Manchester City defender  John Stones lauds“incredible”duo players who helped the team over massive win

Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne are “amazing,” according to a Manchester City defender.

After Manchester City’s 3-0 win over Wolves, John Stones heaped praise on Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne.

Pep Guardiola’s team is still five points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal after Sunday’s games, despite Erling Haaland scoring his fourth hat-trick for City and reaching another great milestone.

The 22-year-old scored three goals in the Blues’ 3-0 win over Wolves, bringing his season total to 31 in all competitions.

Haaland started the scoring with a header and increased City’s lead in the second half with a well-taken penalty.

“Incredible player, incredible record that he’s got already, and I hope it continues and I’m sure it will because what a great professional he is, incredible player, incredible person, and I know how much he wants to do well, and do well for the team as well. Another hat-trick, I’ll be writing on his ball a little message after this.

“We have had a lot of good goals from different players coming off the bench, starting the games. Riyad (Mahrez) the other night. I don’t want to just put it all on him. We all need to chip in and we are doing but when he scores three in a game it’s difficult!

“I’m so pleased for him. He’s so clinical. I love Erling as a person and I think he’s an incredible player and he’s been so good for us so far and all the time that he’s been here.

“I don’t think that’s the last of it either, I think he’s got plenty more to come, he’s hungry, he’s ready to play, fight, score, whatever it is and I’m so pleased for him today.”

Stones was also quick to praise the impact of Kevin De Bruyne, who marked his return to the starting side after not featuring against Spurs in midweek with an assist which made the Belgian the highest assist provider in Europe’s top-five leagues.

“It doesn’t surprise me (his records). Again, congratulations to Kev – incredible achievement for him (to become the highest assist provider in Europe’s top-five leagues).

“You can put a ball wherever on the pitch and he’ll create chances, and that’s why he’s a world class player. He keeps coming up with these things.”
