With the return of the King Kevin De Bruyne, anything seems possible for Manchester City. Since his return from hamstring surgery City’s inspirational midfielder has been in sparkling form as he aims to help his side defend the treble they famously won last season.
With Kevin De Bruyne back in the side, Pep Guardiola’s side is a different beast entirely. While they are still a quality outfit without the inspirational midfielder De Bruyne brings an extra bit of quality to the treble winners. That quality was on display during his match-winning cameo in City’s 3-2 win over Newcastle in the middle of January. It was also evident in the champions’ 3-1 win over Burnley last week.
With De Bruyne back in the side anything appears possible for Manchester City. The possibility of Pep Guardiola’s side defending the treble is a real possibility. It would be a monumental achievement if City were to conquer that mountain but with the King De Bruyne back in the fold the feat could be a possibility for Pep Guardiola’s side.
In an interview published on mancity.com Manchester City keeper Ederson spoke of how happy the Manchester City squad are to have De Bruyne back. Ederson said: “It’s just like chess – you have to protect the king (De Bruyne) Now we have our ‘king’ back, one of the best assisters in Premier League history, third in the list now. We’re so happy to have him back and playing good football, especially after such a long time out. He’s a player that our team missed a lot because he has such ability – he finds passes that very few players can find.”
Anything seems possible for Manchester City with De Bruyne back. If he continues his strong form there’s no telling what Manchester City could achieve this season.
