Kevin de Bruyne equals Steven Gerrard’s Premier League record

’s Kevin de Bruyne has equalled Steven Gerrard’s Premier League assist record after setting up two of the goals during his side’s three-nil rout over Wolves on Saturday.

The Belgian linked up with Jack Grealish to help City score after just 55 seconds and put them in control during their Premier League win that took them to the top of the table.

City’s talisman then secured his 92nd league assist with a perfectly-executed cross seeing Phil Foden poke the ball past a helpless José Sá.

De Bruyne has started the new season in devastating form, topping the Premier League assists table after seven games, netting six assists, double the amount of second-placed Roberto Firmino.

The 31-year-old edged deeper into top-flights record books by matching Gerrard’s number of assists, but surprisingly in 287 games fewer with the legend needing 504 games to reach the figure.

Teammate and opening goalscorer, Grealish revealed he has been nagging De Bruyne about not assisting for enough goals prior to their trip to Molineux.

Speaking to BT Sport at full-time, the Englishman said: ‘I’m always having a laugh with Kev, saying to him about assisting me.
