Bertrand Traore Produces Outrageous Touch And Sends Kevin De Bruyne Back To Genk

Bertrand Traore Produces Outrageous Touch And Sends Kevin De Bruyne Back To Genk

Bertrand Traore produced the best first touch you'll see all season against Manchester City this evening.

The Burkina Faso international has been in fine form for Aston Villa of late and he conjured up a truly breathtaking moment in the second half at the Etihad Stadium.

Emiliano Martinez displayed impressive distribution to set Traore on his way but he killed the ball dead in stunning fashion, sending Kevin De Bruyne tumbling as he kept it in the air courtesy of some ridiculous knee control.

The former Chelsea man cut inside on his left foot and forced Ederson into a save. Had he found the net, we'd be talking about a goal of the season contender.

It was almost like Traore simply had to upstage the technical brilliance of his manager Dean Smith after his exquisite touch to trap the ball on the touchline.

Despite City captain De Bruyne going off with an injury in the second half, Pep Guardiola's side moved to top of the league courtesy of late goals from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan.

The 2-0 win continues City's sensational run of form and takes them to 38 points, one ahead of rivals Manchester United, who play Fulham at Craven Cottage this evening.
