The 22-year-old has been virtually anonymous at Chelsea this season, but he played for Belgium in their 2-0 defeat to Colombia on Thursday.

De Bruyne, who was watched by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho during that international, was happy to get some action rather than just be around the squad.

"For me, it is just nice to play again, to stand on the pitch and not be sidelined," De Bruyne said. "It's always difficult for players when they are next to the team."

Belgium manager Marc Wilmots has advised De Bruyne to go on loan to Schalke, but the former Genk favourite knows that is out of his control.

De Bruyne added: "Chelsea is my club. Jose is my boss and he will decide what is going to happen. For the moment, I'm working hard. I have to be so I'm physically okay. I don't have any issues on that.

"As for the rest, we will see what is going to happen."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
