Kevin De Bruyne Highlights Importance of Manchester City Grinding Out Results Despite Recent Difficulties

Kevin De Bruyne has highlighted the importance of Manchester City's ability to grind out results, despite specific below par performances and challenging circumstances in recent weeks.

If there’s one theory that always comes true in the case of Premier League champion teams in recent seasons, it is their ability to pull wins out of the bag, while not necessarily being at their scintillating best.

Kevin De Bruyne concluded, “We have been able to do that quite a few times over the years but that doesn’t make it any easier.”

Unlike their current Premier League title rivals, it is this Manchester City side's ridiculous level of consistency over a large stretch of matches that places them in a commanding position in the league table at present.
