Portuguese is the second most-bought player as managers make moves after Man City team-mate is ruled out

The popularity of Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) has soared in Fantasy Premier League ahead of Friday’s 19:00 BST deadline.

The Manchester City midfielder is the second most-bought player in Gameweek 36, earning 110,000+ transfers in for his trip to Burnley.

Bernardo has been a big performer for Pep Guardiola’s side in recent away matches.

The 24-year-old has recorded double-figure returns in his last two away starts.

That includes his 11-point haul in the derby win at Manchester United in midweek.

Past success

Bernardo has already profited against Burnley earlier in the season, scoring in a 5-0 win in Gameweek 9.

And his influence could be vital after Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m) was ruled out of Sunday’s encounter.

The Belgian is the third most-sold player in the Gameweek after being injured in the first match of his Double Gameweek 35.

Over 89,000 managers have moved De Bruyne out, with 14,000 of them making the direct swap to Bernardo.

The Portuguese's away form suggests his new owners can be immediately rewarded this weekend.
