Kevin De Bruyne injury update

The Mirror on Sunday have an update on Kevin De Bruyne, and it’s worrying for the Sky Blues.

It’s reported that the Man City medics are monitoring Kevin De Bruyne on a day-to-day basis and are taking no chances with his fitness.

De Bruyne does not expect to be fully fit for another month, yet he could feature against Rotherham in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Mirror believe that Pep Guardiola is focused on having De Bruyne fit for the Champions League knockout phase:

Manchester City are taking no chances with Kevin De Bruyne’s fitness as Pep Guardiola plans an assault on the Champions League.

De Bruyne could play some part when City meet Rotherham in the FA Cup and a decision will then be taken on his availability to face Burton in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.
