    Not sure, it is a bit of a balancing act, he did a lot of work in the WC so we don't want him back with his batteries at 30% but we also want him well drilled again with this seasons tactics/players and such.

    He had obvious fatigue problems last season, he even said so himself! In fact, he's probably been overplayed every season he's been here.
    I think with the emerging youth we have, as well as the increased fluidity of the system we're going to playing this year, to provide cover and support, we might see one of Kev's most relentless seasons yet.

    Kompany and Delph in the training video so they must have volunteered to come back early :)

    Bernardo will be playing inside by the looks of it with Mahrez coming so with foden as well we’re well stocked for attacking midfield rotation options

    They will likely feel the competition more? Some of the youngsters, like Eric Garcia, have shone in pre-season.

    KDB, Walker and Sterling should stroll back into the first team.

    Kevin De Bruyne's agent has confirmed the Belgian will return to Manchester City training next Monday - but plans to be at Wembley beforehand to watch the team face Chelsea.
