Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Kevin De Bruyne for Manchester City against Watford.
De Bruyne was in action for City in their Premier League game against Watford at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The 28-year-old had one of his best games this season, as the Belgium international provided two assists and linked up brilliantly with his teammates.
According to WhoScored, De Bruyne took four shots, had a pass accuracy of 87.9%, made one clearance, attempted four dribbles, played eight key passes, and put in five crosses.
The Belgian midfielder has made five starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for City so far this season, scoring two goals and providing seven assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
