Man City attacker Kevin De Bruyne happy with preseason form

Manchester City attacker Kevin De Bruyne is happy with his preseason.

The Belgium midfielder, the key player in City's 2018 title victory, played only a bit-part in last season's treble success due to knee and muscular injuries.

De Bruyne, who scored a goal and set up another in Saturday's 3-1 win over sister club Yokohama F Marinos in Japan, said: "I'm fine. What happened last year happens to everybody. I have been a professional for 11 years now and had one season where I had some injuries.

"But by the end of the year I still played 32 games while a lot of players only do that every year. I just get on with it.

"Now I feel good. I'm happy I could play a whole pre-season. I've played four games."
