You'll be hard pushed to find a better solo display from a player this season than Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne vs Tottenham.

The Belgian midfielder - who has been the finest performer in the Premier League in 2017/18 - was truly at the peak of his powers, carving a high-class opponent to pieces at will with passing and close control.

He also managed to shake off a truly horrific challenge from the out-of-form Dele Alli, who somehow only saw yellow for his assault.

Shortly after the incident, De Bruyne had doubled City's lead, unleashing an unstoppable shot with his weaker left foot beyond the reach of Hugo Lloris.

Then, he won a penalty, only for Gabriel Jesus to miss it but it didn't matter, as Raheem Sterling's brace sealed a 4-1 win.

Now, throughout the match, Twitter and those in commentary were drooling over some of his outrageous distribution.

Thankfully, one kind soul has made a short video compilation of his best passes throughout the 90 minutes.

Some of these almost defy the laws of football.

How on earth did he manage the ones where he wasn't even looking at the expected destination of the ball? Pure, natural talent.

De Bruyne is also becoming quite the bargain in fantasy football despite his value exceeding 10 million, acquiring three bonus points once more.

Only Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has collected more points from a midfield position this season.

Speaking after the game, Pep Guardiola was also left jaw-dropped by his talisman and showered him with praise.

"I want to say thank you to all of my players, especially Kevin for the fact he is one of the most talented players," the Spaniard said.

"You see him how he runs without the ball, he's a good example for the young players and for our academy, for Phil Foden, for Brahim (Diaz), they know how good Kevin De Bruyne is.

"When they are outside and see how he runs and fights without the ball, that is the best example and he helps us to be a better club, a better institution for the future."

At this moment in time, even the likes of Salah and Eden Hazard stand no chance of beating De Bruyne
