Kevin De Bruyne could be set to make his comeback from his knee injury at the beginning of next month.
The Belgian international suffered a knock in his left knee during 2-0 win against Fulham in the round of 16 Carabao cup fixture. He started the game, but was replaced by Claudio Gomes late in the match after Timothy Fosu-Mensah accidentally landed heavily on De Bruyne’s knee and the Belgian initially wasn’t able to stand up.
De Bruyne was ruled out for five-six weeks, but is known to be a fast healer and could be back against the Bournemouth game or against Watford away in early December.
According to Dail Mail, the Belgian ace is desperate to be back and make himself fully available against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 8.
In his lengthy absence, however, Manchester City have managed just fine.
