Aguero of course stole the rest of the headlines with the Argentine forward filling his boots this evening against the Foxes as he registered an impressive quadruple with all four goals coming in the second-half.
Aguero now has 21 goals in the league this season and is only five goals away from equaling his best tally for goals in a single Premier League season when the star notched 26 in the 2014/15 season.
As previously mentioned however De Bruyne’s creativity lead City fans to offer a flurry of praise on social media for the Belgian with some even suggesting the midfielder is now one of the best players in the world.

Kevin De Bruyne is the best player in the premier league. Could really do with a sneaky Real Madrid bid this summer.

Remember about a year ago when plenty of us thought De Bruyne was struggling with Guardiola’s system? He *is* the system!
