Kevin De Bruyne had an evening to both remember and forget as he led Chelsea to a 4-1 victory, but finished on the sidelines following an injury. 

The 22-year-old raced onto fellow Belgian Romelu Lukaku's flick-on to lash home a ferocious half-volley that left the Malaysia goalkeeper stranded. 

However, as he struck the ball, he landed awkwardly on his ankle, forcing him to be stretched off. 

The extent of the injury is not yet known, but De Bruyne will hope that it doesn't force him out of for the start of the season. 

Watch De Bruyne's scintillating effort above, that put Chelsea 2-0 up on the night.
