Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne has come out to say that playing as a striker vs Chelsea was bizarre. KDB recently revealed that even if he has done it a few times in his career, it still felt a bit weird for him.
According to him, since the club has so many forwards out, he just had to do his possible best to help the team seal the maximum points in a big game.
He added that the win vs Chelsea was very important and he is happy the players took their chances.
His words, “Bit bizarre in the beginning, I’ve done it a few times in my career obviously we have a lot of forwards out and the coach asked me to do this job, so I tried my best to do it as good as possible.”
“I think after five or 10 minutes we found our rhythm – the beginning was a bit lacking and I was in a bit of a different role today but after that we played very well. We took our chances at the right time and defensively were solid for 90 minutes. It’s a shame we conceded that goal in the last minute.
“We have different players so we play different this year so we have adjusted to our personnel, but the team is finding more rhythm in the last month we are playing better. When we had chances today we took them and leading 3-0 at half-time meant we could play more realistic in the second half.”
“It’s important that we win one of these big games. This season we have played some good games but not won any of them so today we have shown we can win the big games,”
“We’re still fighting an uphill battle but we are getting closer, that’s all we can do now.
“The years we were champions we were winning these big games – it’s a bit different this year because everyone is losing points. We had a bad start but we are coming back a bit so it’s a good thing we’re here fighting and that’s all we can do now.
“I don’t really have an explanation for [the strange results this season] – it is what it is. Every game we play there’s never a feeling it’s going to be easy. You need to be here 100 per cent for every game. If you’re only at 95% then you’re not going to win the game and that’s what a lot of teams have done this year.”
