Guardiola in awe of Kevin De Genius

Kevin de Bruyne claimed his 100th goal for Manchester City in a 4-2 win at Crystal Palace, maintaining their Premier League title challenge.

City boss Pep Guardiola was quick to praise his star player after the game, which puts City level on points with Liverpool at the top of the table, albeit having played one extra goal.

“For many years he has been one of the best players for our club,” he said.

“What he has done in England has been unbelievable. Many goals, assists and consistency. We had four or five months without him and now we need him at the end of the season.

“I think he likes to score goals but I don’t know if he enjoys it more to make an assist. He is so generous with that – but he has to continue.”
