Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed why Kevin De Bruyne didn’t feature in the 2-1 win at Fulham on Sunday.

Having scored twice and assisted another in the 4-1 win over Arsenal on Wednesday, De Bruyne wasn’t fit enough to travel to Fulham.

Speaking at Craven Cottage prior to kick-off, Guardiola said of De Bruyne: “He doesn’t feel good. He has an injury and could not travel.” Guardiola also would not put a timescale on the midfielder’s return.
