GW7 Ones to watch: Kevin De Bruyne

The Scout says a huge drop in ownership makes Man City midfielder a tempting option

The Scout is tipping five players to produce big points in Gameweek 7 of Fantasy Premier League.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £11.5m

The Manchester City midfielder has suffered heavy sales following his absence against Arsenal in Gameweek 5.

De Bruyne had been moved on by more than 2.12 million managers in the lead-up to last Friday’s Gameweek 6 deadline.

But having returned to action off the bench against West Ham United last weekend, he now offers managers a big-hitting option for Gameweek 7.

De Bruyne is found in only 15.3 per cent of squads ahead of a visit to Sheffield United.

By comparison, the most popular premium midfielders, Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.4m), are owned by 56.2 per cent and 47.6 per cent respectively.

Favoured opponents

The Belgian’s displays against Sheff Utd last season suggest he can rival Son and Salah for returns.

He was involved in all three of Man City’s goals in their two meetings in 2019/20, scoring once and supplying two assists.

Sheff Utd’s poor defensive record this season also lifts De Bruyne’s appeal.

They are among only two sides who have failed to keep a clean sheet in the first six Gameweeks.

The 29-year-old's midweek display against Marseille in the UEFA Champions League also looks ominous for Sheff Utd but promising for FPL managers.

He supplied two assists in a 3-0 away win after returning to the Man City starting XI on Tuesday.

De Bruyne can build on that performance and reward those in search of an alternative premium option for Gameweek 7.
