Kevin de Bruyne stole the show as Manchester City regained their six-point lead at the top of the English Premier League table on Sunday evening with a convincing 4-1 win over rivals Man United. 

The Belgian scored a brace and added an assist in what was one of the best individual performances from the City captain.

De Bruyne, who had a spell at Chelsea before joining Wolfsburg, has now scored 51 Premier League goals and provided 81 assists, bringing his total tally to 132.

But where does the 30-year-old sit on the list of midfielders with the most Premier League goal involvements since the league was formed in 1992?

James Milner is the only active player currently above the Belgian magician, with only seven former Premier League stars ahead of him on the list.

At the top of the list are arguably three of the best midfielders England ever produced; Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, and Paul Scholes.

Lampard scored an astonishing 177 goals while assisting a further 102 during a hugely successful career with Chelsea.

Only five players have scored more Premier League goals than Lampard: Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole, and Sergio Aguero.

Behind him is Gerrard, who has a total of 212 goal involvements (120 goals, 92 assists) during his time with Liverpool.
