Kevin De Bruyne seemed like he barely missed a step as he put his Manchester City side 1-0 up over Leicester City in today’s Carabao Cup quarter-final.
The City key-man has seen his progress stunted somewhat by a pair of injuries sustained both before and during the ongoing campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side are, of course, still flying high in this year’s Premier League but no doubt would have been delighted to see their brilliant Belgian back on the pitch after he was cleared to start in today’s team after returning over the weekend.
His first major act in today’s Carabao Cup quarter-final showdown against Leicester was to fire home an absolutely beautiful strike in the fourteenth minute to give his side the lead.
Watch De Bruyne’s marvellous effort below:
Superb skills from Kevin De Bruyne! @ManCity lead 1-0.
