Only 13 Players Have Registered More Premier League Assists Than Kevin De Bruyne
Kevin De Bruyne's assist vs Sheffield United has seen the Manchester City man move to 14th in the list of all-time Premier League assisters.
City travelled to Bramall Lane hoping to kick on from their 3-0 victory over Marseille in midweek and Kyle Walker gave them the lead in the first-half.
His low drive arrowed into the bottom left corner and it was set up by none other than De Bruyne.
It means the Belgian has provided 68 assists in just 160 Premier League games, a remarkable record.
