The Belgian midfielder joined City in 2015 on a six year contract. Since then he has been on fire for City as he has made a total appearance of 143 games, and scored 35 goals. He helped them lift the 2017-18 Premier League title, with the highest point total in Premier League history.

Kevin de Bruyne returning to training will be a big boost for City as Sergio Aguero had a foot injury which was sustained back in September. Meanwhile, Benjamin Mendy and Fabian Delph are still recovering from their knee injuries.
