The English defender says that he enjoys working with Dias and praises City's defensive work.

Pep Guardiola

has always been praised because of his attacking approach but this season there is something else to praise.

Manchester City

have the best defensive record so far this season and

Ruben Dias

, their new central defender has played his part. Dias, 23, joined the Citizens in the summer transfer window and has played 20 times for City so far.

John Stone

, Manchester City’s English defender says that he enjoys playing alongside the Portuguese defender. Stones told the club's official website:

"Yeah, I absolutely love playing with him.

"We’ve still got room to improve. Everyone has got different qualities which is great. The consistency is key and us keeping clean sheets has been massive.

"I’ve said it numerous times now but to keep those clean sheets and have that platform for the lads to go and win the game is massive and it’s our job at the end of the day.

"I was thinking the other day that its not all on us – its not all in the defenders to get the clean sheets or that when someone scores its solely on the guys who scores."
