Their 3-3 draw to Burnley on Saturday was the fifth in succession for City.
"We are 11 games into the season and we have done okay - no more, no less," Hughes believes.
"As I warned everybody before the start of the season, at times we will look what we are - a team coming together and trying to gel. On other occasions, it will happen for us - and we will look an outstanding side.
"There are elements of our play that we need to tighten up on. When we do that, the threat we have in an attacking sense will stand us in good stead."
