CHRIS SUTTON: Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne is the greatest ever passer in the Premier League

  • Kevin De Bruyne span Premier League champions Liverpool silly on Thursday
  • He combines qualities of Paul Scholes, David Beckham and Dennis Bergakmp 
  • No matter where he is told to play, the Belgian star becomes the best at it 

Is Kevin De Bruyne the greatest passer in the Premier League history? I found myself wondering that while watching him spin Liverpool silly on Thursday night, and can’t think of anyone better. 

He has the range of Paul Scholes. He has the crossing expertise of David Beckham. He has the poise of Dennis Bergkamp. 

No matter what position Pep Guardiola tells him to play in, he becomes the best at it.

I know we gush about the 29-year-old Belgian regularly, but when he puts in a performance such as this, you simply have to applaud the best player in the Premier League. 

With all of this in mind, do you then name him Player of the Year? I’m afraid not. That title belongs to Virgil van Dijk for his influence in Liverpool being crowned champions. 

The visitors, after a well-deserved few days on the lash, started well here. But the hosts won’t have enjoyed giving their opponents a guard of honour and came out with a point to prove. They did that, with De Bruyne the chief tormentor.

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk should be Premier League Player of the Year ahead of De Bruyne
