De Bruyne takes 17 minutes to beat Man Utd ace Antony’s assist record for season




Kevin De Bruyne made a swift impact in his return to action, surpassing Antony’s assist record for the season within just 17 minutes.

Antony, a player who has struggled to find form this campaign, has not managed to secure any goals or assists in his 21 games for Manchester United.

De Bruyne, who had been sidelined due to injury since the beginning of the season, made a comeback during the FA Cup third round against Huddersfield.

Coming off the bench in the 57th minute, he quickly showcased his impact by setting up a goal for Jeremy Doku with a well-executed one-two with Oscar Bobb and a subsequent precise chip to the back post.

Despite having played only 82 minutes of football, De Bruyne has already tallied two assists for the season, a stark contrast to Antony’s goalless and assist-less run of over 1200 minutes in all competitions.

Manchester City convincingly won the match against Huddersfield with a 5-0 scoreline, courtesy of a Phil Foden brace, goals from Julian Alvarez and Doku, and an own goal by Ben Jackson.

With this victory, Manchester City has progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup, along with other top teams like Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool, who secured a 2-0 win against Arsenal.

The draw for the next round will take place on Monday at 7:50 pm during ITV’s coverage of Wigan vs. Manchester United. City, placed at number 21, will be hoping to avoid a fixture against another Premier League rival.

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.
