Man City ace Kevin De Bruyne is an assist machine and he proved it again during Saturday’s clash with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.
Not content with playing a sublime pass to set Sergio Aguero on his way to opening up the scoring, the Belgian international was back at it for the second goal too as City took a commanding lead against their rivals who also had Sadio Mane sent off.
De Bruyne did brilliantly to see off the attention of Trent Alexander-Arnold before whipping in an inch-perfect cross to find Gabriel Jesus who did the rest and headed home past Simon Mignolet.

That assist was De Bruyne’s 56th since 2013/14, which is more than any other player in Europe in the top five leagues since that season to show just how influential and decisive he is in the final third.
