Kevin De Bruyne could be in contention to face Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday after further scans on his ankle showed no serious damage.

That’s according to The Athletic, who have revealed that Pep Guardiola’s fears over the 29-year-old have been allayed.

De Bruyne limped out of the FA Cup semi final defeat to Chelsea on Saturday in the 48th minute.

Initial scans on Sunday ruled out ligament damage but there were still doubts over the severity of the issue due to the swelling around the ankle.

But the report seems to suggest De Bruyne could well make the trip to Wembley at the weekend and should well be in contention for the Champions League semi-final first leg against PSG next Wednesday.
