- Chelsea are already out of the Premier League title race according to De Bruyne
- The Belgian thinks City and United are the two teams who will fight for the title
- City lead Jose Mourinho's Red Devils with two points after eight games played
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne says the Premier League title race is likely to come down to a straight fight between his club and United.
The Belgian reckons that last season's winners Chelsea are already out of the race as they are in fourth place, nine points behind table topping City after nine games.
Pep Guardiola's City currently lead Jose Mourinho's Red Devils by five points at the top of the Premier League.
Third-placed Tottenham remain within touching distance, five points adrift of City.
“For the moment I think so, but everybody's still there,” said De Bruyne.
“It's so early. If you lose two or three games you go back to a [lower] position. We have to maintain this hopefully.”
City finished third in Guardiola's debut campaign last season, fading after an impressive start.
City have won 10 staraight games in all competitions having defeated Serie A leaders Napoli on Tuesday, October 17 in the Champions League.
