Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has named Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku as a massive threat for Manchester City ahead of today’s Premier League clash.

“(Lukaku) is a massive threat. I have known Rom since I was 15 or 16 years-old and he has always been a good friend of mine,” De Bruyne said.

“He scores a lot of goals, he is very dangerous, so I know we are going to have a handful with him.

“Hopefully we can keep him quiet for this game, then after he can play as good as he wants!”

Lukaku is in good form ahead of today’s game against Manchester City as he has scored in his last two Premier League games for Chelsea.

Meanwhile, former England midfielder Fara Williams, has urged Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to drop Lukaku for this weekend’s clash against league leaders Manchester City. According to Fara, the Belgian is desperate to impress the fans and may end up not performing well against Pep Guardiola’s side.

“I think Kai Havertz could be a better shout against Man City than Lukaku,” the ex-England and Everton star said on Premier League productions.

“It’s hard to say that because, look, if you were to ask me earlier on in the season who to start, when Lukaku was in form and scoring goals, it would be easy.

“So of course it would be a big decision but Lukaku looks like a player lacking confidence. He looks like a player who is desperate to show he wants to be there.

“He was so desperate against Tottenham to show Chelsea fans that he wanted to be there but in that desperation you don’t perform. When you put too much expectation on yourself it can be hard to deliver.

“He was working hard off the ball which we haven’t seen often but that’s not his game.

“Whilst he’s in that frame of mind where he’s trying to prove to the fans, his team-mates and the board that he does want to stay and that the interview was a mistake, it might be better not to play.

“I feel like he’s not at the levels that Havertz is at right now and Chelsea need everyone at their best to beat Man City.”
