Kevin De Bruyne is now the fastest player ever to reach 50 Premier League assists

Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

There really are not enough superlatives to describe this Manchester City team.

Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut racked up an astounding 198 points over the last two seasons and have picked up right where they left off when they defended their title in May.

With Sergio Aguero banging them in for free up top, David Silva pulling on magical strings in the middle and the likes of Aymeric Laporte and Ederson at the back, City are possibly the best team in the world.

However, one of the biggest factors behind their imperious form over the last few seasons has been down to the performances of Belgian maestro, Kevin De Bruyne.

De Bruyne’s creativity in midfield is second to none and his world-class vision has been responsible for countless City goals.

He was up to his usual tricks once again against Bournemouth on Sunday as he once again set Aguero up for City to snatch the lead.

That assist - his 50th in the Premier League - truly crowned De Bruyne as the undisputed ‘Assist King.’

That is because he became the fastest player ever to reach the milestone, taking just 123 games to register his half-century.

Having achieved the feat in 18 games fewer than second-place Mesut Ozil did just shows the supreme talent of the midfielder.

De Bruyne bested some elite names too, with the likes of Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cesc Fabregas all falling well off his break-neck speed.

If he can stay injury-free, we could be seeing a lot more assist records falling at his feet.

Arise, Sir Kevin - what a player.
