Man City midfielder Kalvin Phillips has named Kevin De Bruyne as the best player at Manchester City over City’s goal poacher Erling Haaland.

Also, Arsenal left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko also praised his former Manchester City teammate by using one word to sum him up: “masterclass”.

Phil Foden also claimed that the 32-year-old is “one of the best passers in the world.”

Speaking to club media at West Ham United (via their official Instagram account), when Kalvin Phillips was quizzed about the best player he has ever played with so far, he named Kevin De Bruyne.
