This article is part of our FPL Waiver Wire series.
Raheem Sterling was a talking point in this article last week, and this time it's Kevin De Bruyne after news of a groin injury surfaced midweek. The midfielder missed Tuesday's match, but more importantly for FPL, no timeline for a return was released. Given that he's the most popular midfielder on close to 45% of teams, moves will have to be made ahead of Gameweek 8.
Riyad Mahrez is technically a differential because he's only on four percent of teams as of Wednesday, but that number will undoubtedly rise in the coming days. He's started City's last four matches, producing three goals and three assists, the best rate of anyone on the team. With four favorable matches ahead of the trip to Liverpool, there's no harm in turning to Mahrez at a discount. The other news that came out midweek was a possible ban for Bernardo Silva, which makes Mahrez and Sterling more likely to feature in upcoming matches. If, for some reason, you want to look elsewhere to replace De Bruyne, Son Heung-Min is almost the same price and faces Brighton and Watford in the next two matches. John McGinn is another player who continues to make things happen, though a one-for-one replacement would leave you with some leftover cash.
Teemu Pukki is the second-most owned player in the game, and his price continues to rise even after a couple down outings. He's a reasonable player to hold onto with matches against Villa and Bournemouth ahead,
