Manchester City fans react to Kevin de Bruyne's display, make Steven Gerrard comparison

Manchester City drew 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.

Manchester City picked up two vital away goals as they drew 2-2 with Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday night.

City made the trip over to the French capital with many people writing them off, considering that their recent form in the Premier League has been less than stellar.

However, after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a penalty saved by City goalkeeper Joe Hart, Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne sweetly finished off a sweeping counter-attack to put Manuel Pellegrini's men in front.

Ibrahimovic did then find the net after an error from Fernando, and when Adrien Rabiot struck against his former club, it looked like City would head back to the Etihad Stadium with a defeat, only for Fernandinho to hit an equaliser.

With two away goals, City have a great chance of advancing into the semi-finals of Europe's top club competition - and goalscorer De Bruyne stole the show again.

A summer signing from Wolfsburg, De Bruyne has recently been out through injury, but made his big return in City's thumping 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday, and impressed again in the clash with PSG.

During and after the game at the Parc des Princes, City fans took to Twitter to praise De Bruyne's performance, suggesting that he has become their very own Steven Gerrard in the way that he drives the team forward.

Others claimed that City could be in line for the Premier League title had De Bruyne been fit for the last two months, whilst some even suggested that he could win the Ballon d'Or whilst playing for City...
