Manchester City may have lost to Liverpool in the Premier League race, but star midfielder Kevin de Bruyne thinks Pep Guardiola's team can still make their season an unbelievable one, by winning the FA Cup and UEFA Champions League.
De Bruyne admitted they knew it was impossible for the team to catch Liverpool in the title race and Reds were better this year, as he said [via Goal], "We knew it was impossible [to catch them after lockdown]. You are always disappointed when you don’t win, but I think we are honest enough to say Liverpool were better this year."
The City midfielder opined they played well, but weren't good enough, and also suggested they have a lot to play for in the upcoming matches. He said, "I think we worked really hard, we played really well but we weren’t good enough and that’s no problem for us to admit. If everything goes to plan for us then I think we still have 13 or 14 games, so we still have a lot to play for and a lot of objectives.”
Liverpool have been utterly dominant in the Premier League this season, but Manchester City's second-place in the points table also means they have been the second best team in England, as the Belgian international said, "In comparison with a lot of other teams we are doing alright. We are still second, so that means after Liverpool we are the second best team."
The midfielder further opined City can still make the ongoing season an unbelievable one by winning the FA Cup and Champions League as he concluded, "I think we have still got big chances in the FA Cup and Champions League. Imagine if we come out after winning these cups, it will be an unbelievable season. We have got a lot to play for and look forward to it.”
