‘We were seven points behind last season’ – De Bruyne warns Liverpool that Man City are far from fin

Kevin De Bruyne has reminded those writing Manchester City off that they fell seven points off the pace last season before staging a stirring fightback to beat Liverpool to the Premier League title.

The Blues have already slipped five points adrift of the Reds in 2019-20.

Pep Guardiola’s side have only taken in five games, but have suffered uncharacteristic wobbles during a home draw with Tottenham and a shock 3-2 defeat away at Norwich.

Liverpool, in contrast, remain faultless at the top of the table and are already being billed by some as champions in waiting.

De Bruyne says it is far too early to be making such bold predictions, with City having shown in the past that they have the stomach for a fight when major silverware is on the line.

The Belgium international midfielder said in the wake of a stunning reversal at Carrow Road: “Last season we were seven points behind – it happens.

“Of course we want to win every game but it is difficult.

“You have to respect the other team and when they do well. They do well and that is it.

“It will be tough, the next seven months, like last year. It never stops. It is our job and sometimes it is hard but you have to take it on the chin.

“We lost four games out of 38 last season and that is a good record. We can still win this season with the same points at the end of this season.”
