  • Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring on 19 minutes for the runaway Premier League leaders, but Dortmund grabbed a vital away goal when Erling Haaland teed up Marco Reus to equalise six minutes from time
  • The Algerian started a brilliant team move as De Bruyne, Foden and Mahrez exchanged passes before the Belgian tapped home from close range
  • De Bruyne was the creator again as his cross found Ilkay Gundogan at the back post and his cut-back was swept home by a relieved Foden
