Former Chelsea man Kevin De Bruyne carried Manchester City to the lead in the first half of the Manchester derby.

Fans have had a lot to say about the players brilliant solo performance.

Some praised his pinpoint finish to make it 1-0.

Seriously good finish from De Bruyne. Open the body to give yourself options / keep the keeper guessing then whip it giving GK the eyes.

And thought he was bossing the game.

City look incredible. De Bruyne running the show + Pep's a genius!

Others thought he had the better of United defender Daley Blind.

Blind got robbed and sent back to the Netherlands by De Bruyne. So rude.

32 – Kevin De Bruyne has been directly involved in 32 goals in 46 apps in all competitions for Man City (17 goals, 15 assists). Catalyst.

But most wanted to point out he had some redemption against the manager who sold him Jose Mourinho…

De Bruyne sold by Mourinho at Chelsea.
De Bruyne bought by Man City.
De Bruyne scores against Mourinho's Man Utd.
Got to love it.

Who had De Bruyne/Mourinho in the narrative pairings raffle?

— Jack Lang (@jacklang) September 10, 2016

Couldn't be more happier for De Bruyne. Mourinho never gave him a chance, just bullied him in the media. Boom.
