The Belgium international played a starring role for the reigning league champions in their 1-0 victory over Sheffield United, and registered the assist for Sergio Aguero's second-half winner. 

In doing so, De Bruyne reached the milestone of 15 assists for the campaign, become the first player ever to reach that figure or more in three consecutive Premier League seasons.

The 28-year-old, who won the inaugural Playmaker of the Season award following the 2017/18 campaign, looks set to reclaim the title this season after losing out to countryman Eden Hazard last time out.

De Bruyne currently leads the assists table ahead of Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has recorded nine assists for the Reds so far this season, while his City teammates David Silva and Riyad Mahrez are a further two assists behind.
