Man City ace Kevin de Bruyne: Liverpool clash do or die

Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne says today's clash at Liverpool could be decisive in the title race.

The ice-cool Belgian knows the champions need a calm front to lap up the red-hot atmosphere.

De Bruyne, 28, said: “You need to stay calm. If you get nervous and anxious, they smell it. It's kill or be killed.

“When Liverpool get that atmosphere, it gives them a nudge and for the other team, it gives a feeling of nervousness.

“If you are calm, collected and play maturely, sometimes you overcome it.

“That's the most difficult and important thing."
