The Belgian curled a stunning effort into the bottom right corner from 25-yards to seal City’s 12th consecutive league victory and send the defending champions 13 points clear of the second-placed Blues.
The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Manchester City took another big step towards defending their Premier League title with a battling 1-0 win over rivals Chelsea.
The champions dominated for long periods but struggled to break down their compact visitors until Kevin De Bruyne broke the deadlock 20 minutes from time with a brilliant goal from the edge of the box.
Although seemingly off balance and with a pass to Raheem Sterling the obvious move, De Bruyne dug the ball out of his feet and curled a shot past the outstretched hand of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
It was the Belgian’s fifth goal against Chelsea and leaves his former club 13 points behind City with just 16 games remaining.
