Manchester City picked up the first silverware of the season yesterday as they saw off Chelsea in a penalty shoot-out to win the Carabao Cup.
An otherwise tepid game was sparked into life owed by a bust-up between boss Maurizio Sarri and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, but City went on to lift the trophy.
There has been talk all season of City winning the quadruple though one of their most influential players Kevin De Bruyne says such talk is premature.
He told Sky Sports News that winning the quadruple would be "almost impossible" adding "we are going to try and win as many games as possible. "If you do that you must be considered the best team ever because nobody has done it. However, we are not looking at that. We want to win as much as possible but not to think about the quadruple. If we win three and then play the Champions League final then maybe we can talk about it. Before that, no way!"
City remain hot on the heels of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League title race and were relieved to see that Liverpool failed to take maximum points against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The sky blues return to league action on Wednesday when West Ham United are the visitors to the Etihad Stadium.
"We are going to have a tough week," said the Belgian international. "We just played a hard game (against Chelsea) and Wednesday is another one and Saturday also. The schedule is pretty hard for us but we need to keep going and hopefully we will end the week in a good way."
