When Kevin De Bruyne showcased his amazing vision against Burnley, Manchester City supporters were certain that Liverpool’s season was gone.
With a quick-fire brace from Julian Alvarez, Man City leads Burnley 2-0 at the half.
In the sixteenth minute, he scored the first goal with a header, and two minutes later, De Bruyne’s sorcery doubled his team’s lead.
The Belgium midfielder fed Alvarez with a brilliant pass from a free kick in the 22nd minute, and the striker made no mistakes in front of goal.
Man City supporters are ecstatic about De Bruyne’s assist and think the title fight is “over” now that the star player has fully recovered.
Even yet, the Blues are already behind league leaders Liverpool in the standings.
A user on X cried out, “KEVIN DE BRUYNE ASSIST. WOW, WOW, and WOW. YOU HAVE EXPIRED.”
“The annual 15-game unbeaten run begins,” tweeted someone else.
“Yep, it’s all over for them, we won,” a third person said.
“Sorry Klopp and Liverpool, but it’s over,” remarked the fourth person.
“De Bruyne is so back the league is OVER,” remarked the sixth person.
Man City will have 46 points after securing three points tonight, while Liverpool will have 48 points before their match against Chelsea.
After making his injury comeback last weekend in City’s FA Cup victory over Huddersfield, De Bruyne had an incredible comeback to Premier League play on Saturday.
With twenty minutes remaining, the 32-year-old came off the bench as City trailed 2-1 against Newcastle United at St James’ Park. After netting a spectacular goal five minutes into his cameo, he set Manchester City’s injury-time winner with a risky pass.
After the game, a journalist questioned De Bruyne about whether or not the strike that went past defender Fabian Schar’s legs and into the bottom corner of the goal was purposeful.
“It’s not coincidental, it’s well thought out,” he responded. “I see that Schar is trying to establish himself as much as possible since it’s a one-on-one, and I see that Julian [Alvarez] moves to the right [hand side] and takes [Sven] Botman with him.
