Manchester City look unstoppable under Guardiola - Walker

Manchester City look unstoppable under Guardiola - Walker”

"It's about consistency, We need to play at the level we're playing at and we won't play too many who can cause us a problem", he said.

City find themselves at the top of the Premier League after six games - equal on points with fierce rivals Manchester United.

"I've faced him numerous times down the seasons and he always seemed to score against us".

Meanwhile, City are preparing to face Shakhtar Donetsk at home in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Aguero netted the 10th - yes 10th - hat-trick of his City career at Watford last weekend and now leads the Premier League scoring charts alongside Romelu Lukaku with five.

Guardiola says that it does not matter if Aguero keeps on missing out on those honours, though, because he has respect where it matters. "I'm pretty sure that in the next games it's going to happen".

Guardiola, who was speaking at his pre-match press conference, went on to praise Aguero for improving his all-round game.

There has been speculation about Aguero's future at the Etihad Stadium ever since Guardiola arrived in the summer of 2016, and it increased when he was left out of a couple of key fixtures last season.

Walker is keen to help Aguero keep on scoring, with the defender believing that his own attacking instincts are being sharpened by manager Pep Guardiola.

"[He scored] 20 Premier League goals last season, I think he should be looking to get 30 Premier League goals this year", the 47-year-old told the Manchester Evening News. He always wants more from us, which is good, to keep pushing us.

The Argentine's form so far could see him set for 30 goals this season, already averaging 1.19 goals per 90 minutes - a better average than each of the past three seasons in which he scored more than 20 goals. It is hard to say, "Come on Sergio try to be more involved in the game".

Kevin De Bruyne is another player who has been in fine form this season.

"He has to be proud and City has to be proud", said Guardiola. "He will die scoring goals; there is no doubt about that". They will hope to maintain the momentum against the Shakhtar but Guardiola expects a tough test from the Ukrainian champions. Napoli are one of the three or four or five best teams, playing football, in the world.

Guardiola said: "They beat one of the best teams in Napoli". People say "Shakhtar, it's Ukraine" or "Napoli, it's not Milan or Juventus" but that group is tricky.
