Man City boss Guardiola: De Bruyne not injured

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expects Kevin De Bruyne to travel with his teammates for their upcoming game.

The Citizens take on AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend, with De Bruyne likely to play some part.

The Belgian has been struggling with a recurrence of the hamstring injury that caused him to miss so much of the season already.

“[De Bruyne is] good, he's not injured," Guardiola told reporters.

“I don't know if [he's] 100 per cent, I think we took a good decision to not take the risk.

“I know people will ask why he didn't play but we took a decision because he didn't feel comfortable."

City will, however, be without duo Jack Grealish and Josko Gvardiol for the game against the Cherries.
