The Belgian midfielder was at his absolute best in a superb game packed with quality, opening the scoring with a strike that deflected in off Joel Matip.
De Bruyne showed just why many deem him to be the best midfielder in the world with a complete display and one full of incredible defence-splitting passes. It's quite astonishing that City's No.17 never had an assist.
There would have been reason for disappointment from a City perspective given they had taken the lead twice and had a Raheem Sterling strike disallowed for an incredibly tight offside call.
But De Bruyne remained upbeat afterwards in his interviews and also his social media content. Last week the former Chelsea man announced he had joined TikTok and would be using the platform to allow fans to get closer to his life on and off the pitch.
And his first real upload did just that. De Bruyne posted a heartwarming behind-the-scenes video of his day, showing his wife Michelle and two young sons Mason and Rome.
The 36 second clip, titled "My biggest support" sees De Bruyne say his goodbyes to his children as he makes his way to the Etihad Stadium.
But the kids, wearing their full City kits with their dad's number on the back, travel to the ground and are seen cheering him on from the stands.
After the clash ends all square, De Bruyne reunites with his family and shares hugs and kisses. He then drives to McDonalds and gets Mason and Rome a happy meal each - even signing something for one of the staff on the Drive-thru.
The closing shot sees the four wave to the camera, capping off a very wholesome and insightful first post for De Bruyne, a humble family man and a genius of a player at the same time.
The video has already garnered over 1 million likes on TikTok and we look forward to many more uploads from arguably the best player in the Premier League.
