As Manchester City take on West Ham United in the Carabao Cup Last 16 this evening, with Pep Guardiola’s side aiming to win the competition for the fifth time in a row, many Sky Blues have been left unimpressed with the fist half performance of Kevin De Bruyne.
City, currently flying in the Premier League and in a strong European position, also have their eyes on clinching yet another Carabao Cup.
Guardiola’s men have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea, Aston Villa and Tottenham in that order since 2017/2018 and could make it a fifth this season if they manage to get past high-flying West Ham at the London Stadium.
In good form themselves, David Moyes’ side will be no pushovers and they’ve proved it so far – having given City a fairly tough test in east London.
The Sky Blues, playing a fairly second string side with the likes of Cole Palmer, Nathan Ake, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Zack Steffen handed starts, also certainly have the talent to get through this test.
One of the star men who hasn’t impressed so far though is De Bruyne, with the Belgian yet to truly influence proceedings akin to how he has over the past few seasons.
Some City supporters also believe he is yet to hit his best form so far this season, find all of their verdicts on his first half showing down below.
Man City fans slam De Bruyne…

“De Bruyne has been very sloppy this opening 20 mins.”
