Kevin De Bruyne believes patience was key to Manchester City’s win over Marseille.

The Citizens have celebrated a 3 – 0 victory over the Champions League rivals on Tuesday night, with Ferran Torres, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling scoring the winning goals for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Despite the French club’s pressure, City managed to reach their three points in the European top tier.

“We tried to play the way we always play,” said De Bruyne.

“I know it’s very difficult because obviously all the teams lately adapt to us, they play five in the back and four in midfield.

“So it’s not easy, you have to show patience, but I think we did really well and we scored the goals at the right time, so that was really important.”

Then he added: “To come here and play a good game, score three goals and keep a clean sheet is very important and I think we knew if we won today we would have six points and it’s a good step for us to advance and now we can go on to the next game.”
