Kevin De Bruyne seems to have finally kicked off that rust after returning after an injury recently. The Belgian wizard has played well the last three matches and he believes its a testament to the defense taking the pressure off the attacker.

Let’s see what he said-

“It’s easier for us (attackers) when we don’t concede.

“I think it’s always important when you’re stable as a defence and as a team, it gives the whole team confidence.”

“It’s really nice for Ederson and the defenders, they’re there to try and stop the goals and I think the guys up front and in the middle try to stay in shape to help them whenever we can.”

“We were patient in the beginning and when we scored the two goals it gave us a little bit of a cover knowing they had to come out a little bit more,” he said.

“I think we controlled the game and we had a few chances also in the second half.

“The second half was a little bit less, but that’s understandable with the games we’ve played and with a 4-0 aggregate.”

“If they’re not there we try to maintain a good shape and come into good positions.”

The good spirits De Bruyne is in will be crucial to making a deep run in all the competitions, so I’m glad o see it.
