Kevin De Bruyne odds-on to break Thierry Henry’s record
The Manchester City star needs four more assists
Kevin De Bruyne is odds-on to break Thierry Henry’s record for most assists in a Premier League season.
Manchester City’s talisman has created 16 goals for his team-mates so far this season, four less than Henry managed for Arsenal in 2002/03.
And our traders have De Bruyne priced at 4/5 to surpass the Frenchman in the final eight games of the season.
He’s not yet registered an assist since football resumed, although he has disputed one with the Premier League after he supplied the pass which David Luiz diverted for Raheem Sterling’s goal against Arsenal last week.
“De Bruyne has been magnificent this season and has picked up where he left off,” said Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead.
“He needs five assists in the remaining games to break Henry’s record, and we make him odds-on to do it.
“He might well get a helping hand from the adjudicators at the Premier League as he seeks one for Sterling’s goal. Cesc Fabregas was famously awarded one after complaining during his spell at Chelsea.”
