Kevin De Bruyne has been crowned Manchester City's first ever PFA Player of the Year on Tuesday night.

The Belgian equalled Thierry Henry's Premier League record of 20 assists in a single season as City finished a distant second to Premier League champions Liverpool.

De Bruyne edged out team-mate Raheem Sterling, who became the first City player to finish a campaign with more goals than Sergio Aguero since the Argentine's arrival in 2011.
