Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne eyes mid-November return

Injured Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne expects to be fit for the derby against United on November 11.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a superb campaign for title-winning City last season but has been out since August after suffering a knee injury in training.

However, speaking at the launch of FIFA 19 on Thursday, De Bruyne said he has the derby date in his sights – and could even be back sooner.

“I still need three, four, five weeks, but I’m getting there,” said De Bruyne.

“Hopefully I can be back soon, help the team, and perform well.

“I’m hoping to be back after the next international break. I think I will be back for the derby.”

The next international break follows Manchester City’s trip to Liverpool on October 7.

City then have games against Burnley, Tottenham, Southampton – plus two against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League – before they take on neighbours United.
