What a wonderful start to the new season! Manchester City players and manager Pep Guardiola can be happy with their performances but one of the main stars, Kevin De Bruyne, is sure that this won’t last forever and his side is going to be beaten at some point of the season.
10 Premier League games? 28 points with just one draw.Three Champions League fixtures? Three wins. An amazing season? Yes, so far. But Kevin De Bruyne remains realistic as he predicts his side not to stay unbeaten through the rest of the Premier League season. Arsenal were the last team to manage to do so but it happened back in the 2003/04 season…
The Belgium international doesn’t think that his team will be able to keep this up as he said, according to Sky Sports: “To go unbeaten? Well, it’s very hard. I don’t think it will be possible. The level of competition is so high, in every team. It’s not like, with all respect, 10 or 15 years ago where you have a couple of teams that won’t win against the top teams. Now, every game is hard and you need to be mentally there. And with the Champions League and all the cups, there will be a game where maybe we are a little bit less and maybe lose. But as long as it keeps going, it’s good.”
He wants to take full advantage of his team’s current form though: “Obviously, if you win a lot of games it’s good for us. You keep maintaining pressure. Hopefully, we can have two good games this week and go into the international break unbeaten and it will mean we put a lot of pressure on the rest.”
His team are about to face Napoli away from home and they can secure a knock-out spot place there: “We know if we go to Napoli and win then we’ll have qualified. That would be a nice position.”
