De Bruyne out to blow title race open by shocking Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

Kevin De Bruyne believes Manchester City can blow the title race wide open tonight with victory at Chelsea .

Wins for City and Tottenham tonight would see Chelsea’s lead at the top cut to four points, with the pressure piling up on Antonio Conte and his players.

Chelsea have played without pressure for much of the season and De Bruyne suggested doubt could could creep in if their lead is cut further.

“If they lose and Tottenham win, then maybe they have a little bit of pressure that they haven’t had throughout the whole season until now,” said De Bruyne.

“In the end, you don’t want the pressure that you’ve not had all season.”

City can reduce to eight points the gap between them and Chelsea with a win tonight, with De Bruyne insisting they have not given up on the title.

“Even if it’s very difficult, it’s still possible mathematically,” said the City midfielder.

“Obviously it’s going to be very difficult, but as long as nothing is given away it’s still possible.
