City edged a 1-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday.
He told City' website: â€œWhatever criticism we are getting now, we are unbeaten in the league and in the top three. It just means we set the standard very high last season, I guess.
â€œI have been at City four and a half years now and canâ€™t say I have had many moments where we have had the whole country singing our praises.
â€œWe are not expecting it and I guess the most important thing is doing what we have to do in the league, and are trying to get better. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnâ€™t, and like any team you just have to keep going.
â€œThe more you climb up the ladder, the more you have to deal with these situations."
