Kevin De Bruyne produced a breathtaking performance in City's 7-2 win over Stoke.
The Belgian played a key role in five of the Blues' goals, claiming two stunning assists for Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane.
The playmaker was at the heart of the league leaders' best attacks and also boasted a pass completion rate of 91%.
He was unfortunate not to write his own name onto the scoresheet, having been denied by a fine Jack Butland save.
De Bruyne received a standing ovation - from both sets of fans - when he left the action to be replaced by Yaya Toure.
