Man City boss Guardiola hails De Bruyne after victory over Leicester: He has everything

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hailed the performance of Kevin de Bruyne for their 3-1 defeat of Leicester City.

De Bruyne was central to all of City's best attacking moments. An inch-perfect cross for Gabriel Jesus saw City put the game beyond Leicester - his tenth assist of the season so far, which is more than any other player in the division.

And afterwards, Guardiola was full of praise for his talisman.

“Kevin we don't have doubts about," he said. "We cannot expect him to win the game every three days for us.

“It's not just with the ball it's without. He has everything.

“We want to play good. We have to make a fluent attack and today we did.

“The most difficult thing in football is to play simple and today we did it. Then everything comes and the quality of the players comes out.

“In two seasons before we played a lot of games the way we did today. Hopefully in the future we can continue in this level."
