Assists Record

The Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne is level with Arsenal’s legend, Thierry Henry for the total number of assists made in the Premier League for a season.

Kevin De Bruyne, the Belgium playmaker was in masterful form as Manchester City demolished the relegated Norwich City 5-0 in their final home game scoring two fine goals and setting up Raheem Sterling for another.

His contribution to Sterling’s effort, which marked City’s third in their final domestic game was his 20th top-flight assist of the 2019/20 season placing him in level with Henry’s benchmark for Arsenal in the 2002/03 season.

However, De Bruyne feels a little short-changed believing there were two other occasions he should have been given an assist.

On the first occasion, the attacking mid-fielder put in a cross for Sterling to score against Arsenal in December that took a slight deflection. Second, he provided a through ball for the England international that hit David Luiz’s thigh against the same opponents in June.

“I have got two more. You guys took two away from me that I am still claiming. So for me, I was already above Henry”. Said De Bruyne.

“It is what it is. I need my team-mates, obviously, I am creating for them to score and I am grateful when they do. It is nice to have the record and it is nice to have it with Thierry”.

De Bruyne is known as the Premier League’s most consistent provider and had already gone close on several occasions to equalling the famed French striker. The midfielder recorded 18 assists in the 2016/17 season and also managed 16 the following year.

In total, he boasts 66 assists in the English top-flight and 36 goals from midfield for Pep Guardiola’s charges.
