLUSION

At the moment, I managed to discard Sterling and Foden and it seems like my decision will most likely be between Son and Gundogan (although Grealish is still in the mix).

If you are looking to upgrade someone for a hit or even for free next week, I think the decision is fairly easy. Gundogan offers insane value right now with great attacking numbers, decent expected minutes and penalty-duties for just £5.5m.

For the rest of us, who are looking to buy the best possible option regardless of price , I think it’s really close between Son and Gundogan. It’s actually quite possible I get Son for De Bruyne this week and Gundogan for Soucek next week but, with three days still to go until the deadline, I am waiting a bit more before making my final decision.

    For GW20 bench one out of

    Dallas
    James
    Coufal

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years

      Dallas IMO

    2. rubberdignerapids

      Tough one...probably Dallas, but Newcastle are so woeful I'd be tempted to play him ahead of Coufal

    3. Coys96

      coufal

    Set to enter the top 10k for the first time ever, regardless of an epic bench-boost fail. Will take that in a season full of shocks and surprises. 😀

      congrats.

        Nice one!
        I dipped into the top 10K a month or so back for an afternoon, felt great lol, but soon dropped back out by the Sunday.
        Every single point is a killer up there.

      Yes or No?

      KDB, Stephens to Son, Gundogan -4pt hit

      1. jammie26
          1 month, 5 days ago

          KDB to Son and then get gundo next week?

        • Rupert The Horse

          Ofc yes. Dont understand why not...u take out players that wont give any points anyway. Il even do it for -8.

          Depends if you can see yourself needing your transfer next week.

          You don't need to make the -4 back straight away. In fact you are effectively bringing all future transfers a week forward and the present value of your decision (sorry, maths geek) needs to be considered.

          I'm going KDB and DCL to Gundo and Kane for -4....even tho I could wait till next week for Kane for free as I'd rather take the hit now and know I have a free transfer next week. If you follow me?

        Not sure I can stomach playing Wilson (LEE) again next GW:

        A) Wilson (LEE)
        B) Soucek (cpa)
        C) H.Barnes (eve) -4

        1. MattysFantasyFooty
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          C is more fun plus could be playing striker maybe?

            Decent record in the game’s without Vardy

              false. Lei seem to shut down without Vardy. Perez picks it up a bit though.

              1. Miguel Sanchez
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years

                Ok - prob best to see how they look vs Everton then

          1 month, 5 days ago

          At home against Leeds, surely he'll pop up with a goal ?
          I'm pretty confident.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            They do nothing every game

          • 3 Years

          Wilson has been a awful choice for me too. I’d play Soucek

        4. rubberdignerapids
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          You still captaining Cancelo mate?

          My arm band is still firmly on him- with his assist tonight (even though it was a cup game against inferior opposition), I think it will give him more of a boost come WBA away.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Think I am - 90 mins for Bruno tomorrow and it would be locked

        5. Old Gregg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Painful isn’t it!?. I may have to play him.

          C)

      3. DBossman_2000
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Vardy replacements?

        Looking at Watkins, Ings or Cavani

        1. tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Kane for me...

        2. rubberdignerapids
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Kane the obvious choice

          would consider Antonio if you don't have him

      4. jammie26
          1 month, 5 days ago

          126 with no chips, I'll take that. Grealish didn't like being subbed did he!

        • WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          96 (-4) = 92 points. Not great which is clear by the 6k red arrow. But could've been worse. Had KdB played for a minute more, I would've hit 100.

          But a nailbiting win (hopefully if BAPS stay as is) in the cup! Move on to the next GW!
          92-91. Is down to whether Watkins gets 2 BAPs or not.

          My bench boost got me 34 pts, Areola (5), Justin (14), Saka (9) and ESR (6). Very glad I used it !

          Dreadful DGW my team didn't even score a goal. Where do I go from here ?

