Pep Guardiola hailed an outstanding performance but called for calm after Manchester City extended their run of consecutive victories to 21 with a 4-1 defeat of Wolves.
City struck three times in the final 10 minutes, with Gabriel Jesus grabbing two, as City held off an unexpected Wolves fightback to claim a deserved win at the Etihad Stadium.
The result lifted quadruple-chasing City 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League but manager Guardiola insists nothing is finished yet.
Liverpool are the champions, they have the crown,” said Guardiola. “If we want to take them out we have to win the Premier League and there are still many points to win.
“We are in a really good position – I did not expect to be in this position two or three months ago – but we need to be calm and compete like we did today.
“I had a feeling we were going to be good. I saw this morning the team, how focused they were when we warmed up. I thought they were ready.
“Wolves had one shot on target and got one goal – and after that they had a good five minutes. If you let them run they kill you, they are so good with their pace.
“But in 90 minutes we conceded so few actions to them and we created enough against them. It was an incredibly well deserved victory and a big compliment to the guys, they were outstanding.”
