Kevin De Bruyne has hit a new level of performance this season.
The Belgian creator was always seen as one of the most productive midfielders in the Premier League, but now many pundits and fans are starting to wonder if he belongs on the same footballing plane as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In ten league games for Manchester City this term he has set up six goals. And, while he has only found the net once himself, that strike was pivotal, winning the crucial meeting of title contenders against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Furthermore, De Bruyne has contributed two assists and one goal in three Champions League outings this season, meaning Napoli, his Wednesday night opponents, will have to be on top of their defensive game to stop him.
We at Football Whispers have put together a video comprising his five most magical moments of individual skill in this campaign so far. These moments include precise passes, astounding touches and delicious finishes.
