Manchester City’s Belgium import Kevin De Bruyne has said that the team will not play a defensive game when they square up against city rivals Manchester United in the English Premier League on Sunday.

United are two points behind the Citizens who lead the table in the EPL with 21 points from 9 games and De Bruyne says they are not ready to submit the advantage any time soon.

The24-year-old says the team will not alter its attack-based playing pattern in the game against Louis Van Gaal’s side.

“We shouldn’t play defensive because our main strength lies going forward, though we need to stay disciplined. We know it will be difficult,” De Bruyne told the club’s official website.

“Manchester United have been a top team for a long time and the rivalry between us and them obviously runs deep, but the season is very long.

“That said, we know what it means to our supporters and it would be nice if we could go there and get three points. If you win it’s nice for everyone and that’s what we’ll be trying to do.

“If you take a point or even lose, it’s not ideal but there are still almost 30 games to go so this result won’t be the deciding factor in who wins the title. There are still many points to be won and lost in the coming months.”

City will be looking to redeem their image at Old Trafford where they were last beaten 4-2 in April.
