Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne made a Premier League history as his side were made to toil for the three points at Sheffield on Tuesday.
City had missed an opportunity to take the lead after Dean Henderson had saved a Gabriel Jesus penalty but De Bruyne was on hand to provide an assist for substitute Sergio Aguero who poked home from close range in what was the only game in the match.
With the assist, the Belgian made a Premier League history by becoming the first player to provide 15 or more assists in three separate seasons.
De Bruyne playmaking exploits saw him provide 18 assists in the 2016-17 season and 16 assists in 2017-18 season.
The 28-year-old is also on course to enjoy his most prolific goalscoring season in the English top-flight, having netted seven times to move within one of the total of eight he achieved two seasons ago.
