Pep Guardiola has provided an injury update on Kevin De Bruyne, after being given an injury scare in City’s 5-0 win over Newcastle on Wednesday. De Bruyne went down after a heavy challenge by Danny Rose at the end of the game.

Speaking about De Bruyne, Guardiola told the official club website: “I was trembling. That was scary. But after the third goal he made two big runs and I thought OK he is fit.

“I haven’t spoken to him because of social distancing. We have two or three locker rooms.

“The doctor hasn’t said anything to me.”

The midfielder played full 90 minutes against Newcastle and provided one assist.
