Kevin De Bruyne loves playing against Arsenal and his performance on Wednesday night proved it.
The Belgian midfielder was the star of the show as he bagged two goals and an assist to help Man City to a 4-1 victory over Mikel Arteta’s side.
While they still sit second in the table, Pep Guardiola’s side now have their title fate in their own hands with two games more to play than their rivals.
De Bruyne is certainly one of the more influential stars in the Premier League and that’s due to his consistency of performance over his years at the top.
However fans are noticing that his displays against Arsenal are always among his best.
So far in his career, De Bruyne has played 19 times against the Gunners, winning 14, drawing two and losing three.
In that time, he’s also scored eight goals and provided four assists along the way, the most that the midfielder has scored against any single opponent.
His potency against the Gunners has not been lost on Arsenal fans either.
