Kevin de Bruyne had a big hand in helping Werder Bremen to a 4-1 win at Hoffenheim in the German Bundesliga on the weekend.

The 21-year old Belgian winger, who is on a season-long loan from Chelsea, provided two assists as Die Grun-Weissen moved up to eighth on the table.

De Bruyne produced a brilliant 35-yard free-kick to set up Sebastian Prodl for a header to open the scoring in the 21st minute before he contributed to Bremen doubling their advantage when he traded passes with Marko Arnautovic - the final ball a perfectly weighted pass for the Austrian to slot home the first of his treble.

Sejad Salihovic gave Hoffenheim a glimmer of hope five minutes into the second half before Arnautovic scored twice in six minutes later in the game to give Thomas Schaaf's men maximum points.

It was de Bruyne's 15th appearance for Bremen this season in which he has scored four goals and provided as many assists.
