The Belgian's streak of assists in consecutive matches from the beginning of a campaign has matched Cesc Fabregas's return in 2014/15.
Only Henry has started a season with a longer run of appearances with an assist, with the Arsenal legend putting together a run of five matches in 2004/05.
De Bruyne now has the chance to match him at Norwich City on Saturday.
Henry and Fabregas created seven and six goals respectively during their sequences, which are the most by a player five matches into a season.
De Bruyne has set up five goals this term so if he lays on another two at Carrow Road he will equal that Henry feat, too.

*after four matches
Should that happen, De Bruyne might turn his attentions to a record held by a current Arsenal star.
Mesut Ozil assisted in seven straight matches between September and November in 2015, the most at any point of a Premier League season.
Whether he can equal Henry's record of 20 assists over the course of a season, achieved in 2002/03, is another matter.
De Bruyne, who continued his excellent form on Monday with three assists and a goal in Belgium's 4-0 UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying victory against Scotland, is the early leader in the race for the Cadbury Playmaker of the Year award.
The brilliant Belgian claimed the accolade in 2017/18 and also provided the most assists the season before that.
