​De Bruyne says Man City will continue to thrive despite injuries

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne insists that City have enough strength in depth to deal with their injury problems.

City have recently lost key players Benjamin Mendy and Sergio Aguero to injuries, but they managed to claim a crucial 1-0 win at current champions Chelsea on Saturday.

De Bruyne, who scored an impressive winner in the game for his side, said: "We will miss the guys, but I think our team is strong enough to show that they are ready. That's our strong point from the beginning of the season. Everybody who came in, the substitutes, did really well. It shows that everybody is ready to play.

"Obviously if you get injuries it's always unfortunate to lose somebody for nine months, especially for him, it's bad. Mendy sent us a message before the game.

"He's a crazy guy, he was like doing a bit what Pep does before the game, in the meeting. It was just funny, it's just the way he is, everybody loves him.

"Also for Sergio, if you have a car crash, it's unfortunate, there's nothing you can do about it. Luckily, he's okay."
