John Stones has raved about his Manchester City teammate Kevin De Bruyne, claiming that it is “incredible” to play alongside the midfielder.

The Belgium international’s goal helped his side to celebrate a huge win over the Premier League rivals Chelsea at the weekend. As a result, the Citizens are 11 points clear of the second-placed Liverpool.

“We worked all week on our shape and how we shift across as a back four. We know the threat they have got with Lukaku and the other players that run in behind,” Stones said (via MEN).

“We worked on that and in these games I think a lot of it comes down to your concentration and being in the right areas on the ball in every opportunity.

“Those are the fine margins in this game when you’ve got such a strike force against you.

Speaking about De Bruyne and his contribution to the game, the defender added:

“And when Kevin goes and pops one in for us it makes things a lot better.

“He has popped up with so many great goals and that is the ability that Kev has got. It is incredible to play with him and have him in our team and it is great for him to get on the scoresheet as well.”
