Five players to replace De Bruyne in your Fantasy Premier League team

Given the recent injury to Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, who will be out of action for 10 weeks, every Fantasy Premier League player will need to consider suitable replacements.

The attacker has picked up a good points tally (105) in his debut campaign so far with five goals and another nine assists as he is the highest earning midfielder in the squad.

However, with De Bruyne out for such a long time, selling him will earn you quite a bit of money to further your options in search of the perfect alternative.

It’s too bad the Belgium international will be unavailable given that City face 19th place Sunderland, with the match likely to see goals.

There are a few straightforward replacements and some risky choices, but all that depends on how much you want to gamble in order to see your selection pay off.

So, here are five Fantasy Premier League players you should consider as an alternative to injured Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.

David Silva

The first choice is none other than Kevin De Bruyne’s teammate David Silva (9.9), who is likely to become the main attacking playmaker with the Belgian star unavailable for selection.

Given that De Bruyne is now worth (10.6), his sale will likely reward you with enough points to make a like-for-like trade for Silva. With a match against Sunderland coming up, this could be a very beneficial choice.

Christian Eriksen

Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen (8.4) could be another good shout given his form from his previous two matches. He picked up 15 points two weeks ago and was rewarded with another seven this past weekend.

He also has very similar stats to Kevin De Bruyne, with the Denmark international scoring four goals while providing another eight assists. Eriksen will be hoping he can continue his performance when Spurs travel to face Norwich in the next round of fixtures.

Willian

Willian Prove

Chelsea star Willian (7.1) has been one of the standout performers for his side this season despite their shocking form so far. With the Blues slowly finding their form in recent weeks, Willian could play a key role in their revival.

The Brazilian attacker has already scored three goals while providing another seven assists this term and is a much cheaper alternative to Kevin De Bruyne who is now worth (10.6). Willian will see his side take on Watford away from home as they look to pick up another three points.

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino (7.9) is a very interesting selection given that manager Jurgen Klopp has been playing him as a forward in recent weeks. He racked up 18 points in Gameweek 23, adding to his tally of five goals and five assists so far.

Despite the fact that his side will face league leaders Leicester City, having him in your team could be a safe bet given that the Reds play 19th place Sunderland and 20th place Aston Villa following their trip to the King Power Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez

Finally, Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez (10.8) could be a tough transfer if you don’t have any funds left in your bank given that he is worth (0.2) more than Kevin De Bruyne.

The Chilean attacker will be keen on getting back to his scoring ways after finally returning to full fitness following an injury spell. He featured for 34 minutes against Chelsea at the weekend and was a constant threat for the Gunners. Sanchez has so far registered six goals while providing another two assists this season.
