De Bruyne sees absolutely everything - Guardiola.



Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has heaped praise on Kevin De Bruyne after the Belgium international's fine display against Bournemouth.

The former Chelsea and Wolfsburg attacking midfielder is a player that "see's absolutely everything" on the pitch and the Citizens are lucky to have him, according to Guardiola - whose side have won eight out of eight matches in all competitions following their 4-0 win over the Cherries.

De Bruyne opened the scoring 15 minutes into the game at the Etihad stadium with a sublime free-kick that went underneath the jumping wall and he also assisted Ilkay Gundogan in scoring the fourth goal on the day after Kelechi Iheanacho and Raheem Sterling found the net.

However, Guardiola is delighted to have the in-form 25-year-old in his side.

"He [De Bruyne] understands the game, he's physically strong," the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach said as FourFourTwo reported.

"[He is] aggressive without the ball but especially with the ball, it's clear he sees absolutely everything. And in front of goal he can make passes, score goals. We are so, so lucky we have Kevin with us."

Vincent Kompany was one of the unused substitutes against Eddie Howe's side as the Man City captain nears return from a groin injury.

"I think hopefully Vincent can start to play, to make the first steps," the Spaniard said of Komoany.

"Hopefully he can help us. We need the whole squad to compete in all the competitions," he added, as City prepare for four successive away matches.
