Manchester City crushed Wolverhampton with a landslide score of 5-1 in the 2021/22 Premier League duel, Thursday (12/5/2022). Kevin De Bruyne scored four of those goals.

The match at Molineux Stadium is clearly one-sided. Not according to predictions, Wolves turned out to have difficulty keeping up with Man City’s game, almost without a fight.

The score was 1-1 in the first 15 minutes, but after that Wolves could no longer hold Man City. Kevin De Bruyne scored four goals (7′, 16′, 24′, 60′), Raheem Sterling finished it (84′).

De Bruyne’s four goals proved his quality as one of Man City’s best players this season.

Four goals in one game is an extraordinary record for De Bruyne, especially because he is not a striker. In fact, De Bruyne more often build attacks from behind.

These goals are also proof of how scary Man City can be if the game goes smoothly. Every player can score goals, especially the midfielders.

According to Opta’s records, De Bruyne has scored 56 goals in the Premier League so far and interestingly there is not a single header in that record.

De Bruyne’s four goals in this match also immediately boosted his name in the Premier League’s temporary top scorer list. Now De Bruyne has scored 15 goals, just like Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane.

If drawn more broadly, De Bruyne’s total has been involved in 200 goals in 305 games for Man City in all competitions. That contribution is divided into 84 goals and 116 assists.

This 2021/22 season is also De Bruyne’s best season in terms of scoring goals. He has scored a total of 17 goals in all competitions.

Interestingly, if De Bruyne’s statistics are dissected more deeply, the Belgian midfielder’s game is fairly effective. Against Wolves, De Bruyne had four shots on target, and all four managed to become goals.

De Bruyne also helped the team with 2 good chances and 3 through balls. 84% accuracy of the pass shows the effectiveness of De Bruyne’s game.
