Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has revealed Kevin De Bruyne should be available for selection for the upcoming matches, after an injury scare in his side's 5-0 victory over Newcastle United.
De Bruyne played the entire match and picked a knock with Guardiola admitting he was worried when the midfielder went down towards the end of the clash following a heavy challenge by Danny Rose. But the City boss believes the midfielder should be fine ahead of the cup clash against Arsenal.
"I was trembling. That was scary. But after the third goal, he made two big runs and I thought OK he is fit," Guardiola told the club's official website.
“I haven’t spoken to him because of social distancing. We have two or three locker rooms. The doctor hasn’t said anything to me."
"This game is about winning, that’s all. We did it in the recent past. We are in a good position in the Premier League, scoring a lot of goals. That’s the way we want to play, for our people. Respecting the game of football. That’s it. And prepare well for Arsenal and the second leg for Madrid."
