Toure plays down Invincibles tag

Kolo Toure has urged his Manchester City teammates not to take notice of reports comparing them to the Arsenal Invincibles.

The Gunners went the entirety of the of 2003-2004 season unbeaten on their way to the league title, and City have started campaign in impressive fashion.

Roberto Mancini's side have won 11 and drawn two of their 13 outings in the Barclays Premier League so far, and currently sit five points clear of their nearest rivals.

Unsurprisingly, City are heavy favourites to remain top of the pile come May, but Toure has urged caution at the Etihad Stadium.

The Ivorian was part of that historic Arsenal side, and says it is important to simply take each game as it comes.

"We started very well but now we just need to forget about it," he said. "Just try to win game by game, and as long as you play game by game, it's fantastic.

"We don't think about this record. We just want to play as well as we can every single game.

"When you start thinking about it, you play without control. For me, we just need to relax, go out, do our best and win the game.

"At Arsenal, we never thought about it, it never came into my mind. It was taking it game by game and trying to win."
