Reports are out claiming that Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was impressed with the performances of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling in the 4-1 Capital One Cup win over Sunderland.
Both Bruyne and Sterling scored a goal each and the former Liverpool man was also involved in Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone’s own-goal when his strike deflected the post and bounced in off the Italian.
“Kevin is a very good player and Raheem played very well also,” Pellegrini said of the expensive summer arrivals.
“He scored two goals and it was useful for both players to be settled in our team.
“It is not easy at the beginning to make the correct movements but both of them demonstrated why they are here.”
