#1 De Bruyne’s fury
Kevin De Bruyne had one of the best seasons in a while after the Belgian International gave two crucial assists in the game to give a lead to Manchester City in the first half.
Although, lead achieved by Manchester City was shortlived, as Lucas Moura scores an equalizer as soon as he walked inside the pitch, making it one of the quickest goals by a substitute ever.
Coming to De Bruyne, his assists were top class, the first one was a world-class aerial pass to Raheem Sterling, who headed the ball inside to gain a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. If this was not enough, the Belgian midfielder sniped the ball directly to Sergio Aguero and the Argentine Striker placed the ball inside the net and once again gaining the lead against Spurs, who equalized the score after Erik Lamela’s strike.
De Bruyne’s performance was indeed a special one, if Spurs had not scored the goals, the credits for Manchester City’s win would have gone to him.
