De Bruyne crowned FPL King of the Gameweek

De Bruyne crowned FPL King of the Gameweek
Kevin De Bruyne’s phenomenal displays against Newcastle and Wolves have seen him named the Fantasy Premier League King of the Gameweek.

Manchester City took a huge step towards retaining the Premier League title with two victories in the space of three days, grabbing ten goals while conceding just once.

And the Belgian was instrumental in that success, which leaves City needing four points from our final two matches to guarantee the 2021/22 crown.

De Bruyne earned an astonishing 30 FPL points across the antepenultimate round of fixtures, the most of any player in the game so far this season.

City’s number 17 teed up Rodrigo for our third in a 5-0 triumph over Newcastle, seeing him end the afternoon with six points to his name.

However, the majority of the Belgian’s haul was earned thanks to his incredible individual performance at Molineux, with De Bruyne on target four times in a 5-1 victory over Wolves.

Adding to the 20 points he received for those goals, a 90-minute display and the maximum three-point bonus saw him end the night with an incredible tally of 24.

De Bruyne’s Gameweek 36 tally would have been even more astonishing had he not been booked in each match, taking two points off his total.

This is the midfielder’s second King of the Gameweek title this season, with a hat-trick in our 7-0 victory over Leeds back in December also seeing him claim the crown.

And he has been joined in the team by Raheem Sterling, who just misses out on the crown despite earning a hugely impressive 28 points thanks to three goals and one assist against Newcastle and Wolves.

The City duo are the two highest-scoring players across the whole of Gameweek 36 with eight more points than any other Premier League player.

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