My position has changed under Guardiola - Man City playmaker De Bruyne

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he is playing in a much different position under new manager Pep Guardiola this season.

The Belgium international says that he has become more of a creator under the Spanish manager and will be tasked with providing for the team's more noted goalscorer.

Regarding City's and his own form ahead of Saturday's derby with Manchester United, De Bruyne told Sky Sports: "It has been a good three weeks for us.

"The way we try to play is very positive and it's really enjoyable for the players to play in this kind of system, where you play nice football. It helps also when you win.

"My position is totally different from last year. It's not too defensive, but I know I will be more of a creator but have to help my team-mates up front more to get them the ball.

"They will do more of the finishing this year but I really enjoy it so far."
