Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) proved a huge threat as ever for Man City in Gameweek 4, however the Belgian star for once did not manage an attacking return as his side were held 1-1 away at Leeds. Gareth Bale (£9.5m) is not yet match fit and as such did not feature as Spurs secured a sensational 1-6 win against Man Utd at Old Trafford.

Man City host Arsenal in Gameweek 5, whilst Spurs welcome West Ham to North London. De Bruyne has question marks hanging over him regarding his fitness after international duty with Belgium, whilst Bale has been in full training with Spurs over the same period of time. When taking the prices of the two players and fixtures into account, Bale could well be the shrewd option in this head-to-head.

Verdict: Gareth Bale
