Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has showered praises on city midfielder Kevin De Bruyne after an astonishing performance in which he had a hand in five of City’s goals against The Hornets on Saturday at the Etihad stadium.

The Spaniard admitted to the Belgian’s brilliance, stating his vision took even his teammates by surprise and that he could only get angry at him for his consistent brilliance.

De Bruyne claimed two assists against Watford, he took the corner from which Bernardo Silva scored after Nicolas Otamendi’s flick-on and was behind the quick free-kick that saw Sergio Aguero tee up Otamendi and ultimately wrapped up the Hornets humiliation with a goal for himself to make sure City continued their unwavering dominance against Watford.

“Kevin sometimes is a special player, sometimes he sees something the other guys cannot see on the pitch, not even off [it],” the City boss said.

“Sometimes I’m a little bit [angry] when the simple ball you lose it, how with your quality you can lose it? But he is incredibly talented player, and sometimes you miss it from here, loses it from here but sometimes his vision up front and the quality he has [is incredible].”

“Only with Kevin sometimes it depends on his mood, sometimes he is a little bit like this [angry] when he is a little bit not happy in that way,” he said.

“He is an incredible and fantastic guy, we knew we miss him a lot. We did an incredible season winning four titles but we miss him last season a lot because he is a special player.”

City spent £55million on signing De Bruyne from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015, a deal that was mocked in some places at the time, particularly in a now infamous clip where Paul Merson and Phil Thompson criticised the high fee.

But that fee now looks like small change, with De Bruyne perhaps the Premier League’s standout player, having been involved in 117 goals in his 182 appearances for the club.
“I am happy that he is here, happy for the club when nobody knew him or nobody talked about him and the club were there and said he can help us,” said Guardiola.

“I am happy for him because the first season he was incredible, without him it would not be possible, but he struggled a little bit for the [last] season and I am happy we can have this continuity to take minutes.”

City will now travel to Preston to face Preston North End in the third round of the English Football League Cup on Tuesday after which they play Everton on Saturday at Goodison park.
