Kevin De Bruyne yet again scored against his former club as the Belgian international hit a stunning goal from distance to secure the three points for the Manchester giants.
The result puts City an astonishing 13 points ahead of Chelsea, with third-pace side Liverpool 14 points off their Manchester rivals with two games in hand.
Indeed, the 1-0 win against the Blues has seemingly all-but-confirmed City’s status as Premier League champions, with the club on a 12-game winning streak in the English top-flight.
Whilst it isn’t outside the realm of possibility for a club to catch up with City, Pep Guardiola’s side look almost untouchable given the size of their team and the quality they have in the wings.
And it was this quality that secured them the win, with a moment of magic from De Bruyne being the defining moment from the match that saw City claim the three points against `Chelsea.
The former Stamford Bridge midfielder has been in incredible form in recent weeks, yet De Bruyne’s goal against Chelsea yesterday was easily the midfielder’s most important action so far.
City fans stunned as De Bruyne steals the show against Chelsea
Indeed, De Bruyne is back to his world-class best after a slow start to the season. And on social media, City fans were speechless over his goal and overall display against Chelsea on Saturday.
Here’s what some City supporters had to say on Twitter about the midfielder’s display against their Premier League rivals…
