Thierry, I’m coming for you’ – De Bruyne fires warning to Premier League assist king Henry

The Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is keen to overhaul the Frenchman’s Premier League assists record if the season resumes
Kevin De Bruyne has told Thierry Henry he is gunning for his Premier League assists record.

The Manchester City midfielder had laid on a remarkable 16 goals in England’s top flight this season before the campaign was placed on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak last month.

The Belgium international reached 18 during the 2016-17 season and, in an interview with The Athletic’s Ornstein & Chapman podcast, joked he was irked not to be on 17 already this time around – referencing Raheem Sterling’s goal in a 3-0 December win at Arsenal that came courtesy of his slightly deflected cross.
