Kevin De Bruyne’s wretched luck with injury has given Bernardo Silva the chance to continue his superb start to the season in Sunday’s Premier League visit of Southampton to the Etihad.

Playmaker De Bruyne injured ligaments in his left knee during Thursday’s League Cup win against Fulham — just his second start of the season — sidelining him for five to six weeks.

And that has all but assured Bernardo Silva’s spot in the City first team for as many as the next seven games as he continues to shine in De Bruyne’s absence.

“It’s not about the derby, that’s three points, like Southampton. The Manchester derby will not be a final, it’s another game,” said Guardiola on Friday.
