Kevin De Bruyne ends Hamza Choudhury’s Leicester career before it’s even began

It only took 12 minutes for the midfield man to make jaws drop

That was pretty special.

Kevin De Bruyne is easily Man City’s best player and it certainly didn’t take him long to remind us what he’s capable of in their Carabao Cup clash with against Leicester this evening.

The Belgian scored an absolute peach just 12 minutes into play, having been out of the starting line-up since November.

Picking up the ball on the left hand side of the midfield, the Belgian managed to flat-foot Foxes youngster Hazma Choudhury before unleashing a missile towards the near post, beating the keeper with ease.

Just another day in the office for the World Cup semi-finalist.

Despite his brilliance, City haven’t really missed De Bruyne during his injury lay-off.

The midfield magician has got just four Premier League games under his belt in this injury plagued campaign so far, and City have been coping just fine without him.

With the two Silva’s (David and Bernardo) Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane all waiting in the ranks, losing their number 17 has not been as catastrophic as many thought.

The luxury of depth within Pep Guardiola’s side is evident judging by his team this evening, with Aguero, Mahrez and De Bruyne being played among some of the club’s youngsters, such as Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz.

It’s crucial that the whole squad get some minutes going into the festive period, especially with Aguero and De Bruyne just returning back to full fitness. City are starting to look their lethal best again.
