Pep Guardiola was full of praise for Kevin De Bruyne as he returned to form in their 7-0 thrashing of Leeds with the midfielder scoring a brace. De Bruyne has had an unusually slow start to the Premier League season with injuries and a positive coronavirus test. The Belgian looked back to his mercurial best with a stunning second goal that helped City to their seventh consecutive win.
“Kevin trained well the last two days. Against Wolves, he lacked rhythm, but it is not easy to come back [after Covid-19].” Pep Guardiola said about Kevin De Bruyne. “In these types of games, that are a bit more open and they put a lot of players in front, Kevin is the best. We are really pleased he is coming back because we need him. He struggled at the start of the season but hopefully, now he can maintain this rhythm longer.”
“We did a really good game. We dropped five points against Leeds last season, and it was the same guys today, apart from Jack,” he added. “It was a good game, but the stadium was phenomenal. It was sold out and the players felt it. Thank you so much.”
“This is the worst performance in the four years. At no moment were we able to balance the game. The sensation we gave off was that anything they attempted we couldn’t prevent.” Man City boss Pep Guardiola said. “It’s not that City played very well – it’s a lot more noticeable how badly we played than how well City played. City play like this all the time, or similar to it, but we have never played so badly in these four years.”
