Man City vs Chelsea: De Bruyne reveals expectations from Tuchel’s men

Manchester City playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne has revealed his expectation from Chelsea when Pep Guardiola’s side face the Blues in the Premier League.

Man City will clash with Chelsea in a Premier League fixture at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

But De Bruyne expects Thomas Tuchel’s side to give Man City a ‘big test’ during the match.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Friday, the Belgium international said: “It is exciting. I think you always want to play in the biggest games.

“We had so many battles over the years where we have won and they have won a couple of games in the Premier League and Champions League.

“You always want to be on top and that is what we want to do tomorrow.

“It is a big game. They have been playing really well lately. I saw the Liverpool game (2-2 Premier League draw) and a little bit of the first Tottenham game (2-0 Carabao Cup win), so they have been in a good rhythm.

“I expect them to give us a big test.”

The kick-off time for the game is 1.30 pm.
