Manchester City will host Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night in a top-of-the-table clash.
The current champions currently sit third in the Premier League, seven points behind the visitors after a difficult festive period.
Pep Guardiola witnessed his side get beat in successive games, making it three defeats in their last five matches.
However, it appears the Citizens could be boosted by some huge news that has emerged ahead of the encounter with Liverpool.
The Belgium international made his initial return at the beginning of December but had to spend further time on the sidelines but has been progressing well in training.
Guardiola revealed that a decision would be made ahead of the game on whether the midfielder would feature.
De Bruyne’s availability for the Liverpool game will come as huge news for Guardiola and Manchester City.
The Belgian has been crucial for the Citizens during his time at the Etihad Stadium and his absence throughout the campaign has been evident.
There is a feeling that this game could decide who wins the Premier League title and getting the three points will be extremely important.
