Pep Guardiola has suggested that Kevin De Bruyne will continue to be Manchester City’s penalty taker although he didn’t take the penalty kick against Brighton.

It was Raheem Sterling who came to take the penalty in the 90+2′, however, he missed it.

“Kevin is the taker but he made an incredible effort – not just the action to press the keeper and create the penalty but for the rest of the actions before,” said Guardiola.

“He was struggling in the last 15 minutes because he was exhausted. I like the guys who take the responsibility for the penalty. It was Raz and next time it will be better.”

City won the game with a 1-0 score as Phil Foden scored the only goal of the game.
