“Kevin De Bruyne has done that over the years he has been here, some outrageous passes where you think 'I don't know how he's done that.' It came straight to me - it's something we can only dream of and he can do it when he wants." John Stones said.

John Stones

 was amazed by 

Kevin De Bruyne

's opener.

Although he scored twice in 

Manchester City

 4-0 victory over 

Crystal Palace

, one of the major subjects of talking was De Bruyne's 100th assist for the club.

John Stones said: 

“Kevin De Bruyne has done that over the years he has been here, some outrageous passes where you think 'I don't know how he's done that.' It came straight to me - it's something we can only dream of and he can do it when he wants."

He commented upon his own performance in that match and said: 

"Two goals for myself, it's been a long time!

"My last one was against Manchester United, I know that. I put pressure on myself to score goals, I need to contribute and bring that to my game. Today it clicked and the hard work on the training pitch on set pieces is paying off.”

Stones has worked hard to earn himself a starting berth at the Etihad after a long period on the periphery.

“It's tough when you're not playing or don't perform to your best. I went back to basics, looked at myself first and what I could improve. I had to keep fighting and keep believing in myself. I did that, kept the faith and kept grinding away.

“I'm still trying to improve.”

He also reflected on the team's well defense: 

"If we can keep clean sheets we don't have to come out and score four goals every week. The whole team deserve credit for how they press and stop attacks coming to us,"
