£55m man Kevin de Bruyne has continued his good form his record breaking move to Manchester City, with his third goal for the club against Tottenham this afternoon.
The Belgian star has taken to his new surroundings like a duck to water, after previous strikes against West Ham and Sunderland since joining from Wolfsburg – to the delight of his new fans.
The assurance with which @DeBruyneKev scored, and with which he has played in 3 games, is amazing. Speaks of real quality

Where last season we was known for his assists, the former Chelsea man has showed Jose Mourinho what he’s missing since returning to the Premier League.
The thing that makes De Bruyne so good is that everyone knows that you can't give him space yet he keeps finding it.

De Bruyne has hit the ground running. Looks so calm and doing his business.

He raced through to slot past Spurs ‘keeper Hugo Lloris, calmly finishing a gut busting run to open the scoring.
What's weird is that I remember De Bruyne doing well for Chelsea when he played.

The 24-year failed to impose himself on Mourinho’s plans while at Stamford Bridge, but looked to undertake a complete transformation while plying his trade in the Bundesliga.
The £55m price tag is starting to look like money well spent, despite a few eyebrows raised when the deal was initially announced.
Turns out this De Bruyne lad is pretty good at football, if he keeps playing this way he's price tag won't matter
