Kevin De Bruyne has matched Wayne Rooney’s assists record, leaving only two players ahead for him to surpass


Since joining the Etihad in 2015, Kevin De Bruyne has emerged as Manchester City’s primary creative force. His tally of 103 assists in the Premier League has not only propelled him to the third spot on the all-time list, alongside Wayne Rooney but achieved in significantly fewer games. Currently, only Cesc Fabregas and Ryan Giggs stand ahead of him in this prestigious ranking.

“I don’t compare. Cesc is an unbelievable footballer player. I don’t compare myself to others. I just try and do the best I can do. People will talk about quicker. Everything is different, you play different positions and teams. We score a lot of goals!|” – KDB said it in early 2023.

The Spanish player holds only an eight-assist advantage over De Bruyne, but Giggs’ total of 162 assists may prove challenging for City’s key player. Nevertheless, the Belgian’s contribution comes at a crucial point in the title race as the season enters its decisive months.

“I missed this,” De Bruyne expressed to TNT Sports post-match. “It is what it is; I had a major injury, and I needed the time. I enjoyed myself. I think it was more about willpower than anything else. It was crazy. I know I can’t sustain that for 90 minutes at the moment. “I can put in a shift for 30 minutes right now. I feel it in my lungs, especially with the cold. It’s great to score the goal. The [assist] is good, but the run from Oscar Bobb is amazing. It was top-notch from him. I look at his run. If he doesn’t run, then I can’t pass the ball. Everyone was really happy for me. We want to try and compete for the league again. We are up there. It was a tough game.”
