Jamie Carragher has said that Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been the best player in the Premier League this season.

The former Liverpool defender has said that although Anfield forward Mohamed Salah was the best player in the first half of the campaign, De Bruyne has been better in the second half and has been key to City being on the brink of winning the Premier League title for the second season in a row.

De Bruyne has made 24 starts and five substitute appearances in the league for Pep Guardiola’s side this campaign, scoring 15 goals and providing seven assists in the process.

City are rated at 1/12 on Betfair to win the Premier League title this season.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “Salah was no doubt the best player in the first half of the season but De Bruyne was in the second half. 

“You just think of the vital goals he got. Up against Atletico Madrid, United and Liverpool. For me, I think he is the best player in the league. I love Kevin De Bruyne. 

“Take Liverpool out of the equation, if I want to watch someone, I watch Kevin De Bruyne. I think he is going to be one of the all-time greats in the Premier League.”
