Manchester City celebrate vs Spurs

Man United & Liverpool fans rage over MOTD’s Kevin De Bruyne ‘best ever’ claim

Man City 5 – Leicester City 1

Pep Guardiola’s champions elect stormed past Leicester on Saturday at the Etihad.

The writing was on the wall foor Leicester after just three minutes when Raheem Sterling broke the deadlock.

Sergio Aguero stole the headlines going on to score foul goals. The Argentine is now up to 21 league goals: the same as Liverpool’s Mo Salah and two behind Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Yet it was Kevin De Bruyne who stole the show and bossed the game. The Belgian registered a hat-trick of assists, while he’s now closing on on Thierry Henry’s 20 EPL assist record for the season.

Kevin De Bruyne: ‘Premier League’s best ever’

The hat-trick of assists means Kevin De Bruyne has 14 assists in the Premier League this season.

The big question is now whether Kevin De Bruyne can bag this Premier League record.

KDB has 11 games remaining in the Premier League season to bag six assists.

It is somewhat ironic to note that Kevin De Bruyne failed to bag a Premier League assist in the first three games of this season.

There’s also the fear that KDB will be rotated in the final weeks of the league season as City focus on the Champions League instead.

When De Bruyne came up on BBC’s Match of the Day show, pundit Danny Murphy labelled the midfielder the best passer of the ball the Premier League has ever seen.

Man United & Liverpool fans react badly

Of course, not everyone agreed with KDB praise.

Man United and Liverpool fans were amongst those who took to social media to argue the case against MOTD.

For Man United fans, they hailed Paul Scholes and Eric Cantona amongst their greatest ever passes.

Liverpool fans crowed about the likes of Xabi Alonso.
