Kevin De Bruyne, who picked up his 100th Premier League assist in the 4-1 victory over Southampton, paid tribute to his Manchester City teammate Erling Haaland.

Haaland scored a brace as Manchester City beat Southampton 4-1 with Jack Grealish and Julian Alvarez also on the scoresheet.

Haaland now has 30 Premier League goals this season following his brace against Southampton.

“He scores a lot of goals. It is insane. He is there. If we create chances he is there,” De Bruyne told Sky Sports. “It is a good combination. He knows what I want to do and I know what he wants to do.”

Haaland has scored 44 goals in all competitions for Man City this season – it’s the joint-most ever by a Premier League player in a single campaign, level with Ruud van Nistelrooy (2002-03) and Mohamed Salah (2017-18).
