De Bruyne came in first XI for the first time this season
Guardiola can count on his best player again.
The leader of Manchester City, Kevin de Bruyne, came out in the starting line-up of the Premier League match only for the first time after 19 matchdays.
The 27-year-old Belgian tried to help his partners to return to the winning trail in the away match with Leicester, but the Citizens lost it (1:2). Recall that City also sensationally lost the battle with Crystal Palace in the previous round (2:3), allowing Liverpool to come off at 6 points.
De Bruyne suffered from injuries on both knees, which is why he missed more than 3 months. The playmaker was recognized as the best player of Manchester City and got into the symbolic team of the Premier League at the end of last season.
