De Bruyne plays down invincible claim

Manchester City’s impeccable start to the season has got many people speculating just how far they can go in the campaign unbeaten.

The Sky Blues have rocketed in every competition they have played a part in so far this season, and it is fair to say that they are currently the most feared team in Europe.

Pep Guardiola has got his men playing scarily good football, and some believe we could see a side that rivals that of Arsenal’s invincible’s back in the 2003/04 season.

However, star man Kevin De Bruyne does not think so, and despite his side sitting top of the Premier League table unbeaten with 11 games played he thinks it is too much to ask of his side.

“I don’t think that will be possible because I think you have so many games and too many important games,” he told Sky Sports News.

“The power of the Premier League means every team has a lot of money and every team has a lot of quality players, so I think one day or another you will face a team who find a system to beat you, or they have a better day.”

De Bruyne also played down claims from his Belgium manager Roberto Martinez, who said he could become as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I don’t care. I really don’t care,” he said. “People compare too many players with each other, you have too many good players in the world. In the end, I will only win individual awards if I win something with City.

“I try to play the way I am playing at the moment and obviously the way we are playing is very positive and for us it’s nice.

“Everybody is in the same spirit. We want to play the football that we play.”
