The Belgian playmaker was at his brilliant best, scoring once and laying on another as we ran out 4-0 winners in our first home match of the season.
He scored the second, driving at the Cherries' defence before curling the ball with the outside of his boot and inside the far post.
That goal started with De Bruyne in the right wing position. For the next goal, he popped up on the left.
His slide-rule pass was perfectly weighted for Phil Foden, who saw his shot half-saved before trickling over the line.
