When quizzed by Jermaine Jenas about his relationship with Mourinho, De Bruyne, not usually in regular dialogue with his managers, said it was "distant" and that he only spoke with the Portuguese boss twice.

Liverpool issued a public apology to City after the unsavoury scenes prior to the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, which Jurgen Klopp's side won 3-0.

But Salah's total of 37 goals in 42 appearances this season threatens to deprive De Bruyne of individual honours to go with City's trophy haul.

When it came to the POTY vote, the Belgian midfielder was of course unable to vote for himself, or anyone else on his team - and instead gave his vote to the one player who's likely to run him closest for the accolade. "To maintain the level in the amount of games I have played, the amount of minutes, I am very pleased with that".

A win of any sort for Pep Guardiola's men this evening would guarantee them the Premier League title.

The wounds sustained by losing De Bruyne are healing.

He and Liverpool's Mo Salah have been the stand-out players in the Premier League this season - yet neither sparked with Mourinho.

It must have been that time he spent as a Chelsea player, eh? "The thing I am most happy about is that I can play nearly every game, nearly every minute without any problems and play at a level that is constantly good or high".

"Every time we get a player who hits the big heights everybody makes out that the likes of Real Madrid and PSG are looking at our players". We need to focus on Saturday [against Manchester United] and then we will try everything in our power to get a result against Liverpool.

"I don't look at what happened before". I think Juergen is a master at buying players he really needs for the way they want to play.
