Man City star De Bruyne: We're ruthless compared to previous year

  • Eden Hazard Manchester clubs are stronger but Chelsea still a contender

After eight matches, the Pep Guardiola-managed side are on top of the English Premier League (EPL) table with 22 points, winning seven matches and drawing one.

City, though, have already laid a significant marker this season with wins over top-four rivals Liverpool and Chelsea as well as Tuesday night's victory over Serie A leaders Napoli in the Champions League.

United finished three places below City in sixth last season but have been boosted by the form of De Bruyne's worldwide teammate Romelu Lukaku, who has 11 goals in 11 appearances, following his £75 million move to Old Trafford in the summer.

"We always chat when we see each other and I have nothing but respect for the City set-up, the club's ambitions and the style of football they try and play".




'For the moment I think so, but everybody's still there, ' the Belgian playmaker told ESPN FC. It's hard to say.

De Bruyne heaped praise on the club's Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson Santana de Moraes and said he has started the season well. "I was playing constantly at a good level but I think the team is now playing at a very high level. It's not for me to do that discussion". For me it makes it easier to find people when they are playing in the way they are playing. "The way it looks at the moment is very positive". "He's doing a great job", De Bruyne said.

"It depends on everything - you need good play, the atmosphere needs to be good in the group, you need a little bit of luck, you need to be together to win a tournament and hopefully in that time we have it".

"Chelsea are going to be competing, they are going to be taking points off all of the teams around them, but I think ultimately the teams with the deepest squads - Man City and Man Utd will be very close [to winning the Premier League title]".
