The beard and the haircut are different. But that could have changed
I was thinking you were talking about the fight... The wild guess, and I have no arguments to support it:
that night when the great holy knights was killed:
Eleanor: I'm sorry captain (Meliodas disappears and falls in a profound sleep.)
Merlin hits Eleanor in the eye trying to safe her Captain,
Eleanor: You lustful bitch ...

English release is taking some time. So I asked Sharogy from Easygoingscans to translated this page. He translated the page with out reading the whole chapter. Here his kind reply:

So I guess that the "old friend" makes Koen assumptions right.
So, it is very likely Escanor.
I agree with k-dom that a traitorous sin would be good for the scenario. I'd like to know why he joined Henricksen. But never say never: the seven deadly sins might be very loyal to each other. Escanor will have a certain reason for his strange acts.
now i'm 50-50 on if he is really Escanor or King just know him before the fairy forest was destroyed hmmm...
but betrayal is a good starting point but the question is for what reason the one of the SINS betray Meliodias?

I kind of agree. I am not certain either.
It looks like Helbram might be another fairy. He knows King's first name and I could not believe that Escanor would make comments about King's new name and his sin.
Anyway, it might make sense because Helbram, a fairy might know about that demon's power...
I rather would say the theory of Escanor doesn't really work anymore. Instead, I would think he is another fairy that had some grudge with King.
I'm still unsure as to how he benefits from all of this though, if he isn't one of the 2 people in charge of the knights or leading the kingdom.
It is still 50/50 between other acquaintance( Fairy King's Forest resident) and Escanor, but it points to the former most strongly for me because of his numerous use and reference of King's true name and title.
From the way Helbram talks of Chastiefol and King's low stamina, it doesn't look like he's a Fairy himself. For example, if Helbram really is a former resident of the Fairy Realm, then King should've expected him to know of Chastiefol's ability to regenerate and not underestimate the Legendary Weapon. Then again, curiously he does appear to have similar powers to King.
King clearly thought that he could beat Helbram: "do you really think you can hold me back by yourself?". But now he discovers that Helbram is much more powerful than what he thought. So, or this Helbram is not the Helbram King knew (he's only using Helbram's armour), or he increased his own powers possibly by drinking Demon blood.
Now I don't see why a sin in the present time wouldn't be able to know about King's real name. After all, if old friend is Escanor, and 10 years has passed since his betrayal (assuming that he betrayed the sins) he could come to know much more about all the sins during that time. So, what are you talking about guys? Can someone elaborate more that point?
Now, in deep old friend seems to have some kind of grudge with King, but his sarcastic description of King's stamina and powers is much more appropriate of someone who belongs to a different race: "less stamina than a human but with stronger powers?...etc"
Finally, I'm curious about why the knights didn't go for the other sins, but only for Meliodas, his sword and Eli.... As if the other sins were not a problem for their plan.
