Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne becomes the fastest player to register 50 Premier League assists, beating the record previously held by Arsenal's Mesut Ozil.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has become the fastest player in Premier League history to register 50 assists in the competition.

The Belgian playmaker brought up the landmark with a fortuitous set-up for Sergio Aguero during this afternoon's match against Bournemouth, missing his kick but seeing the ball fall to the feet of the Argentine, who tucked his finish into the bottom corner.

De Bruyne has now notched up 50 assists in just 123 Premier League games - comfortably quicker than previous record-holder Mesut Ozil, who took 141 outings to reach the milestone.

Three other Premier League legends make up the top five, with Eric Cantona (143), Dennis Bergkamp (146) and Cesc Fabregas (165) having also brought up the half-century quickly.
