Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan says the Premier League title race is not over, despite his side being miles ahead of the competition in the table.
City lead rivals United by 11 points after just 16 games, as Pep Guardiola’s side took their winning run to a record 14 top-flight matches within a single season with their 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday.
However, despite the huge margin that separates City and their rivals, Gundogan is rightly not yet ready to celebrate.
“It doesn’t feel like that, to be honest,” Gundogan said. “It feels like we gained three very important points – not more, not less.
“Of course we are very happy about the way we played. We knew that it is going to be difficult because they have very quick players up front, strong players, so we expected a lot of long balls.
“But the way we defend, especially our back four defend these kind of balls, was amazing today. We were brave enough to play or to play our game.
“In my opinion, I think I can speak for the whole team, it is a fully-deserved win.
“We just felt like that we are the deserved winners of this game and that’s why we were so happy after the final whistle.”
