The strong start certainly has former Manchester United captain Keane impressed with the way City are playing, but he's still not a believer that they can sustain their form. 

"They're playing well. We obviously know trophies aren't given out at this time of year but, my goodness, they are playing some outstanding stuff," he said speaking to ITV. "They have momentum behind them.

"My only concern for City at the moment is that I think it is in their DNA as a club to mess things up," he added.

"They have previous where they've got carried away. But you look at their squad and the players they have if they get a bit of luck with injuries and the coach, and they'll take some stopping."

City host Arsenal on Sunday in their final Premier League match before the upcoming international break.
