Kevin De Bruyne’s comments about tiredness sum up how we all feel on Monday

Kevin De Bruyne, when asked whether tiredness was catching up with him, said: "You feel great for 10 games, then you feel OK for 10 games and then the rest you feel like shit."

Thursday you’re starting to feel good again, Friday you’re flying, Saturday you’re top of the world, Sunday not so much and when Monday comes around it’s, well… Monday.

You wouldn’t expect that to apply to footballers but it does, judging by Kevin De Bruyne’s comments following Man City’s 1-1 draw with Burnley.

The Belgian was asked how tiredness was affecting him with 12 games left in the Premier League season.

However Guardiola is giving his players three days to rest before they take on Leicester next Saturday.

So De Bruyne can settle in and catch up on his favourite TV show without anything to worry about.
