Manchester City's fast growing reputation as the entertainers of the Barclays Premier League is something the club hopes to maintain, according to Gareth Barry.
Roberto Mancini's City slickers have scored seven goals in their opening two fixtures this season and have seemingly adopted a more attacking style than last season.
David Silva has been at the heart of everything for City so far, while record-signing Sergio Aguero has quickly adapted to the demands of the English game.
But Barry also deserves some plaudits for allowing his colleagues the freedom to express themselves, while the England international also scored a piledriver against Bolton on Sunday.
"We'd like to keep going, scoring goals and, hopefully, that's something we can do," he said.
"We spoke about being defensively solid last season, so we need to try and keep them out at the back.
"But if we can add the goals to it we don't mind entertaining as well.
"The players who have come in have left the manager with great options.
"Having said that, he hasn't moved away from the fact you always need to keep it tight at the back.
"If you're going to win the title you have to keep clean sheets. But I'm sure if we can add to the goals tally and keep them out at the other end as well, as we did last season, then we can go far."
