FPL experts: De Bruyne can outscore Haaland

The Scout's panel debate who will be the top-scoring player in Gameweek 10

Erling Haaland (£12.2m) has quickly established himself as the go-to captain for millions of managers each Gameweek in Fantasy Premier League.

TV Info

The Manchester City forward has scored 14 goals and supplied three assists in his first eight appearances of his debut Fantasy campaign. 

Haaland has amassed 96 points, establishing a huge 40-point advantage over his nearest rival Harry Kane (£11.4m), at the top of the player standings.

A home meeting with Southampton lifts the Norwegian's prospects of scoring a fourth successive home hat-trick this weekend.

However, it is worth noting Haaland has only been the top-scoring player in two of the eight Gameweeks of action in 2022/23.

GW Player Top score Haaland
1 Schar 15 pts 13 pts
2 Jesus 19 pts 5 pts
3 Odegaard 16 pts 6 pts
4 Firmino 22 pts 17 pts
5 Haaland 17 pts 17 pts
6 Rashford 18 pts 9 pts
8 Son 19 pts 6 pts
9 Haaland 23 pts 23 pts

The Scout's panel of FPL experts look at the players who could outscore Haaland in Gameweek 10.

What the experts say
Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

Having been rested in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, I am expecting big things from Kevin De Bruyne (£12.4m). He has returned in each of his last three Premier League matches and is first amongst midfielders for creativity in the ICT index. He has averaged 6.4 points per match against Southampton and has returned in four of his last five meetings with them.

Man City at home to Southampton this weekend is the standout fixture of the week. Both De Bruyne and Phil Foden (£8.1m) look like great picks.

However, Jack Grealish (£6.8m) is arguably playing some of the best football of his career at the moment. He was unlucky not to return in Gameweek 8 and his second-biggest FPL haul came against Southampton in 2021/22 Fantasy, when he registered a goal, two assists and two bonus, totalling 15 points. I think he could be this week's top-scoring player outside of Haaland.

I think Chelsea will win comfortably against Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Raheem Sterling (£10.0m) being among the goals. I fancy him for two returns this Gameweek.

I'm tipping Foden to have a big weekend after his night off in Europe this midweek. He has the form linking up with Haaland and opponents Southampton are yet to keep a clean sheet this season.

I'm sticking with the Haaland fixture and will be looking at De Bruyne to go big after his rest.

I reckon Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) will haul against Leeds United on Sunday. Crystal Palace look a great attacking side, who were unlucky to lose to Chelsea last week.

Zaha is the focal point of the attack, on penalties and therefore my tip for the highest points scorer in Gameweek 10.
