Manchester City ace Kevin De Bruyne has revealed his desire to clinch the Premier League title against Manchester United next month; however, has admitted overcoming Everton beforehand will be a tough test.
The Citizens currently hold a 16-point advantage over the second-placed Red Devils, meaning six more points while sentencing their rivals to defeat would crown Pep Guardiola's outfit champions.
And while the Belgium international has admitted to Sky Sports he, his teammates and their supporters would love nothing more than to clinch the title against Jose Mourinho's side; they are well aware of the roadblocks en route, including the international break.

"Obviously I'm very satisfied with the way I'm playing, I feel I'm playing really well. But I don't need to score or give assists, I just need to do my thing to help us win games and in the end I will be very happy.
"David is unbelievable to play alongside, he's very underrated, and that means a lot considering his standards."
