Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has bring to light why he and Mohamed Salah struggled under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

De Bruyne has said that they aren't comparable as players, but admitted that Salah's record speaks for itself.

The Belgian midfielder has been phenomenal for Pep Guardiola's side this season, creating more chances than any player in the Premier League and being a cornerstone in the Cityzens' formula which is on the verge of securing the Premier League title.

The two go head-to-head on Wednesday when Salah's Liverpool host City at Anfield for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Addressing the possibility of taking home the award himself on Tuesday, De Bruyne told a press conference: 'Well, if I get it, it would be nice I think for the team and for me.

De Bruyne's voting slip was revealed on Twitter, and the Man City talisman voted for competitor Salah for player of the year.

"In my feeling, this year there's not been a lot of games where I've been a little bit down".

Life under Jose Mourinho hadn't proven to be great for either of them as they just simply didn't get games, and now, an interview with De Bruyne has shed some light on how things were.

"However, it has been a first season wonder for Salah and I think it has been quite extraordinary for a player who isn't an out-and-out striker, which just makes it even more incredible".

Impressively selfless when he could easily have cast a tactical vote for Harry Kane - but probably what you'd expect from the leading assister in the Premier League.

"I think Jurgen is a master to buy players with what he really needs for the way he wants to play".

"If they (Liverpool) go through and they deserve it, that's the way it goes. But I thought for me the probability of the type of football that I can play at City will suit me the best".

'The volume is always up, ' says De Bruyne. [He] came to Chelsea, went to Roma had a good time and he carries on what he did at Roma. "Every time he shoots he scores", Hamman said. He helps us a lot. "I don't look at what happened before, I wouldn't know how to choose anybody else, outside of Salah, if it's not our team".
