Kevin De Bruyne was the star of the show as new Premier League champions Manchester City outclassed Swansea City in a 5-0 win at the Etihad Stadium this evening.
The Belgian scored a 25-yard screamer on the same day that he could be crowned PFA Player of the Year, an award he is vying for with Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah.
David Silva, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus were also on the scoresheet as the Citizens moved onto 90 points – five short of Chelsea’s all-time Premier League high total with three games to play.
There was a party atmosphere at Eastlands after Manchester United’s defeat to West Bromwich Albion last weekend handed the title to City, who put on the football to match.
It took them only 12 minutes to open the scoring as Silva volleyed across Lukasz Fabianski and into the bottom corner from close range, after intelligent passes from Sterling and De Bruyne in the build-up.
Sterling soon got in on the act himself, tapping home Fabian Delph’s cross from inside the six-yard box after the converted left-back had exchanged a cute one-two with Silva inside the left edge of the area.
A string of stops from Fabianski helped Swansea limit the damage before the break as he denied Jesus and Bernardo, and also kept out a left-footed piledriver from De Bruyne with a full-stretch diving save.
