Man City difficult to stop in Premier League title race, says Thierry Henry

Thierry Henry believes it will take "something special" to stop Manchester City winning the Premier League this season.
City have looked impressive under Pep Guardiola, winning all eight of their competitive matches.
They followed up their derby victory over Manchester United with a comprehensive 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
And, speaking on Super Sunday, Henry said: "They will keep getting better, it will take something special to stop them being champions.
"They destroyed Bournemouth and if it wasn't for the mistake of Claudio Bravo against Manchester United they might have had a better second half and the score would have been heavier.
"They don't have that many new signings in their starting line-up, but there is a different attitude in what is being asked and what the manager wants from them. You can see that every time they have the ball and when they defend as well."
Henry has also been impressed that City beat Bournemouth without the suspended Sergio Aguero.
"Last year when Aguero wasn't there to score, nobody was," he said. "Everybody can score, they will be difficult to stop."
While City have caught the eye with their performances, they also started last season with five straight league wins, only to finish 15 points behind champions Leicester.
However, former City forward Niall Quinn says the team are buying into Guardiola's methods.
"They are a joy to watch," he said. "Kevin De Bruyne is setting the place alight. They are doing everything with such pace, the Pep stamp is coming up, they are awesome at the moment.
"You can see they buy into what Pep wants, the passing and energy. There is something tangible that they really want this, to bounce back, you get the feeling they want to make up for lost time."
