The Sky Blues marched on to their 14th straight win in all competitions on Sunday, equaling the all-time run by an English top-flight side.


Ilkay Gundogan has played down title talk for Manchester City saying there is still a long way to go in the campaign.

Manchester City strengthened their grip at the top of the Premier League table on Sunday by snatching a 4-1 win against defending champions Liverpool at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola’s men now find themselves at a very advantageous position – five points clear at the top with a game in hand over most teams.


Jurgen Klopp earlier stated that top-four finish is the target for Liverpool this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently insisted that Manchester United cannot be considered title contenders.

Man City now appear to be clear favorites to clinch the league crown, but Gundogan believes this could be the most competitive season for his side.

“There are still so many games to play,” Gundogan said, via Goal. “I think we should stay humble, try to take every challenge by itself because the Premier League is so competitive – and maybe the most competitive year that we have had, so it is about every single game and opponent.


“We know we are in a very good moment, but we shouldn’t take it for granted and not drop any edge and to keep going to do the stuff we have been doing as good as possible. Then, it can be a great and successful season for us.”
