James Milner believes that the best from Manchester City is still to come, despite the club enjoying success that has seen them thrash title favourites Manchester United at Old Trafford over the weekend.
City are now in the lead for domestic honours, with a five point advantage over their cross-town rivals.
And Milner believes that new signings Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero haven’t hit their best yet, despite the pair both starring for the Citizens so far this season.
"We want to keep improving as a team as well - we can get better," Milner told the Manchester Evening News.
"You have to keep your feet on the ground but it's also a case of riding the wave as well. We are back in for cool-down training today and then looking at Wednesday because we want to do well in every competition.
"The confidence is there and it's about keeping this momentum, putting in good performances and getting the results."
Milner is refusing to get caught up in the hype surrounding City’s win over United, insisting that the season has a long way to go before the club can look at winning trophies.
"It's special going to United, and it's always going to be a tough game. We are big rivals so to get a win is great - and to win like that is fantastic,” he explained.
"But we have to remember that it is just one result and is just early days in the season so we have to keep our feet on the ground.
"It is only three points, as it would have been if we had beaten anyone else. It's a great result for us as a club and as a team - and not forgetting the fans as well!"
