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.

      Computer says yes

    4. Charlie&TheLads
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Assuming at least one hit? Therefore no.

    Benching headache like many it seems...
    Play which 2 of Coufal, Holding, Dallas, Soucek, Smith-Rowe?
    Thanks

          Nope fair, but you could still answer the question 🙂

              Thanks

  3. Ginola14
    • 9 Years

    Bench either
    Gundo or
    Bamford, cheers

    1. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Who else have you got?? I would want to play both.

      1. Ginola14
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Fresh off a bench boost so knew it would be tough
        Ederson
        Robbo / cress / stones
        Salah / son / saka / great / gundo
        Kane / antonio
        Martinez. / Bamford / reg / alioski

        1. Trippier Hazard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Not Gundo - either Bamford or Saka for me to bench, I'd prob play Bamford, seeing how NEW played tonight

        2. Aztec Kamara
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Ok I see your problem now 🙂
          I would bench Saka.
          Out of Gund/Bam I would play Gundogan I think, but it’s risky as Leeds carved Newcastle up last time.

    2. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Is this a new type of Haiku?

      1. Ginola14
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Yeah the unintentional kind...

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          You should bench Bamford
          He will score less than Gundo
          Save team and log out

    3. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Tough one, Bam probably, even though it's against Newcastle they are struggling right now and wouldn't be suprised if ends up just like against Brighton.

      1. Ginola14
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        That's what I'm thinking, cheers fellas

      Gundagon?

    2. aleksaa2

      No

    3. Trippier Hazard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Nope, CHE should do well against WOL, LIV out of form

      1. Charlie&TheLads
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        But CHE are out of form...

  6. Jdpz

  8. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Think I want Kane and Maddison next week so may take the -4 next week.. Leeds Hm looks really tempting!

    1. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Imo Leeds look more tempting because it's Newcastle than because it's Leeds... Could be dissapointing

  9. Reeker
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Do De Bruyne for Gundo tonight or just wait because price isn't an issue at the moment

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Now City have played, it doesn't feel as risky to make the move.

      KDB is out for week, you'll sell him regardless.

      Pep needed to win a game today so he brought on, who I suppose he would deem his most important players: Dias, Cancelo & Gundogan.

      Doubt much more news comes out RE: City before deadline, so why not I suppose.

    2. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Can't see why not

    3. Mr Tin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Covid is the risk every week now, not injuries. Leave transfers as late as possible in case games are called off.

      1. Charlie&TheLads
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Logic!

  10. Jdpz

    1 month, 4 days ago

    a) AWB
    b) Maguire
    c) Shaw

  11. Boberella
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Morning all,
    Quick Q -
    Would you play:
    A) Adams (ARS home)
    B) Coufal (CRY away)

    1. Woodpusher64
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B) for me.
      I have Adams and want rid.

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        +1, Can't wait to get rid of Adams

    2. SallySlayer
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B, barely - arsenal d looks good but Ings is coming back..

    3. Deulofail

      B for Boberella

    4. Boberella
      • 4 Years

      Thanks all, currently on B so that confirms it.

  12. Charlie&TheLads

    Taking a step back from fantasy for a moment...
    Losing KDB is big for city. How are they going to setup?
    Is Jesus just going to slot into the No.9?
    Might Pep try some other arrangement?
    He tried Raheem a few times but didn’t work out very well.

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Stick Bernardo where Kev normally plays and she’ll be right.

  13. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    KDB ->

    A) Gundo
    B) Salah
    C) grealish
    D) sterling
    E) Son

    Currently leaning towards gundo. Pull the trigger before the price changes given he was rested and came through his cameo unscathed?

    1. tomasjj
      • 6 Years

      e

    2. SallySlayer
      • 1 Year

      Went Gundo myself. Villa playing tough defenses in the next 4

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Son, consistency and the Liv match is definitely a 'Son game.'

    Worth Wilson > Antonio for a -4? Newcastle look atrocious at the moment.

    Front 7
    Gundo - Soucek - Son - Bruno
    Kane - Wilson - Bam

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Leeds are atrocious at the back, I'd hold this week.

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I don't think so. Newcastle look poor but everyone can score against Leeds

    3. SallySlayer

      This is a good question
      Already have Gund but wondering how Pep might like things up...

