Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne is the "perfect player" insists Manuel Pellegrini.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini called Kevin De Bruyne "the perfect player" after the midfielder scored Seville during stoppage-time to hand the Citizens a vital win.

De Bruyne's last minute winner was his fifth goal for City and Pellegrini - who was delighted with the win - said: "We bought Kevin because we thought he was a very creative player, he has goals in him.

"This team always tries to play attractive and offensive football and for that you need good players. In all senses he was the perfect player to arrive to our team," the Daily Mirror reported.

"I think it was very important for him to score. We tried to make some change because we weren't getting into their box or creating chances. Fortunately we created that play that produced the goal."

The Chilean also felt the win was a boost for his side ahead of the derby clash against Manchester United this weekend.

"When you win it's very important for the confidence of the players going into an important game like the derby," he added.
