Manchester City: De Bruyne keen on more goals

Manchester City record signing Kevin De Bruyne is hopeful to continue his goalscoring run with the Premier League leaders.

The Belgian playmaker, who joined City in a £54million move from Wolfburg this summer, wants to score more as he hopes to continue finding the back of the net.

De Bruyne has scored four goals in his last five games for the Etihad outfit, who are two points clear at the top of the table.

“I am on a good run at the moment and obviously I want to try to keep on scoring,” the 24-year-old forward told Sky Sports.

“But there will come a time when I will not score that often and that’s not a problem for me as long as I put in the good performances, it is fine.”

Sergio Aguero, who has been ruled out for a month due to a hamstring injury suffered while being on an international duty with Argentina.

De Bruyne has insisted the Citizens have to be able to cope with the absence of the injured Argentine star when they host AFC Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

“He is one of the best strikers in the world and was obviously creating a lot of chances, scored five in the last game [a 6-1 win over Newcastle] and now we are without him,” he added.

“We will try to put in good performances without him and he’ll be happy when he gets back.”
