Guardiola made a surprise decision. It put De Bruyne on the bench. He has recorded 12 assists in 20 league games this season. But De Bruyne started off the bench that day. When he warmed up, he served as a catcher for his teammates.
British media The Sun said, ‘De Bruyne went down to the bench. Before the match against Tottenham, he was pushed into a warm-up role and looked miserable. He was caught dying after conceding the opening goal to Tottenham. He had a somber face. De Bruyne is recognized as one of the greatest players on the planet. However, Guardiola excluded him from the selection against Tottenham. Guardiola has stood his ground. However, in the 14th minute of the second half, De Bruyne was eventually put in. Unfortunately, De Bruyne could not save the team from defeat’.
