Manchester City and Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is set to equal two records set by former Arsenal striker Thiery Henry.
Henry is the only player in the Premier League history to provide an assist in five consecutive games and De Bruyne could do just that when City travel to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City.
Having managed one in each of the Citizens’ games to open the season, the Belgian has a chance to move level with Henry on Saturday.
Hattrick of Assists
The player proved on Monday that he is more than capable of pulling that feat while on international duty where he provided a hat-trick of assists in less than half an hour against Scotland.
The player to most recently threatened the record was another former Arsenal man Cesc Fàbregas in 2014/15.
