GW4 Ones to watch: Kevin De Bruyne

The Scout says Man City playmaker can extend his fine start to 2019/20 at home to Brighton

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 4 of Fantasy Premier League.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £9.7m

The Manchester City playmaker has enjoyed an excellent start to the new season.

De Bruyne has supplied four assists in the opening three Gameweeks, already surpassing his total of three assists from an injury-hit 2018/19 campaign.

That has helped him to 23 points, placing the Belgian third among FPL midfielders behind fellow big-hitters Raheem Sterling (£12.2m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m).

The underlying statistics further highlight De Bruyne's influence on the champions' attack.

Eye for goal

His total of 14 chances created is more than any other player in FPL.

Indeed, that tally is double the seven key passes of Man City's second-top creator, Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m).

The Belgian's eye for goal is also underlined by his eight shots, level with team-mate Sergio Aguero (£12.0m).

De Bruyne's opening displays have caught the eye of FPL managers.

He is the third most-bought midfielder in the Gameweek, transferred in by over 183,000 managers.

Brighton opportunity

A home encounter with Brighton & Hove Albion can immediately reward that show of faith.

The Seagulls travel to the Etihad Stadium on the back of a 2-0 home defeat by Southampton last weekend.

That looks encouraging for Man City, whose totals of 10 goals and 63 shots are both more than any other side.

As a key figure for Pep Guardiola's men, De Bruyne can deliver another big-points haul and strengthen his claim as a must-have for FPL managers.
