Johnson: Staying calm
Manchester City starlet Michael Johnson is refusing to get carried away by the club's start to the new season.
City sit top of the Premier League after three successive wins, including a 1-0 triumph in the Manchester derby against United on Sunday.
However, Johnson insists that City have achieved nothing yet.
"It's three games, that's all," he said.
"At the start of the season our aim was to be in the top 10 at the end of the season and that has not changed, we're still trying to do that.
"You can see from nine points out of nine - we've done as well as we can and on Sunday we were playing against one of the best teams in the world which is hard."
Johnson insists that he had little doubt City would make an impact this season.
"To me it's no surprise because we brought in a lot of good players," he said.
"The lads have all gelled really well. There are a lot of nationalities in the dressing room but it's not quiet. Everyone speaks to each other and gets along well."
