Manchester City are looking unstoppable right now.

After an underwhelming first season in the Premier League, Pep Guardiola has transformed his Manchester City side into world beaters.

City's front line has been at its free flowing best in recent weeks, with Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and David Silva spearheading an attack which has scored almost at will.

Many suggested that City had their frailties at the back, but they have answered the critics with clean sheets in six of their last seven games in all competitions.

As a result, teams have been unable to cope with Guardiola's side, and they find themselves in first in the Premier League and in a great position to progress to the last 16 of the Champions League.

Manchester City's toughest test so far this season definitely came in the shape of Chelsea, but again they managed to brush aside their rivals with ease.

Although the 1-0 scoreline looks as if they struggled to victory, the Manchester club were rarely troubled and Ederson was barely tested in the away side's goal.

Chelsea were resilient in defence for much of the game as they managed to hold off City's star studded attack, but former player Kevin De Bruyne eventually scored the winner in the 67th minute to stun the home crowd.

It was an absolute cracker from the Belgian, who punished the side that let him go three years ago with a 20 yard thunderbolt to clinch the points for the away side.

In the aftermath of the game, the match winner reflected on his time at Chelsea, in a spell which yielded only nine appearances in all competitions.

Speaking to BT Sport, the world-class midfielder said "That's the past.

"What happened, happened. I've no regrets over coming here. It made me stronger in a lot of ways.

"I made a decision at the time, Chelsea made a profit and I did what was best for me.

Turning his attention to the match, De Bruyne continued "We had more chances than Chelsea – not too many but a little bit. It's a nice goal.

"Everyone fought until the end and it's a very nice win because it's difficult to win here."

Since making the £55 million move to Manchester, the Belgium International has proven with a string of impressive performances that he was worth every penny that his current side paid for him.

Although Chelsea did indeed make a profit, they would most definitely rather have Kevin De Bruyne still in their ranks.
