Kevin De Bruyne claims Pep Guardiola has instilled a belief among the Manchester City players, that they've reached a level where they can beat anyone.
The Belgian maestro rifled a left-footed shot into the top corner, from outside the box on Saturday, securing his fourth goal of the season, as City comfortably beat Leicester 2-0 at the King Power Stadium - the Citizens 10th consecutive league win.
Despite an assertive performance from their local rivals Manchester United, currently occupying second, Guardiola's side remain eight points clear at the top of the table with 12 games played.
Speaking to Sky Sports, De Bruyne was full of praise for the manager, revealing: "[Guardiola has given us] the confidence that we can beat everybody.
"Last year, there were games where we could have been better but we weren't clinical enough.
"This year, even today, we could be more clinical. But we were there in the box, we are scoring more goals and I think that's the main difference from last year."
The 26-year-old was quick to reiterate that City are a team: "It's not about me. It's about how the team plays and the way that the team is playing makes it easier for me."
"Obviously I think it is a type of football that is good for me as a player individually. But I think also the way that the team is playing, it just makes it easier for everybody."
The Citizens next Premier League outing comes on Sunday against Huddersfield, at the Kirklees Stadium, as Guardiola's side look to win their 11th consecutive league match.
