Man City playmaker named in Premier League Champion's team of best Matchweek 2 performers after two assists against Spurs

A star display from Kevin De Bruyne has earned the Manchester City midfielder a place in Alan Shearer's Team of the Week.

The brilliant Belgian set up both of his side's goals in a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur to take his assist tally for the season to three.

Shearer, a Premier League Champion and the competition's all-time leading goalscorer, says De Bruyne must be a delight for the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, describing him as "a forward's dream".
