The Scout reckons Man City playmaker is back to his best for trip to Crystal Palace

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 34 of Fantasy Premier League, ahead of Friday's 19:00 BST deadline.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £9.7m

Manchester City’s playmaker is set for a strong end to what has been a disappointing FPL season for the Belgian.

De Bruyne has started only nine Gameweeks due to injury, returning two goals and an assist.

But his performance against Cardiff City in his last Premier League match signalled a return to form.

De Bruyne scored in a 2-0 win over the Bluebirds and produced 11 FPL points, his highest haul of the season.

Growing influence

His underlying statistics also look very promising.

De Bruyne has created 17 chances for team-mates over his last four matches, a total that sits second among all players in FPL.

He has created a scoring chance every 18 minutes during that period, almost half his average of 35 minutes beforehand, so his influence is increasing.

Having featured as a late substitute in Man City's midweek UEFA Champions League clash with Tottenham Hotspur, De Bruyne looks set to return to the starting line-up away at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Low ownership

The Eagles have lacked resilience against top-half opponents at Selhurst Park.

Indeed, five of their six clean sheets at home have been recorded against teams in the bottom seven places.

Owned by only 3.6 per cent, De Bruyne can be a powerful differential as Pep Guardiola’s side push for the title.
