De Bruyne named FPL King of the Gameweek

Kevin De Bruyne’s performance in our 7-0 win over Leeds United has seen him crowned the Fantasy Premier League King of the Gameweek.

The Belgian was at the forefront of an imperious City performance, with his 16-point FPL haul the highest of any Premier League player across the latest round of fixtures.

His two goals against Leeds earned him ten points, while a further three were added to his total by virtue of him playing the full 90 minutes and helping to preserve a clean sheet.


Unsurprisingly, De Bruyne was also awarded the maximum three bonus points for his exploits, bringing his final total to an impressive 16.

He was joined in the FPL team of the week by John Stones and Phil Foden, who each earned 12 points apiece, as well as Riyad Mahrez, whose goal and assist saw him claim 13.

Incredibly, at least one of Pep Guardiola’s men has now featured in the FPL team of the week for a seventh round in succession.

De Bruyne becomes the third City player to be named King of the Gameweek this season, with Ferran Torres and Joao Cancelo the others to claim the prize.

It’s also his second appearance in the FPL team of the week after previously making the cut with an 11-point haul in our 2-0 win over Burnley in October.


His overall total points haul for the season now stands at 47 in 11 matches, accumulating an impressive average of 4.2 FPL points per appearance so far this campaign.

Congratulations to Kevin on being named FPL King of the Gameweek!
