Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne returns to action

Mon 17 May 2021 | 14:25

The Belgium international will be in action for his side in the two remaining Premier League matches, after being out for the last two games due to a muscle injury.

Kevin De Bruyne

is back in training sessions with

Manchester City

, reducing fears of him missing out on the Champions League final.

The 29-year-old, who will represent his country for Euro 2020, did not feature for City in their last two games as he was struggling with a muscle injury.

However, he will be part of the squad that will travel to Brighton as they get ready for the Champions League final against

Chelsea

.

"

Kevin has trained the last two days and he feels good,"

manager Pep Guardiola said.

"Kevin is important like everyone. When we are able to stick together and push each other, it will be possible to win [the Champions League].

"Everyone is in the same level. We’ll see what his level is, he’s fit and ready to play."

City were named the Premier League champions last week when Manchester United were defeated at the hands of Leicester.

"

The mood is really good - they’ve been training really well and everyone is focused,"

the City boss added of his squad.

"People know they have to maintain their rhythm to play the final in the best condition as possible, and on the day off people relax and then we focus in training."

When asked whether Chelsea having bigger games was an advantage, Guardiola added:

"I’m only concerned about what we have to do - to prepare as best as possible. It’s not my business.

"We’ll have six days to focus on the final after Everton. Now it is Brighton. We won’t be ready if we don’t prepare for Brighton. I didn’t speak one second about Chelsea.

"Tomorrow we’ll play to win again and this is the best way to arrive to the final. In the six days [after the final game], we’ll be more focused on Chelsea."
