Best Fernandes replacements
Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £12.0m

Manchester City’s playmaker has two goals and 19 points over his last two outings.

Son Heung-min (TOT) £10.2m

The Tottenham Hotspur star has averaged 7.3 points per match this season.

Kai Havertz (CHE) £8.1m

Expected to play as a “false nine”, Chelsea’s German faces each of the bottom three teams in successive Gameweeks.

Raphinha (LEE) £6.7m

Leeds United’s Brazilian has scored in three of his last six Gameweek appearances. 

Bryan Mbeumo (BRE) £5.6m
