Why Kevin de Bruyne is left out of Man City squad for Fulham clash

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.
