I haven’t checked the FPL website, let’s look…
you can update your profile that’s all, I Don’t think squads can be built until two weeks prior to the start.
I think I will be avoiding de Bruyne this term. I’ll employ Pope again though despite the slight increase.
Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) £11.5m
The Manchester City playmaker has earned a significant price rise after finishing as the top-scoring player in FPL last season.
De Bruyne was available for £9.5m at the beginning of 2019/20 and went on to produce 251 points.
The Belgian supplied 23 assists, more than any other player, and also scored 13 goals.
Having taken over penalty duties for Pep Guardiola’s side, De Bruyne may well surpass his FPL points total from last season in 2020/21
Bruno Fernandes (MUN) £10.5m
The Manchester United midfielder has risen £2.5m thanks to his impact during the second half of last season.
The Portuguese will now cost managers £10.5m after averaging 8.4 points per match, more than any other player in 2019/20.
Similar to De Bruyne, though, his dominance of set-pieces, along with his role as his team’s first-choice penalty-taker, means Fernandes can be worth the extra outlay.
Mohamed Salah (LIV) £12.0m
Salah has had a price drop for the new season.
The Liverpool winger, who remains a midfielder in FPL, has dipped from his opening value of £12.5m in the previous campaign.
Salah finished as the second-highest scoring player in 2019/20 FPL, tallying 233 points.
And the underlying numbers suggest the Egyptian will be a big captaincy favourite for many managers again.
Salah’s 132 shots and 110 shots in the penalty area were both league-leading totals in 2019/20.
Nick Pope (BUR) £5.5m
Last season’s top player for points-per-million value has earned a price hike.
Starting 2019/20 at just £4.5m, the Burnley No 1 ended as the top-scoring goalkeeper with 170 points.
Despite his move out of the budget bracket to £5.5m, Pope may tempt managers to invest again.
Only three defenders surpassed his points haul in 2019/20 FPL.
