    Kevin De Bruyne has drawn the fury of Arsenal fans after he said St James' Park and Anfield have better atmospheres than the Emirates Stadium.

    The Manchester City star was asked to rank the three stadiums when appearing on Sky Sports – and he was quick to name the Emirates at the bottom of the pile.

    De Bruyne noted how St James' Park was rocking even when Newcastle were struggling, while Anfield has special evenings when it's a Champions League game.

    The Belgian superstar did note the Emirates' atmosphere had improved last season, but his comments still drew the fury of Gunners fans on social media.

    "That's why Ozil is still the best midfielder in the Premier League, this guy is finished," one Arsenal fan fumed. While a second added: "He really does not rate Arsenal. I will be there when he's finally washed. Age and injuries are catching up!"

    "Arteta would show this video to fan groups before City comes to the Emirates this season," a third joked. And another added: "The only reason we’ve been put in this is so he can put us last, so strange!"

    City will have to do without De Bruyne for a large chunk of the season, after he was forced off with an injury against Burnley.

    De Bruyne had limped off in last May's Champions League final, but he had recovered enough to start against Burnley on the opening day of the season.

    However, that return was short-lived, and Pep Guardiola's side are expected to be without the Belgian until the turn of the year.
