Kevin De Bruyne was again the inspiration as Manchester City opened up a 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 3-0 win over West Brom.

City may have pulled out of a deadline day deal for Leicester's Riyad Mahrez but on the field it was business as usual at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne set up Fernandinho for City's opening goal and then added the second himself before a delightful late finish from Sergio Aguero wrapped up the win.

It proved a comfortable evening for record signing Aymeric Laporte to make his debut. His appearance was a surprise, after his £57million (Rs 514 crore) switch from Athletic Bilbao was confirmed only on Tuesday, but he was given a chance after John Stones fell ill.
