Man City goalscorer De Bruyne: I know we can go up a level

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne says they possess another gear after victory over Bournemouth.

De Bruyne struck in the 4-0 rout on Saturday.

"Obviously the circumstances are hard, it's so hot, the pitch wasn't great which makes it all the more difficult," he said.

"But leading 3-0 fairly quickly in the half makes it easy and even in the second half they were defending so deep.

"We didn't give too much away but I think we can still go up a level."

On his goal, De Bruyne remarked: "He (Lloyd Kelly) was backing off and he was closing more the outside so I saw the little gap, tried it and it went in.

"When I was young I tried everything and I got told off a lot of times.

"It's important to do inside and outside with both feet because it can help and today it did help."
