Two midfielders set to meet on Sunday could be major differentials for Fantasy Premier League managers in Gameweek 1.
Aaron Ramsey (£7.5m) is owned by only one per cent of managers ahead of Friday's 19.00 BST deadline. His average of 5.4 points per match last season was bettered by only five other midfielders.
While De Bruyne is backed by 28.3 per cent of managers, only two per cent have opted for Sterling, who was the second-highest scoring player in FPL last season.
He could compete for a role on the right wing with new arrival Riyad Mahrez (£9.0m).
Azpilicueta is owned by 16.3 per cent while 15.9 per cent of managers have Alonso.
Both finished among the top three scoring defenders in each of the last two seasons. But that was playing in a wing-back system under Antonio Conte.
They have occupied traditional full-back roles during recent friendlies in new head coach Maurizio Sarri's preferred 4-3-3 formation.
