Will Kevin De Bruyne’s return from injury affect Ilkay Gundogan’s FPL form?

Ilkay Gundogan (£6.2m) has been one of the unexpected success stories of 2020/21 in Fantasy Premier League.

Having never previously hit double figures for attacking returns in a single campaign, the German has plundered 11 goals and three assists in his last 15 appearances.

His ownership now sits 37.5% in FPL overall, with that figure rising to 91% in the top 10,000.

Poring over the comments on this site and beyond, it’s evident that some Fantasy managers are pondering about the implications of Kevin De Bruyne‘s (£11.8m) recent return from injury.

We’ll take a brief look at how Gundogan has performed with and without the Belgian of late in this Premium Members piece.

    Disregarding price is Rudiger necessarily a better choice than Azpi? No particular sign of rotation so far.

    Price really is irrelevant to me

      Tuchel loves him. Wanted him at PSG. At a lower price than Azpi, Rudiger makes more sense I think.

      Price might not matter now but if there is little between them I go for the cheaper one as 3 moves down the line you might need the dosh saved.

      Best Mee Replacement? I have Martinez, Dallas Cancelo, Dias and Coufal

        Someone for GW29?
        Maybe save FT and have more options after this GW.

          That's a pretty solid defence so I'd go for Dan burn and save some money
