Man City boss Guardiola: De Bruyne incredible past 4 games

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hailed the performance of Kevin de Bruyne for victory over Crystal Palace.

De Bruyne, who has struggled with injuries this season, impressed in City's 3-1 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

He played a brilliant pass through to Raheem Sterling for the opening goal, and also assisted Gabriel Jesus' late third.

Guardiola said: "The last three or four games, he's been incredible the way he played.

"We had missed him a lot."

"He has that ability and vision to see passes that the rest of human beings are not able to see. With him, our pace and our passes in front in the final third from his passing is incredible.

"Today he was so committed, defending, winning duels to be in that position. Of course, he is fresh mentally, and his legs too in that situation. That is why, not just for the two assists that were so important, but for all the other situations that we needed, he is so important for us in winning the game."
