Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has sent out a warning to the rest of the Premier League by insisting his side will get better as the season progresses.
The Citizens maintained their perfect start to the campaign with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon and looked irresistible at times on Merseyside, with David Silva particularly in stunning form.
Second half goals from defender Aleksandar Kolarov and substitute Samir Nasri were enough to give the visitors all three points and equal a club-record of nine successive league victories.
City, who are yet to concede in their opening three games of the new season, have not tasted defeat since the 4-2 reverse in the derby at Old Trafford against Manchester United back in April and Pellegrini says his squad are desperate to maintain their unbeaten run:
“Yes, I think so,” the Chilean said [via Mirror Sport].
“Because I see the way they work every day, it’s very important, especially when everyone is saying you are playing so well it’s very easy to be comfortable.”
“But I see every day they are improving.”
“We are continuing the way we finished last season and if you want to win silverware, you have to be consistent,” Pellegrini added.
City welcome newly promoted Watford to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to make it four wins from four games heading into the international break.
