Drogba: Too early to judge City

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has warned Manchester City they are not guaranteed of success and should not get carried away by their start. City have had grand ambitions ever since being taken over by Sheikh Mansour a couple of years ago and results have steadily improved. However, they missed out on a place in the top four of the Premier League last season and have been warned by Drogba that their latest spending spree guarantees nothing. "Money cannot guarantee success in football," the Ivorian told The Sun. "City paid a lot for players last season but did not make the Champions League. "They have a better squad now and will be dangerous - but it is still too early to judge their chances." Chelsea have started the new season in stunning form, demolishing West Brom 6-0 at home before beating Wigan by the same scoreline at the DW Stadium. Drogba believes the Blues have developed a 'perfect system' that frightens opponents, but insists the key is hard work on the training ground. "We create such a sensation of fear in our opponents' penalty area - and that really helps us score," he explained. "We have developed a perfect system. We practise so many different situations thousands of times in training so it becomes automatic in games. "It may look easy - but the secret is work, work and more work each day. "And, while Ancelotti is an Italian coach, we do not play a defensive Italian style. "That is how we were successful last season so there is no reason to change."
