Kevin De Bruyne scored two to take his City tally to 100 goals and assisted another, in a majestic display in the 4-2 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace.

Pep Guardiola‘s men went behind after just three minutes, with Jean-Philippe Mateta slotting the hosts ahead at Selhurst Park.

Ten minutes later we were level thanks to De Bruyne‘s powerful curling drive into the top corner from the left edge of the 18-yard box flew beyond the sprawling Dean Henderson.


The splendid strike marked the Belgian’s 250th Premier League appearance for the Club with his 99th goal across all competitions.

Shortly after the interval, the comeback was complete with Rico Lewis finding space 12 yards from goal and striking into the bottom corner for his second goal against the Eagles, after netting in the reverse fixture earlier this season at the Etihad Stadium.

After 66 minutes, we extended our lead further, with De Bruyne turning provider, playing the ball across the six-yard box for Erling Haaland to tap into the net, taking the striker’s tally to 82 goals in 89 games across all competitions in his City career.

Four minutes later, De Bruyne fizzed in his second of the afternoon, blasting in at the near post with his left foot from Rodrigo‘s neat lay-off from 18 yards, taking him to 100 goals for the Club.


Odsonne Edouard pulled a goal back for the hosts with five minutes left to play, but we stayed resolute to claim an impressive away victory, temporarily taking us level on points with league-leaders Liverpool, who play tomorrow.
