Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne hopes to play the Manchester derby. De Bruyne sustained an injury on his right knee during training in August and hasn’t played since then.
Manchester City host Manchester United on November 11 and the Belgian hopes to be fit before that match. Speaking at the launch of FIFA 19, De Bruyne said, “I still need three, four, five weeks, but I’m getting there. 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 is just after Manchester City play Liverpool. City have some relatively easy matches before they take on Liverpool. In de Bruyne’s absence, Manchester City started their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 home defeat to Lyon.
City’s next Premier League fixture is against Cardiff City.
