London - Manchester City winger Jesus Navas has warned the Premier League pace-setters not to get complacent after their blistering start to the season.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have surged to the top of the table with three wins from their opening three matches and the swaggering manner of their performances suggests City are back to their best after tamely surrendering the title to Chelsea last season.

With Raheem Sterling bedding in nicely after his move from Liverpool and a big-money deal for Wolfsburg's Belgium playmaker Kevin de Bruyne reportedly close to completion, City are assembling an awesome array of attacking talent that could leave rest of the top tier trailing in their wake.

The leaders are firm favourites to maintain their flying start when they host promoted Watford on Saturday, but Spain international Navas is well aware of the dangers of underestimating a team who have drawn all three of their league matches so far.

"It is not only that we have won these three games, it is that we didn't concede any goals and we created a lot of chances. We are really happy," Navas said.

"But we need to keep the same attitude, working really well defensively and also creating a lot of chances. That is the way to win more games this season."
