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.

    What’s this Son or Kane push vs Liverpool?
    Defence not the issue for Liverpool atm.

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I presume because they remain a reliable source of attacking returns where other premiums have stalled. Fixtures aren't terrific though.

      1. Charlie&TheLads
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I do intend to replace Vardy with Kane but in no rush given next fixture.

    2. aleksaa2

      Benches of many people, who didn't use chips are awful. They have to bring someone and both of them are a long term option, not just for this gw.

      1. Charlie&TheLads
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Long term, fine
        Getting this week, why?

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

          My case, would you play Bissouma or Son?

          1. Charlie&TheLads
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Ah lad, really?
            Brighton are going well atm but is Bissouma going to be the link to points?
            I really doubt there is going to be much return from Son, but potential would put Son ahead of Bis.

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

              There you go, many are in the same exact situation.

                But yeah, many are wasting a transfer or taking a hit unnecessary, I agree.

                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  Oh def bud, I’ll be getting Kane in for Vardy.
                  But waiting a week.

    It's been tough braving the past few weeks using no chips when it feels like absolutely everyone else is. It went about as well as expected - now 22 points behind the rank I was 2 GWs ago which feels roughly about the value of BB + FH chips so I'm trying to remain philosophical despite big red arrows(100k - 195k). I stand by it and now just hoping for a lot of future BGW/DGW disruption to capitalise on, and a more reliable week to play TC.
    How did my fellow chip holders fare?

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

      I didn't use chips and rose 870k in 2 GWs 🙂

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

        My bad. Using my live rank, it's only 820k.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      43k to 107k, FH gw18, saved chips gw19. Not the end of the world.

    3. Uncle Gamst
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I used my first WC in GW16 to set up for GW8 & 19, so had tough decision to make once all the Covid postponements came in.

      I saved a transfer in GW17; keeping Son & Kane and in GW18 I took a 8 point hit for Salah, DCL, Alioski & Justin > KdB, Wilson, Stones & Cancelo.

      I should have gambled on Wilson > Antonio in GW19, despite there being doubts on his fitness but instead chose Wilson as a 'safer option'. I must admit that I haven't watched Newcastle this season so hadn't realised just how bad they are and the lack of service Wilson is receiving atm.

      Having said all this, I don't think I've done too badly with 44 in GW18 and 108 in GW19, increase in rank of 189,323

      The trick now is using my WC, FH, BB and TC to benefit from the hard slog during GW18 &19

    A Soucek to Gundogan

    Or
    B Mané and Soucek to Son and Gundogan for -4.

    Presently on

    Martinez
    Cancelo Dias Robertson
    Salah Mané Bruno Raphinha
    Bamford Watkins Antonio

    McCarthy Coufal Soucek Dallas

    1. Hotdogs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A. Not worth getting Son for a hit this week for Mane if you ask me

  4. Uns95
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Bench headache for the next game week, currently lined up as follows, any thoughts?

    Ederson
    Robertson Stones Shaw
    Gundogan Rashford Fernandes Son
    Kane Bamford Watkins

    Steer KWP Mitchell Mendy

  5. Hotdogs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Which is the best option for this week with 1FT?

    A. KDB > Gundogan (and get Salah after their spurs game)
    B. KDB > Salah
    C. Wilson > Antonio
    D. KDB > Gundogan and Wilson > Antonio for a hit

    Want to avoid hits so I'm tempted to go with A first but that means Salah next week and sticking with starting Wilson for a while

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Think would keep it simple and go A

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

      A

  6. Foolio
    • 8 Years

    I have a draft league starting today. Who would you say are top 5?
    1. Salah
    2. Fernandes
    3. Kane
    4. Son
    5. KDB?

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years

      Adams(bench atm) >>> Kane -4
      Or do it next week and
      A) Play Coufal
      B) Play Raphinia (have bamford)

    • Bojangles
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Gundogan or Foden ???????????

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

        Any thoughts?

      2. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Gundogan as more confident he starts- and on penalties

        1. Bojangles
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          but isnt Foden now a shoe in and possibly the new KDB?

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Not necessarily. Gundogan came in second half tonight and settled City team

            1. Bojangles
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Yes i take your point and i see him as great value but isnt Foden great value and will surely will be the attacking hearbeat of some great fixtures ?

              1. dunas_dog
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Yes he is but I just feel of the 2 Gundogan more nailed and on penalties

            2. Bojangles
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Head says Gundy heart says foden

    • Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Play DDG (SHU) over Martinez (bur), Y or N? Team ex-BB.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

      which one is better?

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years

        wow not much in it from my view.

    • Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Martinez
      Robertson / Cancelo / Coufal
      Salah / Fernandes / Gundogan / Raphinha
      Vardy* / Bamford / Antonio

      Forster // Soucek / Mitchell / Taylor*

      A) Bench Vardy, play Soucek
      B) Vardy > Kane (-4)
      C) Taylor > Stones (-4)
      D) Taylor > Dias (-4)

      B, C, D - all involve benching playing them & benching Vardy.

      Vardy can become Kane next week. Soucek or Raphinha can be upgraded next week too, but doing D would price me out of Kane AND Son, for example.

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Robbo to Dias in this gw and Vardy to Kane next gw imo

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I was going to write that option too but backed out. Robbo has got some decent-ish fixtures whilst Coufal has some tough ones (from a defensive standpoint). I sell Robbo and I have to play Coufal.

          Might get away with it in GW22 with Mitchell, but not ideal.

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

        C for me.It's worth the hit.

