Naturally, De Bruyne's pass sent social media wild, with some people disputing whether he meant it or not.
One Twitter user wrote: "De Bruyne's passing is just ridiculous."
A second tweeted: "Kevin De Bruyne the greatest passer the Premier League has ever seen."
A third added: "If De Bruyne meant that reverse pass, then that is sensational. Would've been the one of the assists of the season."
Another commented: "If De Bruyne meant that pass... wow."
De Bruyne went one better in the opening minutes of the second-half as he bagged a sensational free-kick.
He stroked the ball off the post and in the back of the net to hand his team all three points.
Speaking after the game, De Bruyne said: "We made it a little bit difficult. I think we were tired. They [Leicester] were negative for 70 minutes but then it changed.
"We still could have scored the second. In the end it was a good victory.
"We always have to be better. I've been doing fairly good but some games better than others... We created enough. It's tough against a team who play 11 behind the ball. We have proven we can win without and without."
The Blues move above Arsenal to the top of the league, with the Gunners back in action on Sunday.
