Not Kevin too!? Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne was absent from Belgium’s training session today through injury, but it doesn’t sound like something to worry too much about.
De Bruyne was seen nursing a sore hamstring at the conclusion of City’s win over Chelsea, and according to the reliable Kristof Terreur of HLN it has persisted long enough to keep him out of training, along with a host of other big names.
All minor issues by the way.

As Kristof says, this is a minor injury and unlike Vincent Kompany’s injury, shouldn’t keep the flame-haired midfielder out for too long.
The City Watch Player of the Month for September, De Bruyne has been in scintillating form, winning praise from Pep Guardiola and even Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who called him “the complete player”.
KDB scored two goals and notched up four assists in September, but his contributions go far beyond his productive stats nowadays, with the 26-year-old completing more tackles and passing better than at any other point in his career.
