CHRIS SUTTON: Kevin De Bruyne's defence-splitting pass for Manchester City against Leicester was sublime - any striker would DREAM of playing in front of him... maybe even Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland

If Manchester City are having a hard time convincing Erling Haaland and his agent Mino Raiola that they are the right club for the striker, show them this pass by Kevin De Bruyne.

Tell the Borussia Dortmund star to picture himself getting on the end of these defence-splitting through-balls.

My word, I’d have loved to have someone like that operating behind me in my playing days. Every striker would.

As long as you time your run to stay onside, De Bruyne will thread the ball through to you, no problem.
