Kevin De Bruyne Explains New Man City Tactics

Kevin De Bruyne believes that Manchester City may need to adjust their playing style during the upcoming Premier League season as teams will change their tactics when facing the Citizens.

The Blues were almost unstoppable last year, despite De Bruyne missing a large chunk of the campaign through injury, becoming the first team to complete the domestic treble in England.

City managed to score 168 goals across all competitions and De Bruyne feels that teams will start to change their tactics in order to counter the threat Pep Guardiola’s men pose.

As a result, City themselves may have to adjust how they play in order to break sides down.

“Obviously teams are going to play differently, maybe even more defensively than they did, so we may have to learn how to break things down in a different way,” he told

“That’s what we did last year differently to the previous season.

“That’s something that will come along the way, it’s not something that you can really prepare for now,” De Bruyne added.

Guardiola’s men had no trouble finding a way past West Ham on the opening weekend of the Premier League, with Raheem Sterling scoring a hat-trick in the 5-0 win.

After another excellent start to the campaign, De Bruyne feels that City must continue to keep their standards high, rather than improve on last year’s performance levels.

The Belgian said: “You can always improve but the main thing you must do as a team is stay constant.

“To improve is more individual, but as a team to do much, much better than we did in the last two years is nearly impossible.”
