Ilkay Gundogan has warned City against complacency, ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League last 16 second leg clash against Schalke.

"My main target at the moment is to go for all competitions and be successful".

It's as you were in the title race as both Manchester City and Liverpool eventually ran out comfortable winners over the weekend, meaning the Citizens maintain their one-point lead at the top of the table.

Schalke shouldn't be completely without hope against Manchester City in the Champions League this week.

City are in a strong position after staging a late comeback to win a dramatic match 3-2 in Germany.

The brace ensured the England striker became the first player to achieve a three-figure tally of goals for the Foxes since Gary Lineker.
