With his sublime disguised free-kick pass to Julian Alvarez, Kevin De Bruyne moved into outright third place in the Premier League's all-time assists charts. 

Alvarez's goal in Manchester City's match against Burnley on Wednesday was the 104th that De Bruyne has set up in the competition.

It moved him above former Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney, with only Ryan Giggs and Cesc Fabregas setting up more goals in the competition than De Bruyne, one of only five players in Premier League history with 100+ assists.

Most Premier League assists
Player Matches Assists
Ryan Giggs 632 162
Cesc Fabregas 350 111
Kevin De Bruyne 245 104
Wayne Rooney 491 103
Frank Lampard 609 102

Having returned from injury to make his first start since the opening weekend in Wednesday's match against Burnley, De Bruyne will now look to close in on second place in the all-time rankings.

The 32-year-old is only seven behind Fabregas, and has played more than 100 matches fewer than the former Arsenal and Chelsea playmaker.
