Toure plays down unbeaten start

Kolo Toure

Kolo Toure claims it is too early to even think about comparing Manchester City to Arsenal's famous 'Invincibles' team.

The City defender was a member of the Gunners side which won the Barclays Premier League title undefeated in the 2003-04 season.

Roberto Mancini's side lead the Premier League after 11 wins and two draws in 13 games, but Toure is not drawing parallels with his Arsenal experiences, and said: "We (have) started very well but now we just need to forget about it, just try to win game by game and as long as you play and win, game by game, it's fantastic."

He added: "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 game by game and trying to win."
