Kevin de Bruyne has once again been named in Gazzetta dello Sport’s European Team of the Week.

Pep Guardiola’s men beat Arsenal 3-1 on Sunday and saw their Premier League lead extended. De Bruyne played a big part in the victory, scoring the first goal against Arsenal, and for many he was Man of the Match.
Gazzetta pick De Bruyne as one of three Premier League performances meriting recognition, and inclusion in today’s team. The side also includes stars such as Edinson Canavi and Arjen Robben.
De Bruyne has two goals and six assists so far this season in the Premier League, added to a goal and three assists in the Champions League.
Arsenal had been on a reasonable run before the match, with their previous defeat coming against Watford on October 14th.
