Kevin De Bruyne believes the Premier League title is being battled for by Manchester City and Manchester United, but admits it could all change.
Manchester City have charged to the top of the table, with seven wins and one draw putting them two points clear at the top.
United are also unbeaten, but have drawn more than De Bruyne and City and are three points ahead of third placed Tottenham.
De Bruyne said it appeared the title battle was between City and United – for now.
“For the moment I think so, but everybody’s still there,” the Belgium international told ESPN FC .
“It’s so early, if you lose two or three games you go back to a [lower] position. We have to maintain this hopefully.”
De Bruyne believes City are producing the types of performances their Spaniard boss wants.
“I think we’re pretty much what he wants,” he said.
“Obviously one game is going [to be] better than the other ones and one time we will look more like his team than another, but I think the way we play is always the same.
“We play dominant football and like to put a lot of pressure on them and if you can do that, it works well. It’s hard to go full pace all the time but at the moment everyone is in great shape.”
