WE STILL HOLD THE VIEW THAT KEVIN DE BRUYNE HAS EXCEPTIONALY PLAYED SOME GREAT FOOTBALL THIS WEEKEND.
Manchester could not live with Manchester City’s breathtaking attacking players in another one-sided derby.
Manchester City were in control of the game right from the start.
Man’City got the better of their city rivals as they overcame Manchester United 4-1 in a ding-dong battle at the Etihad Stadium.
“Captain fantastic” De Bruyne opened the scoring merely five minutes, slotting home after an excellent work down the left flanks.
Sancho curled United level against his former club after an excellent break from the visitors.
Phil Foden saw a header clip the top of the bar two minutes before De Bruyne doubled his gaols,
finishing off a melee in the box that originated yet again from the left-hand side,
as Foden’s flick and volley was saved brilliantly in the interim by David de Gea,
Grealish’s follow-up was blocked, and the Belgian was on hand to slide home a sumptuous second.
It got even better for the Sky Blues as their right-hand man Mahrez struck on 68 minutes with a gorgeous goal,
De Bruyne the creator this time, clipping to the edge of the area for the Algerian to almost pass it home, via a deflection off Harry Maguire.
Mahrez got his second of the day as VAR confirmed, after initially disallowing the goalfor a flag, the Algerian had cause to celebrate again as he made it four.
The Belgian midfielder has established himself as one of the worlds top talents since joining Manchester City.
He has gained himself a reputation as a playmaker providing assists and scoring more goals.
