Jose Mourinho's side visit the Etihad Stadium on April 7 for a game which could see City make mathematically certain of being crowned champions following their 2-0 victory at Stoke on Tuesday.

The influential defender told Sky Sports: "Everybody in the blue side of Manchester knows it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity".

"We can not deny we are close to winning the league but we have to keep working and keep focused, as we did since the first day, (going) game by game, step by step", said City midfielder Fernandinho.

"I've met him before and he was complimentary to ourselves with the spirit that we have shown".

Wright says that United's players must "look over there enviously" at City.

Manchester United "would be doing exactly what Manchester City are doing" if they had Pep Guardiola as manager.

"You can not deny that we're close to winning the league but you have to keep working and keep focused and as we did since the first day, game by game step by step and working hard every day every week every game you're going to get there".

Not that that mattered, and with Man City having now collected 81 points from their 30 league games this season, they have now equalled Leicester City's total as champions three years ago. It's a lot of points. Our legacy behind us is not big in terms of a lot of titles. It is one more step to the title.

"As soon as possible will be better but it doesn't matter where we win it".

"I understand for the fans but the important thing is to be champions".

As well as sitting clear at the summit, the Premier League leaders are also in with a strong chance of winning Europe's premier prize - the Champions League for the first time after reaching the quarter-finals following a 5-2 aggregate victory over Basel in the last 16. We will be focusing on the Champions League.

Stoke face a tough run of games against Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur before crucial games against West Ham and Burnley which could go a long way to deciding their fate.

"It is always a complicated here, but we put in a solid performance and controlled the game and didn't concede a goal".
