Kevin De Bruyne: Still hoping to make his mark at Stamford Bridge

Kevin De Bruyne: Still hoping to make his mark at Stamford Bridge

The Belgium international was signed by the Blues last summer, but was loaned out to Werder Bremen before making a competitive appearance.

He is to spend the entire 2012/13 campaign in the Bundesliga picking up valuable experience, with it hoped that he will return to Stamford Bridge ready to challenge for a starting berth.

De Bruyne insists he is not about to give up on his Premier League dream and is looking forward to heading back to England.

The 21-year-old is, however, aware that he faces fierce competition for places at Chelsea and that he may be forced to head back out on loan next season in order to get minutes under his belt.

"I am definitely going to spend pre-season with Chelsea. After that, we will see what happens," De Bruyne told Kreiszeitung Syke.

"I know it will be very tough for me to accept being just a substitute. I know I would become extremely unhappy.

"I want to play every match and if that doesn't happen at Chelsea, then perhaps I will have to find a club that are a bit lower in standard."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