          McCarthy
          Dias, AWB, Justin
          Salah, Bruno, KDB, Son, Soucek
          Bamford, Wilson

          Forster, Dier, Lamptey, Brewster

          1 FT, 0.1m ITB

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Dier to Stones or Wilson to Watkins

              Didn’t clock KDB! He should go first of course

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            KDB > Maddison
            Wilson > Kane. Worth a -4 imo

          3. DBossman_2000

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Same here! Nightmare DGW. Your team is decent though, would look at KDB to Barnes/Maddison then upgrade Wilson to Kane next gw with the money

            Thanks guy's. I was thinking

            KDB to Gundogan this GW, then Wilson to Kane next GW but is Maddison a better option ?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            KDB > Rashford, Brewster > Antonio

          6. gogs67
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Decent team, you just had a bad week. Get in Kane and Gundo or Barnes and there's not a lot more to do.

            Play 2 of these:

            1) Coufal
            2) Soucek

            4) Targett

              Soucek's attack stats have been atrocious (pretty much non existent) since Antonio's return

                You can make a fortune out of that if you are so sure with around 4.00 odds of a penalty miss. Guaranteed means 100% chance of a miss after all, 4 times return with 0 risk for you.

            Dropping out of school, starting drinking, taking up fantasy football etc

                Benching as second sub behind Lookman- Soucek's attacking stats have been atrocious (pretty much non existent) since Antonio's return

                I feel that his physical presence for setpieces are no longer required with Antonio now in the mix and has returned to more defensive duties

              I know Wilson has been frustrating to own, and Newcastle are very poor indeed. But his last 3 games were away from home. He has a decent record at home this season (5 goals in 8 games). And 3 of his 4 blanks at home were against top-4 teams (Leicester, United and Liverpool). Plus Fraser is now back, and we all know how important he is to Wilson getting goals. With Leeds next, I can easily see a haul from him. Other fires to put out anyway.

                Next 4 for Wilson, 3 home games (Leeds, Palace, Southampton). And an away game at Everton. At least 2 goals from him during that period imo !

                  All 3 teams are better than Newcastle unfortunately

                    Leeds and Palace are all over the place in defense though.

                  If you've kept him this long you might as well keep him for one of the worst defences in the league.

                        If you have other fires then keeping Wilson for Leeds makes sense.

                  Before the DGW I did Wood TAA Son to Antonio Stones KDV(C) for -8. It aint bad. But I knew I should have taken another -4 for Mcarthy to Martinez. -12 only sounds bad, it was absolutely worth it

                  Was fearing the worst playing no chips over the BGW and DGW but looks like mew rank will be 1,937.

                      So Salah. Literally sold him for KDB for the fixtures and dgw. Have not missed him since selling but has liverpool fortunes turned?

                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    Can't make a decision here, depending on price of replacement it could lead to a whole formation/set up change so it's a very tricky one.

                    1. Reggie Nainggolan
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      True say. If I buy e.g. Gundogan, can easily improve my defence and upgrade on another big attacker. But do I go safe and cover off Salah even tho their form has been poor

                • Hadebayor Mum
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  KDB to Gundogan seems the obvious move, but I just have a niggling feeling he is a trap. Also undecided about my mid price forward line of Watkins, Antonio and Bamford. Pondering Kane in. Feels like an important moment of the season where I'm trying to decide on formation which is clouding judgement on a cheap. mid price or expensive replacement for KDB.

                  Plenty of head scratching to be done, anyway.

                    same situation, I have kdb and vardy, just feel like kdb > gundo puts the team structure in chaos and know real way to get rid of the excess cash for weeks, head scratching indeed

                  Which one to come into my team for KDB? Not a fan of city replacements.

                  A) Grealish (depending on tonight)
                  B) Maddison
                  C) Rashford

                  Seems obvious to me, but maybe there are other views on here.

                    I’m literally on the same transfers but deciding if it’s worth waiting on Kane.

                    Holding or Wilson have ok fixtures and I can’t see Liverpool game bringing more than 1 spurs goal

                      But Kane would probably score that goal though lol.

                      For me it's either Kane (-4) or Coufal/Justin. I'm gonna try my luck with Kane. Not the end of the worlds if it doesn't pay off, I want Kane longterm anyway.

                  Horrible 79 week but played no chips so don’t mind too much.

                  Vardy and KDB is annoying. Would you take a hit to get Kane v Liverpool or play Wilson?

                    I'm playing Wilson.
