‘Best player in the world’ – Man City fans react to Kevin De Bruyne’s latest masterclass
Kevin De Bruyne continued his fine form on Wednesday evening by inspiring Manchester City to a 3-0 win against Brighton.
Pep Guardiola’s side began the night two points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race, but De Bruyne turned on his big-game style to ensure that wasn’t the case for long. After a goalless first half, De Bruyne started the move that saw Riyad Mahrez score from close-range, the Belgian pulling off a surging run from midfield that Yaya Toure would have been proud of.
De Bruyne then executed a delicate flick to tee-up Bernardo Silva for City’s third goal of the night, rounding off a win that restored the Blues’ one-point lead at the top of the pile. After a slow start to the season, De Bruyne is now playing some of the best football of his City career, and that isn’t going unnoticed by City fans and neutrals alike. Here’s what people had to say about another magical De Bruyne display.
