Kevin De Bruyne is of the opinion that Manchester City deserved their place in the final of the Carabao Cup after a 3-2 win at Bristol City.
Goals from Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and De Bruyne secured a 5-3 aggregate triumph and manager Pep Guardiola’s first cup final in English football.
“Very pleased. We played a very good game. They had two chances with the long balls and it’s a little bit of a shame that they score two times but today we were very good,” De Bruyne said.
“We didn’t really give them opportunities and in the end we scored in the last minute.
“We came here, we knew the crowd would be up for it but we managed to keep them quiet. We controlled the game very well and especially in the first half they didn’t get any chances.
“After the 2-0 they were going to play long balls and in the end I think we deserved to go to Wembley.”
“The club is trying to reach another level that wasn’t in the past with [Roberto] Mancini, with [Manuel] Pellegrini they achieve that and we try to keep going in that level.
“We are so happy. We played an amazing game.”
