Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne clocked another milestone in the club’s win over Crystal Palace on Sunday night.
De Bruyne assist for the opening goal of the game that came from John Stones was his 100th assist for the Man City in all competitions.
It is his 76th assist in the Premier League, which sees him enter the competition’s all-time top 10 in joint tenth position alongside former England striker Teddy Sheringham.
The Belgian has been a key figure for City since his arrival five and a half years ago and is said to be on the verge of signing a new deal with the Citizens.
During his time at the Etihad, he has won two Premier League Playmaker of the Season award (2018 and 2020) and set up 20 goals last season to equal Thierry Henry’s 17-year record for the most assists in a single Premier League campaign.
He has also reached 50 quicker than anyone else in the competition and was the first player to provide 15 or more assists in three different seasons. Having been crowned Premier League Player of the Season and PFA Player of the Year for 2019/20, De Bruyne ended 2020 with the most assists in the league across the calendar year.
The player hasn’t stopped with his duty of providing assists as he already has 15 this season (in all competitions) scoring three goals in the process.
