Premier League?! De Bruyne Of Man City To Make A Comeback Against Leeds In The English Premier League - This Is Insane!

Pep Guardiola has dropped a bombshell, revealing that Kevin De Bruyne may soon rejoin Manchester City’s lineup for their upcoming match against Leeds on Saturday. De Bruyne was hampered by a mysterious injury in their triumph over Arsenal on April 26, causing him to sit out during City’s recent victories against Fulham and West Ham. However, according to Guardiola, he was back in training on Thursday, and the team leader is willing to put him straight back in the game if he meets fitness criteria. “He trained yesterday, trained good. Today we train and we decide after training,” he reported to reporters on Friday.

Guardiola asserted that losing or missing one week or ten days at this stage in the season isn’t an issue. The same occurred with Nathan Ake. If he’s fit, he can play.” City, aiming for their fifth title in six years, could pull four points ahead of second-ranked Arsenal, albeit temporarily, if they defeat Leeds. The Gunners’ trip to third-placed Newcastle on Sunday could be a defining moment in the title race. City, who are pursuing a treble, have the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals against Real Madrid looming on Tuesday.

Guardiola stated that Tuesday’s game would not be a factor when deciding how to handle De Bruyne’s comeback to the team. “There’s a lot of games and a lot of tension,” Guardiola said. “I see the team really tired after the demands from West Ham and Fulham. I have to see how the players recover, just three days from the previous game. I will be focused on how they are physically and mentally for this game. After, Madrid. The Premier League is so nice, it’s important to go four points in front of Arsenal, really important.”

Later on Saturday, City will be against Sam Allardyce when the 68-year-old coaches Leeds for their first time. The former coach of Everton and Newcastle was employed by Leeds this week to keep their Premier League status. The Yorkshire club is one point ahead of the relegation zone on goal difference. “Always there is an impact of a new manager on the players for the first one or two games,” Guardiola said. “Every team is playing for important things. Of course, for Leeds to stay here, the impact is always huge. We don’t have any info; we will have to adapt quick after five, ten minutes. We can imagine what he tries to do. It’s a massive, important game for us.”
