The Scout says the Man City playmaker has three matches in next two Gameweeks to deliver big points

The return of Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m) from injury hands Fantasy Premier League managers an intriguing option in midfield.

The Manchester City playmaker stepped up his recovery with a goal and an assist in their 5-0 FA Cup win over Burnley at the weekend.

De Bruyne is one of four Differentials selected by The Scout for Gameweek 24 ahead of the Tuesday 29 January, 18:45 GMT deadline.

Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £9.7m

The Belgian is free from injury ahead of his trip to Newcastle United.

De Bruyne earned his first 90-minute outing of the season in Gameweek 23, creating four chances in a 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town.

Owned by just 4.1 per cent, he also can be a major differential for City’s Double Gameweek 25 matches against Arsenal and Everton.

Harvey Barnes (LEI) £5.5m

Recalled from a loan at West Bromwich Albion, the young attacking midfielder was handed his first league start in Gameweek 23.

Barnes marked the occasion with an assist in the 4-3 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers, and his three attempts on the day were bettered by only one team-mate.

Owned by less than 0.1 per cent of managers, Barnes travels to face a Liverpool defence who conceded three goals at home to Crystal Palace in their last match at Anfield.

Alexandre Lacazette (ARS) £9.3m

The Arsenal striker was in more than 900,000 FPL squads at his peak in Gameweek 10.

He has lost nearly two thirds of his ownership since then, but has rewarded the 6.4 per cent who have remained loyal with two goals in his last three starts.

Lacazette had a successful outing against Cardiff City earlier this season, scoring and providing an assist to earn 12 points in Gameweek 4.

Ryan Babel (FUL) £5.5m

The January signing from Besiktas impressed on his Fulham debut in Gameweek 23's 2-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur.

Babel fired in a team-leading three shots on goal in that match but still only has a 0.1 per cent ownership.

That highlights his attacking threat for the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion, a side with only one clean sheet away from home all season.
