Schmeichel: Ederson could cost City title to Man U or Chelsea

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola says his side can still get better and if that was not a possibility, there was no point.

De Bruyne has been a huge reason for City's success this season, with two goals and seven assists in 11 games in all competitions so far, most recently providing an assist in the club's 2-1 win over 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. I think previous year we played good football but, especially in the big games, we didn't win them.

"It's nice to have it but I prefer it after we have a title", De Bruyne told ESPN FC as Manchester City announced details for their very first SkillCity national final being held in Pomona, California on Saturday, Dec. 9.

When highlighting the differences this season as compared to last term, he added: "Just that we're winning".

In the study, researchers conducted a "census" 60 nature reserves created in Germany over the past century. "This decrease has always been suspected but has turned out to be more severe than previously thought".

De Bruyne also has a big summer coming up with Belgium, who are one of eight teams seeded for the 2018 World Cup. "I was playing constantly at a good level but I think the team is now playing at a very high level".

"Are we the best?"

But Sean Dyche's side won't make it easy for them as they arrive with an unbeaten away record.

De Bruyne heaped praise on the club's Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson Santana de Moraes and said he has started the season well. "The way it looks at the moment is very positive".

"Especially at the moment, we are playing maybe a little bit better, but we're just building on what we did a year ago and, for the moment, everything is going well".
