Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has heaped praises on Belgium star Kevin De Bruyne after the latter led the riot that demolished Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium, yesterday.
Manchester City, contending for the Premier League title this season with four points needed to ice the campaign after the 5-1 win on Wednesday, saw the midfielder scoring four of the five goals to attain eight goals in eight games.
According to Guardiola, Kevin De Bruyne has been very instrumental to the success of the club in the second half of the season, dismantling all obstacles to their surge for the trophy.
“What can I say? The second part of the league he has been beyond perfect,” Guardiola said in Sky Sports’ dock.
“He is a guy who is always so generous, always has the sense to make the assist. But I think this season he has also had the sense to be prolific to score goals. He scored against Chelsea, he scored against Madrid, and he has been decisive in scoring goals. In the end, this is what makes the greatest.
“I am very pleased for him because, of course, scoring four goals in the decisive part of the league is so important,” he added.
Manchester City have been put under pressure by Liverpool which prompted the manager to react recently that the whole of England is supporting the Reds to win the trophy.
Liverpool fought to close the gap with Manchester City to a point until they drew with Antonio Conte’s men and Manchester City reconfigured Newcastle United to extend the lead to three points.
However, with two games left for both teams having played 36 games of the 38 matches in the Premier League season, Manchester City need a minimum of a win and a draw, except Liverpool’s two outcomes go otherwise, to lift their fourth Premier League title in five years.
Consequently, City become the first club to win five consecutive games with a three-goal margin in the history of the English Premier League, achieving this feat in a combustible atmosphere for the title.
