The Man City fans in the Tavern certainly think he is…
When Man City signed Kevin De Bruyne, a few eyebrows were raised in the Tavern – especially considering the very little impact that he made at Chelsea prior to his Stamford Bridge departure.
Despite being given an opportunity by Mourinho, De Bruyne never really managed to gain a foothold with the Blues – and so a departure was seemingly inevitable. However, just a few years later – Man City came calling – and nobody could have predicted what was to follow.
What had left as something very small had returned as something huge – and Kevin De Bruyne immediately began to prove Chelsea’s decision to sell him wrong.
This season he has continued his fine form – and in truth – the Man City fans think that he is turning into somewhat of a talisman at the Etihad.
It would appear that they are correct, too, with this stat provided by OptaJoe seemingly declaring Kevin De Bruyne as Man City’s lucky charm…
As per Opta Joe on Twitter, Kevin De Bruyne has featured in 22 league games in 2016 without losing – which is the most of any other player in the entire Premier League.

Wow! Who expected that?!
Everyone knows how good De Bruyne has been since his arrival, but this stat would seem to suggest that Man City are unbeatable when De Bruyne is playing.
The Chelsea fans in the Tavern are really beginning to regret that sale…