  17. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    A) KDB to Son

      Thanks chaps, rival in a H2H has Kane and I'm worried about Werner starting, but i think you're right.

    3. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years

      B

    4. Charlie&TheLads
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Werner no threat based on lack of form, minutes and confidence

  18. tomasjj
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    First move?
    getting both

    a) Kane (LIV)
    b) Cavani (SHU)

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B. Think the Liverpool match is a Son game.

    2. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B

    3. tomasjj
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I reckon Son will do well, yes.

  19. PremKraut
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    had to take -8 to go from:

    Watkins, Raphinha, KDB
    to
    Kane, Gündogan, Madders

    hope this pays off.

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Why had to?

      1. PremKraut
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I was forced to do that because of the price changes, otherwise I would not have had the opportunity to bring in Kane and Maddison as long term solutions.

        Originally Salah was supposed to go, but then KDB got injured.

        1. Charlie&TheLads
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

      Wow- not sure why you got rid of Raphinha before Newcastle game... I would just have done KDB to Gundogan and decided other moves next week. Good luck with moves

    Dias or Cancelo . Already have Stones.

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cancelo and pray he starts converting some of his XGI soon

    2. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cancelo

    3. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Cancelo

  22. jimmy.floyd
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Play one:

    A Saka
    B Coufal
    C Wilson
    D Souček

    Have Cresswell

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Saka

      Cresswell has nothing to do with my decision

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    3. WOLVERiNES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Saka, Coufal, Wilson, Soucek in that order

  23. WOLVERiNES
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Son or Gundogan this week ?? Might get the other one next week. Already have Kane

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Gundo

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I just went for gundo and am in the same position as you

    2. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      If you're not sure you want both, go for the cheapest.

    3. Wılly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Gundo this week, Son next. Perfect switcheroo if you have Soucek.

    4. WOLVERiNES
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      That is what Im planning. One for KDB this week and the other for Soucek next week.

      Gundogan has the fixtures going for him plus was rested today. So Im leaning towards him and hoping Liverpool keep Son away from any points

    A pretty 'good' manager in my league played a BB of Steer/Dallas/Wilson/Mitchell 😐

  25. Wılly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Who to bench from:

    A. Adams
    B. Soucek
    C. Coufal
    D. Dallas

    1. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      It's still early to justify the Soucek with-w/o Antonio theory but i would start Dallas/Coufal over Soucek.Now between them it's tough.I am going Coufal if Zaha is out.

  26. marcos11

      Which trio?

      a) Maddison/ESR/Antonio
      b) Grealish/Gundo/Brewster

      1. Huckfead
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        A for me

    • Huckfead
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Best Mid to replace De Bruyne.

      Replace with Salah or Gundogan so I can upgrade my cheap 6.5 forwards?

      Trying to get my head around this before price rises/falls so, any help appreciated

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I have just this second gone with Gundogan.

        Tempted by Son but it's the fixture. Can only see Liverpool having to play safe.

    • Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I’m already pretty set on doing kdb to son but I also have vardy

      Would you do esr to gundo for a -4 to bench vardy and go 3/5/2 ? Can then do vardy to Kane the week after and bench souceck

      1. WOLVERiNES
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Get rid of soucek instead, Play ESR rest is 50-50

    • Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      So who's currently got the armband on Cancelo? He's 'due' and with no real standout cap option this week, its perhaps a good week for a captaincy punt.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        One of my top options at the moment :s

      2. Egg noodle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Have you seen the man United fixture?

      3. DK_13
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Sheffield don't concede a lot but with Egan out it could be a massacre. So cancelo is still my VC

    • cnewman7
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I’ve already got Foden. Should I still do KDB to Gundo or look elsewhere?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        WBA/SHU/BUR are probably as good as it gets fixture wise.

        If there's ever a time for a double-up in attack, aside from KDB being out, it doesn't get any better.

      2. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Why would that stop you getting Gundo? Genuinely interested

        1. cnewman7
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Because it blocks me from double defence, which I think is the better play. But that would mean going for someone like Grealish or Barnes and taking a hit to get either Stones or Cancelo (have Dias)

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Grealish is a great option still, I think. I wouldn't make any sacrifices to get Barnes in though.
