PREMIER - KDB and Lavia: Belgian duo starts at Man City
Despite the smooth flow from Neerpede, not every top talent from Anderlecht waits for a chance in the first team. Romeo Lavia, for example, decided to move directly to Manchester City a year ago.
The Purple & White saw the promising Belgian, regarded as one of the most talented players in the Brussels youth academy, leave with a heavy heart. For now, however, Lavia doesn't seem to regret his choice.
After already being included in the Champions League selection by Pep Guardiola, the teenager is now preparing for his official debut with the English champions' main squad. In Tuesday evening's Carabao Cup match against Wycombe, he will appear at the kick-off, according to the BBC.
de Bruyne will captain the team to play Wycombe and goalkeeper Steffen will be in post for City.
