Kevin de Bruyne has been left out of the Manchester City squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Fulham.
Pep Guardiola’s side can move top of the league with a victory at Craven Cottage following Wednesday’s crashing 4-1 win over leaders Arsenal.
De Bruyne was in sublime form that evening, scoring twice against the Gunners and providing an assist but was not named in the 18-man squad for their trip to London.
Sky Sports report the Belgium international is ‘not fully fit’ for Sunday’s clash with City facing a huge Champions League showdown away to Real Madrid on Tuesday.
De Bruyne has scored nine and provided 27 assists in all competitions this season with City hoping to clinch a sensational treble.
A win over Fulham today will see them tighten their grip on the Premier League title while they are also heavy favourites to beat Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final.
Inter Milan or AC Milan await should they reach the final while Manchester United await in the FA Cup final on 3 June.
