Man City star De Bruyne: No underestimating Liverpool

Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne says they go to Liverpool on Sunday full of confidence.

City broke an 18-year hoodoo by winning away at Jurgen Klopp's side in 2021 and took a point from a pulsating fixture last season.

De Bruyne, who has nine assists already this term, put that down to trusting their own game in what is usually a febrile atmosphere. Normally billed as a title clash, Liverpool are 13 points adrift of the Premier League champions with a game in hand.

"The last few years we have done well. Maybe we have more control of the game," De Bruyne said. "They are more of an up and down team and we are a team who has more control of the game.

"If you can control that style of play then maybe you have more of a chance.. Last year I thought we played great but we didn't win. Sometimes it goes that way.

"I expect them to be the best Liverpool possible. Obviously they lost some points but they are still Liverpool and I expect them to be good - that's the only way I see it."
