Pep Guardiola's side romped to a 5-1 win against Leicester at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday with Aguero scoring four times in the second half, but De Bruyne took numerous plaudits for pulling the strings in midfield and setting up City's first three goals.
Pep Guardiola's side took just three minutes to open the scoring at Etihad Stadium as winger Raheem Sterling stroked in his 20th goal of the season from a De Bruyne through ball.
However, Aguero took centre stage with a finishing masterclass after the break to take his tally in City's last seven home games to 14 goals.
Leicester had equalised through Jamie Vardy after Sterling's opening goal before City took command of the game thanks to Aguero, whose second two goals - an audacious chip and a powerful strike from the edge of the box - were particularly eye-catching.
"We conceded a lot of chances in the first half, maybe got a little lucky, so at half time I tried to change things a little bit".
De Bruyne, meanwhile, has registered more assists than any other player in Europe's top five leagues since 2012.

Yes, I'll Speak To Virgil van Dijk Ahead of Southampton Return
The game started as it meant to go on with Ahmed Hegazi's header putting the home side ahead. They will want to show their quality but we have our own targets.
This was the third time the City forward has scored four goals or more in a Premier League match.
Anyone who knows Riyad will know the ability that he has got, and he'll be bitterly disappointed not to have been able to go to a club where he could potentially win four trophies this year, and I think everybody gets and respects that.
And Puel claimed both he and the Algeria worldwide will focus their efforts on the rest of the season without any issues. Riyad came back. He perhaps made a mistake but it's important to have our best players with us.
"He fought, he played really good and he scored goals and it's so important, we needed it".
"I wish he can come back as soon as possible and play, he's an extraordinary player and everyone enjoys watching the better players".
"Now it is about time to move on together and of course we are stronger with him".
