How many times has the Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland connection borne fruit for Manchester City, with the pair at it again right on the stroke of half-time at Southampton.
The Premier League’s basement boys were proving a tough nut to crack at St. Mary’s but cometh the hour, cometh the man.
Kevin De Bruyne is the fastest player in Premier League history to reach 100 assists, breaking Cesc Fàbregas’ record by 56 games:

When the Belgian floated in his cross, it was the towering Norwegian who got on the end of it to power home.
It was De Bruyne’s 100th English top-flight assist and he’s the quickest player to complete the feat.
NO MISTAKE THIS TIME! ?