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

          I just saw that Vardy is on -97%.For my team it's not viable to have Fernandes,Son,Salah and Kane.I don't know uf you can do that.
          If not i think you must decide if you want Son or Kane.If you want Kane then A it's better.If you want Son i imagine you can downgrade Vardy and upgrade Raphinha to Son.I don't know if that makes sense.
          If you can get both of them in the next games then i think C it's worth it.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            With C, I can get Kane & Son on top of Salah/Fernandes, with 0.3m ITB.

            However it's likely Vardy will fall, & Kane will rise. Son may rise too (or a double rise/fall of the other.

            Its something I have to keep an eye on.

        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cheers on the C option folks.

        Main reason for Stones over Dias (taking comment on Son/Kane out of the equation)?

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

          Only because he is cheaper, honestly. Both are nailed at the moment and I don't think you are expecting an attacking return from either, so no point in spending more for the more expensive one.

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Thanks. I have noticed Dias has a better BPS baseline and tallies up a tad more than Stones.

            I'd like to tap into that, but I think Stones is fine for now I think Dias will outscore but don't want to price myself out of the Kane AND Son option, I think.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              I think. Lol.

    • Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Gundogan or Cancelo (-4) ? For the next three

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Cancelo feels like the better long-term investment..

        He may even have a higher floor given City CSs of late, but that's by no means a guarantee.

        Have a City defender already, or no? If yes, maybe Gundo just so there's hope he gets involved in the attacking play across the next three good fixtures.

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I'm doing WC25 and yes I already have Dias and Stones. Appreciate your help mate

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Ah on the case I'd go Gundogan.

            Tripe City defense is good, but 1 goal and its kaputt. Gundo has been doing well enough and may have pens so he's a good value option in theory. Nice to get a slice of any City goals.

      Thinking of doing the following for a - 4?

      Vardy & Soucek > Kane & Gundogan

      Yes or No?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Will certainly score against Saints. Good recent form for it.

            It is a tricky GW tbh
            I’m looking at the Hammers...

    • Nightf0x
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Vardy to

      A) kane (have son)
      B) watkins
      C) dcl
      D) ings
      E) cavani (have bruno).

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Gee I really want to take the punt on Cavani but think it's a touch too risky. Watkins probably for surety of starts and upcoming fixture catch up.

        Don't want to jinx my luck but feels great to survive this long. Must be getting tougher from now on but I am ready
        Thanks for running this TM

          Well done, even I'm still in. No chance to win though.

                Ah i see. I only played my FH so far so if I progress further I may consider saving something for later

        At first I was afraid, I was petrified
        Kept thinking I could never live without Stones in my side
        But then I spent so many nights thinking how Zouma did me wrong
        But I grew strong
        And I learned how to get along
        I will survive.

      Had an absolute shocker (80 points). What to do with this lot?

      Martinez,
      Alioski, Cresswell, Konsa
      Fernandes, Salah, Son, Grealish
      Antonio, Vardy*, Bamford
      Bench: Forster, Zouma, Taylor, Bissouma

      1FT. Just do Vardy to Kane? Or anything worth a hit?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years

        Vardy n zouma comedy team out.

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

        I would start Zouma if we have any positive news from Lampard,save ft and get Kane next gw.Then with 2 ft you could have the choice to sell Zouma (if he has lost his place-5.8 enough money to be in your bench).

        1. DycheDycheBaby
          • 5 Years

          That sounds sensible. Cheers

          Kane and Son it seems too much vs Liverpool but on the other hand Tottenham could score 2,3 goals.

      • 9 Years

      Can I just offer a bit of perspective:

      If I was to ask is KDB to Son a good move? most people would say ‘Yes’.

      If I was to ask is Stephens to Gundogan a good move? most people would say ‘Yes’.

      If I was to ask is KDB to Gundogan a good move? some people would say ‘It’s a trap’

      If I was to ask is Stephens to Son a good move? most people would say ‘Yes’

      But what if I was to say over 2 weeks the bottom 2 transfers and the top 2 transfers are exactly the same, except during the first week my transfer plays West Brom instead of Liverpool.

        I was promised perspective.

          I've broken your 4 day silence, I feel honoured

      3. LSK
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Lots are advocating for KDB to Gundogan, aren’t they? You’ll never get 100% consensus but in general it’s being looked at as being a good move.

        1. Aurora Borealis?
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Most people are which is good, but some people are saying its a trap. I guess my aim is for people to add what they intend to do with that money, or for them not to be misguided by people saying its a trap.

      with some FA cup results, do we know more about a possible Leeds DGW23? I think the fixture was LEE SOU

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Can no longer happen then, Saints' next round FA Cup is at that time.

      After watching FPL Blackbox I reckon Mark will bring in Sterling and captain him this week.

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

        He is also my captain atm.I think if Bruno gets a rest tomorrow though then it has to be him.

        1. LSK
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I think I would risk Sterling if I had him but that’s easy to say when speaking hypothetically. Bruno EO will be huge this week.

      Did kdb > gundo for free, now need to decide whether to make one of these moves for a hit. Feels wrong with 6m in the bank and three 5m mids in the starting 11.

      A. Vardy > Kane
      B. Soucek > rashford. (Vardy > Kane next gw.)

    • wulfranian
      • 4 Years

      Would you start Raphinha over Wood?

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

        I would, Villa's defence is the main factor for me.

      I get that it may have been worth taking a few hits for GW18/19 due to the BGW and DGW.

      Now that fixtures are back to normal, is it worth taking a -4 hit for a non-captain this week? (I own KdB and have 5M itb)

      1. Rog.
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Depends if you can field a decent 11

        1. POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I'll field 11 but looking at 4-3-3, ESR third mid; El Ghazi and KdB on the bench.
