The Belgian playmaker has been sensational in Manchester City's journey this season and is already one step away from claiming the Premier League title for the Citizens. Let us know in the comments section below.
'Maybe a lot of people are picking up on it now, but I'm not really the type of person who thinks about that.
"De Bruyne has obviously been fantastic throughout the season and has adapted very impressively to playing a deeper role for City, which allows them to switch from defence to attack so quickly".
"It's not impossible, it's hard".

'You have to take it up, you know. He helps us a lot.
Rarely have the season's Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association's annual accolades been won by different players. It's always been a seven out of 10 or sometimes a little bit better.

"It's pretty clear it's still going to be very hard, but we just need to be well prepared".
The damage was so extensive a replacement bus was needed to take the squad back to Manchester.
'I think it shows Salah's and my strength, ' said the City midfielder.
"However, it has been a first season wonder for Salah and I think it has been quite extraordinary for a player who isn't an out-and-out striker, which just makes it even more incredible".
