Pep Guardiola is refusing to allow complacency to set in and says there’s always room for a side to improve.
“It is better to be in that position but it's just September, there's a long time, a lot of games still to play,” he said.
“The players know it is September. The last years always Manchester City start good and after were not able to achieve the results. We go game by game and focus on all competitions. Game by game.
“My feeling is a lot of times we play in that way last season but in the boxes we were not good.
“On Saturday, they had two chances one with Loftus Cheek and last season that was a goal. We scored a goal in the last minute of the half and last season that did not happen once.
“We are more comfortable now. When we play at home we feel we are going to score goals. How many chances we create and concede is quite similar to last season. The stability can go down.
“We have to be careful and work in our habits and our fundamentals. Always we can do better and this is another test.”
