De Bruyne Unworried About Arsenal After Community Shield Loss

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne is unconcerned about Arsenal in the Premier League title competition, despite Arsenal’s victory in the Community Shield.
Kevin De Bruyne is not concerned about Arsenal in the title race, according to him.

De Bruyne maintains that ‘eight or nine’ teams are capable of winning the league.

Sunday, Arsenal defeated City on penalties to claim the Community Shield.

Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City has stated that he is not concerned about Arsenal in the Premier League title competition this season.

Arsenal led the table for the majority of the 2016–17 campaign, but ultimately finished five points behind City, who were crowned champions for the third consecutive season.

The Gunners defeated City on penalties to win the Community Shield, but De Bruyne, who missed a penalty during the shootout, maintains that it would be erroneous to focus on Mikel Arteta’s team because ‘eight or nine’ other teams have a chance of winning the league.

According to the Manchester Evening News, De Bruyne stated, “There’s about eight or nine teams so I’m not worried about them. We just do what we have to do.”

Reflecting on City’s performance, De Bruyne acknowledged it was aggravating to concede a’stupid goal’ late in the match when Leandro Trossard equalized for Arsenal with a deflected shot.

De Bruyne stated that eight or nine teams possess the ability to win the division.

He stated:

“Everybody needs to get sharper but we played OK and we had some chances to score and in the end what can you do? It’s a deflection, it’s a stupid goal.”

City, who are seeking a record-setting fourth consecutive title, is aware that they will undoubtedly face fierce competition this season.

For instance, Arsenal has strengthened its roster by acquiring Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber, and Kai Havertz.

Meanwhile, Manchester United has acquired Andre Onana, Mason Mount, and Rasmus Hojlund.

Liverpool finished fifth last season, but with the additions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, Jurgen Klopp’s squad will be hoping for a much stronger showing this year.

It has also been a busy summer for Chelsea, who are attempting to rebuild under Mauricio Pochettino, and Tottenham, where Ange Postecoglou has taken over as manager.

Moreover, Newcastle will be encouraged by their participation in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s City squad has lost Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez, but they have acquired Josko Gvardiol and Mateo Kovacic.


Mikel Arteta’s squad claimed the Community Shield and will attempt to contend for the championship once more.
