KEVIN De Bruyne struck twice as Manchester City competed a stunning 7-0 demolition of Leeds last night.

Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez, John Stones and Nathan Ake also got on the scoresheet as the champions swatted aside the West Yorkshire outfit with ease at the Etihad Stadium.

It was a seventh successive victory that extended City’s lead at the top of the table to four points, applying pressure to rivals Liverpool and Chelsea ahead of their games tomorrow night.

Leeds had a let-off as the in-form Bernardo Silva put a gilt-edged chance wide but the reprieve was short-lived as Foden opened the scoring on eight minutes.

Rodri powered into the box after combining with Foden but Leeds keeper Illan Meslier managed to block. The ball rebounded to Foden and the England man expertly guided it into the net.

Another followed just five minutes later after Mahrez sent a curling ball back into the box and Grealish headed past Meslier.

De Bruyne, back to his best after a recent spell out with Covid-19, had an effort saved by Meslier but then made no mistake as he raced onto a Rodri ball to thump in the third on 32 minutes.

City’s fourth came four minutes into the second half when Mahrez’s shot was deflected in off Junior Firpo.

Leeds threatened briefly and Stuart Dallas hit the post but substitute Ilkay Gundogan was inches away from adding another for City as he volleyed wide.

The fifth came soon as De Bruyne unleashed a ferocious drive from outside the box that flew into the roof of the net.

Stones made it 6-0 following a corner, tucking home after Meslier had saved an Aymeric Laporte header and Stones’ initial effort on the rebound.

Substitute Ake wrapped up the scoring with a powerful header from a corner 12 minutes from time.
