Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is optimistic that Kevin De Bruyne could make his latest injury return against Liverpool on Thursday.

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Kevin De Bruyne remains in contention for Manchester City's Premier League title showdown with Liverpool.

The Belgian playmaker sat out Sunday's trip to Southampton with a muscular injury and only returned to full training on Wednesday.

De Bruyne has managed just nine appearances this term due to a couple of knee injuries, but Guardiola remains optimistic that the 27-year-old could make his latest comeback against Liverpool.

"He trained today," he told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "Tomorrow we need to have another check in the morning, but he's much better."

De Bruyne was voted City's Player of the Season in 2017-18 after playing a direct part in 24 Premier League goals.
