Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists that his side can still improve, despite netting 17 goals without reply during four matches in September.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed that his side still have room for improvement despite their blistering start to the new Premier League season.

City sit top of the standings on goal difference and Guardiola watched his team score 17 goals without reply during four matches in September, form which led to the Spaniard winning the Manager of the Month award.

However, while acknowledging that he has been impressed with his side's performances, Guardiola has hinted that he is demanding more from his players ahead of the meeting with Stoke City.

The 46-year-old told reporters: "I am so happy with what we have done of course but still we have a good gap to improve but I am really impressed.

"Stoke will be a tough tough game, they are so defensive, the back five is well organised and they have a good goalkeeper."

Striker Sergio Aguero could feature on the bench for City after returning to training after a rib injury.
