We've scored a ridiculous amount of goals: Navas

Manchester City winger Jesus Navas has labelled the amount of goals that the club have scored so far this season as "ridiculous."

The Spaniard, who was a £15 million summer signing from Sevilla, scored twice in the recent home demolition of Tottenham, and he believes they are playing football the way it should be played.

He told the Sunday People: "The team had been scoring quite a lot of goals previously, but what we're doing this year is ridiculous - we're scoring so many!

"We play free-flowing football with plenty of players involved in the build-up play. That's the way to score goals and it's important to get forward in numbers. Everything is positive."

The 28-year old added: "It's just great playing in a team like this, especially the enjoyment for the fans and for us, too."

City have notched an impressive 41 goals in their opening 10 games, with 13 of those coming in their last two matches at the Etihad,

One of the reasons for this is down to the wealth of attacking talent brought in by manager Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, and he is delighted with the progress of his new signings.

He said: "Negredo, Navas, Martin Demichelis and Fernandinho have all done very well.

“We’re very sure about the players we brought here because I knew them all very well."

City will be hoping to continue their excellent home form when they host Swansea City this afternoon.
