Bruno Fernandes

With Bruno Fernandes out for injury, here is the potential replacement in FPL

Bruno Fernandes’s presence on the pitch has been pivotal for Manchester United lately as the Red Devils aim for the Champions League spot. His influence for the Old Trafford-based team was so obvious that in the latest outing without Bruno, United were crushed 4-0 by Crystal Palace. 

Bruno’s absence is not only concerning for United on the pitch but also for millions of FPL users around the world. His fitness concern has emerged since United beat Coventry City in the FA Cup semi-final weeks ago. 

Erik Ten Hag hoped that Bruno could return to the game soon

United manager, Erik Ten Hag said that he and his side are pushing hard for the player to get his feet back on the pitch in the near future. The former Ajax manager said: “After the game, we had an issue with Bruno. He will do his best to be available.”

With Bruno being sidelined, here are the potential replacements for the Portuguese in this week’s FPL.

Phil Foden

The regarded Manchester City’s future captain has been impressive despite missing three of the last five games for his team. In his last three appearances, Foden has gained a total of 41 points, quite a bargain for a player with a £8.4 million tag. Having scored 16 goals in 32 matches, The Citizens are likely to rely on the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year for the club’s three final league games this season.  

Anthony Gordon

The Scouser has been an integral part of Newcastle United’s impressive run this season. Appearing in 33 league games for The Magpies, Gordon scored 10 goals and helped Newcastle fight for the European zone. With only £6.4 million on the price, Gordon has gained 131 points during the home games for his team, and 44 on the road. 

Son Heung-min

The departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich has left Son as the one to rely on for Tottenham Hotspur. The South Korean is worth considering with £9.9 million and has scored 17 goals in 32 outings for Spurs. 

Cole Palmer

Chelsea would have not been in the mid table of the Premier League if it were not for Palmer. The 30 percent of The Blues’ league goals so far came from the former Manchester City player (21/70). FPL users can consider putting Palmer on their lineup with only £6.2m on the price tag.   

Noni Madueke

Another of Chelsea’s outstanding performers this season. Despite not being as prolific as Palmer in terms of scoring, Madueke could be an alternative for a decent midfielding point-booster in the FPL. He gained 15 and 13 points in FPL from his last two league appearances for Chelsea.
