De Gea makes early strides in popularity contest

Man Utd star is already the most-owned goalkeeper in FPL as The Scout's shotstopper watchlist continues

With the launch of Fantasy Premier League, The Scout continues his watchlist of goalkeeper picks. 

David De Gea (Man Utd) £5.5m

Having been signed by 25.3% of managers De Gea is already the most in-demand goalkeeper in FPL.

Despite the price tag, he is still the cheapest member of Jose Mourinho’s first-choice defence and unlikely to suffer from rotation.

The Red Devils were joint-top with Tottenham Hotspur for clean sheets in 2016/17, with 17 shutouts.

De Gea faces only one of last season’s top-six sides in the opening nine Gameweeks, when Liverpool visit in Gameweek 8.
