The Belgium maestro picked up the ball in the middle of the pitch and took a couple of touches to compose himself before serving up a delicious pass to his teammate.
With his trusted right peg, he pierced a sublime ball that brilliantly split Leicester's defence - beating two sprawling defenders.

De Bruyne makes these through balls look simple. If your club doesn't have a player that can do that, then you will realise how difficult it is.- Vince:tm: (@Blue_Footy) April 3, 2021

He's so far clear as the best midfielder in the world
One Twitter user wrote: "That Kdb pass though."
A second tweeted: "De bruyne is the best midfielder in Premier League."
A third added: "Doesn't get an assist, but sometimes it's better to watch his brilliance and forget the stats."
Pep Guardiola's reaction to De Bruyne's pass says it all: "Quite good, huh?!"
De Bruyne's excellence means City are now 17 points ahead of nearest rivals Manchester United.
Guardiola will be hoping his star man turns up when they take on Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League next week.
