City Stars

Kevin De Bruyne (£12m) displayed particularly impressive form at home last season, earning a team-high 115 points at the Etihad at an average of 8.7 points per start. 

The Belgian scored 15 goals and provided eight assists across his 30 Premier League appearances.

Joao Cancelo (£7m) is another player who shone in front of the home fans in 2021/22, producing points returns in 12 of his 18 home starts.

The full-back registered five assists and recorded 10 clean sheets, whilst also claiming nine bonus points.

And, Erling Haaland (£11.6m) is proving to be a popular pick this week following his two-goal showing against West Ham. 

The 22-year-old has been transferred in by 954,000 people ahead of Bournemouth's visit to the Etihad, which is 400,000 more than any other player this week.

His price has climbed £0.1m as a result of his popularity.


An Aston Villa side boasting the seventh-most selected player in Leon Bailey (£5m) host Everton in Saturday's early kick-off. The winger is in 17.2% of squads on the back of three goals and two assists in pre-season.

Former City man Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.1m) is the most-bought defender in Gamweek Two, earning 545,000+ new owners after his 12-point haul at Crystal Palace in Gameweek One, leading to a price rise of £0.1m.

Another former City player, Jack Harrison (£6m), stood out on the opening day, creating a league-high six chances and claiming an assist as Leeds United beat Wolves 2-1. The Yorkshire side travel to Southampton this time out. 

Aleksandar Mitrovic's (£6.6m) price has risen £0.1m following his brace against Liverpool in Gameweek One. The striker is the third most-bought player in Gameweek Two ahead of Fulham's trip to Wolves.

Dejan Kulusevski (£8.1m) earned 13 points in Gameweek One and that's prompted 321,000+ people to transfer him in ahead of Spurs' trip to Chelsea.
