Jesus Navas said Manchester City’s 6-0 thrashing of Tottenham on Sunday was the highlight of his career in England so far.
The World Cup winner has been in and out of the City side since completing a move from Sevilla in July but believes he produced his best performance to date against Andre Villas-Boas’ team.
Navas opened his Premier League account with a goal after 14 seconds and scored again in injury time, as well as setting up the first of Sergio Aguero’s brace.
And the winger admitted it was unusual for him to score more goals than he created, but relished his double.
"On a personal level, this was my best game for sure," the Daily Mirror quotes him as saying. "Scoring twice and also claiming an assist.
"I've always been known more for giving assists rather than scoring, but, of course, I enjoy scoring goals too. If I can score more here, then that would be great.
"I like making other people happy. That's why I've always been known for assists, but if I score more, then it helps."
