De Bruyne set up John Stones who headed home in the 35th minute thanks to a glorious pass by the Belgium star.
After his corner was cleared, Raheem Sterling pinged the ball back to the midfielder who killed the ball dead before sending a delicious ball into the box.
With the outside of his right foot, De Bruyne picked out Stones in a sublime moment to bring up his century of assists for City.
