Will a Manchester City legend torment Arsenal again this weekend?

Manchester City legend Kevin De Bruyne is typically at his best when his side faces Arsenal. The Belgian international has a stunning record against the Gunners, and De Bruyne could be a decisive factor if he’s at his best on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.

Across his Manchester City career, De Bruyne has scored 8 goals and added 5 assists in 20 appearances in all competitions against Arsenal. When Pep Guardiola’s side needs a match winner against the Gunners, it so often is the Manchester City legend who lifts his team. His brace in City’s emphatic 4-1 win over Arsenal at the Etihad late last season helped lay the foundation for City to surge to last season’s Premier League title.

Sunday’s game has the potential to have massive implications in this season’s title race. A victory for either side could prove pivotal in the final destination of the Premier League title. While the result of the game won’t be definitive in the title race, it could give the winner sizable momentum for what lies ahead.

It’s with this backdrop that Kevin De Bruyne is typically at his best. Throughout his illustrious City career, he has so often been the man for the big occasion. Sunday’s game is another such setting for De Bruyne to thrive. If he can put Arsenal to the sword as he has throughout his time at Manchester City, it could go a long way in deciding the game.

Pep Guardiola’s side received a boost pre-game with De Bruyne training ahead of the game yesterday. It appears that the Manchester City legend is primed to torment Arsenal once again on Sunday.
