Kevin De Bruyne delivered one of the most sensational passes you’ll see all year, and Raheem Sterling finished it off to give Manchester City a 2-1 win over Arsenal at the Eithad.

From nothing, off a throw in just inside City’s own half, de Bruyne twisted his body while facing his own goal and somehow thumped the ball 40-50 yards across the pitch and down the right, falling right into the path of Sterling.

The finish was nearly as good, as the run left Sterling with plenty of work to do. The former Liverpool winger cut back inside and surprised Petr Cech by firing inside the near post for a 2-1 lead.

The win for Manchester City sees them into third place, while Arsenal drifts nine points back of the table leaders.
