- Kevin De Bruyne produced a virtuoso performance as Man City defeated Arsenal
- But the Belgian’s media obligations meant his missed post-match celebrations
- De Bruyne claimed his side ‘could have scored more’ in win over their title rivals
Kevin De Bruyne lamented missing out on Manchester City’s post-match celebrations following their win over Arsenal on Wednesday.
The Belgian was pivotal to the host’s success at the Etihad, scoring after just seven minutes to give his side the lead before assisting John Stones to add a second goal before half-time.
De Bruyne would double his personal tally after the interval, before Erling Haaland put an end to any hope of a comeback from Mikel Arteta’s side with his 33rd Premier League goal of the season.
However, despite his exploits putting the Citizens one step closer to retaining the Premier League title the 31-year-old would not be immediately able to join his teammates following their victory.
Speaking to the Daily Star after his Man-of-the-Match-winning performance, De Bruyne revealed his media obligations had meant that he was alone by the time he returned to the dressing room.

De Bruyne scored twice as Pep Guardiola’s side closed the gap on their title rivals
‘To be fair, by doing about 15 interviews. When I got back to the dressing room, most of the team was gone.’
The Belgium international added that by capitalising on Arsenal’s defensive vulnerabilities, his side were unfortunate not to have scored more goals against their title rivals.
‘There is more space in behind with Arsenal as they go to man to man. That meant there was more opportunities for me to run into the space and get the ball. I think we created enough chances.
’I just try to play the best football I can. It was fine, picking the right moments to go in behind and I think we really hurt them in that first half on occasions. We could have scored more.’
City now sit just two points behind the Gunners with two games in hand as we approach the climax of the campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side will look to continue their seemingly unstoppable form when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday.
