Kevin De Bruyne has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the match against Everton but also the one against PSG in the Champions League.
Second in the Premier League 3 points behind Chelsea, Manchester City welcomes Everton Sunday at 3 p.m. The Citizens will try to win to continue to follow the pace imposed by the Blues.
Most Pep Guardiola will have to do without Kevin De Bruyne. The Spanish technician indeed announced at a press conference that his playmaker tested positive for Covid-19 with his selection. Even if the Belgian international (88 caps, 23 goals) is not at his best this season (3 goals, 1 assist in 14 games), he remains a major element of the Skyblues system and capable of unlocking a match on its own. He was also decisive in the two matches he played with the Belgium during the international break.
PEP 💬 We have Jack getting better after he went to the national team. Phil Foden came back with a knock and a problem in his leg, but he is getting better. And unfortunately Kevin got a positive covid test in Belgium and needs ten days.

The number 17 of the reigning England champions will also be absent for the reception of the Paris Saint Germain Wednesday in the Champions League. Fortunately for City, Guardiola has a very large squad and should manage to make up for the absence of the man at the top. 108 assists under the sky blue jersey.
