Title race will go to the wire, says Manchester City’s De Bruyne

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne expects the Premier League title race to go down to the wire as the champions battle to beat Liverpool to the trophy.

De Bruyne’s double helped City to a crucial 4-1 victory against arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s side are six points clear of second-placed Liverpool, but the Reds have a game in hand and visit the Etihad Stadium for a seismic showdown with City on April 10.

De Bruyne has no doubt Liverpool will push City all the way to the finish line in a rerun of the 2019 title race, which Guardiola’s men won on the last day of the season after reeling off 14 successive victories.

“I’d say it looks similar for the moment. Both teams have been doing so well, but we push each other. We’re both great teams,” De Bruyne said.

Asked if the Liverpool clash will be decisive, De Bruyne said: “Yes, it could be, but it’s so far away, there’s a lot of important games in between.

“A lot can change between now and then. We can lose games or they can, so I’m not necessarily watching out now for that game.

“It never stops, does it? But it’s good. We push each other to be the best version we can be. All we can do as a team and as individuals is try to win every game.

“Hopefully in the end we’ll win it, but there’s still a long way to go.” (AFP)
