Manchester City beat Chelsea 1-0 to continue its impressive start to the Premier League season.
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has described his team as having a 'winning mentality', following their 1-0 sinking of Chelsea in Sunday's Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian ace scored the winning goal in a game which saw his side comprehensively outclass the hosts, with the scoreline arguably flattering Antonio Conte's men.
Speaking ahead of Belgium's World Cup 2018 qualification matches against Bosnia & Herzegovina and Cyprus, via Sky Sports News, the 26-year-old reflected on his club's rampant start to the Premier League campaign, and looked ahead to plans to keep the momentum going after the international break.
De Bruyne said: "We are playing very well at the moment and it would have been better to just keep going and be in the same rhythm.
"When we come back [to the Premier League] we just have to try to get that winning mentality again."
The former Wolfsburg star also addressed the celebrations that followed the crucial win at his former club, a moment in which his teammates surrounded him in the dressing room, leaping wildly while chanting his name.
"I was in there. It was a bit noisy but it was nice. Everybody was jumping around. Everybody knew the significance of the game and because I scored the goal everybody was excited."
Manchester City have been relentless in their approach to the opening matches of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign - winning six out of seven matches including crucial wins over Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as dazzling thrashings of the likes of Watford and Crystal Palace.
