Manchester City's hard-fought 1-0 win over Sunderland on Tuesday kept the Blues within three points of table-topping Leicester City whom the Blues face on Saturday.Here is some player reaction.
"We need to make ourselves hard to beat and that's what we did tonight," Clichy said.
"Three points are three points - what we're trying to do is take every game as it comes and see how it goes. When you come to somewhere like Sunderland and keep a clean sheet and win it's really satisfying.
"We have Leicester on Saturday, so let's make it count and get those three points again."
"We're here to win titles, Manuel is here to win titles and that's what we're to try to do," Hart declared.
"We back him all the way and we love him as our manager.
"We appreciate we have a job to do this season, next season is next season - I thought Sunderland were fantastic tonight. If they carry on like that they'll have no problems at all."
