Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola refused to say the Premier League title race is over following yet another victory for his seemingly unstoppable side.

The Citizens made it an incredible 21 wins in a row in all competitions as they saw off Wolves 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium, with the victors also matching a club record of 28 games unbeaten.

There are 33 points to play for. To win the Premier League we need those points.

City have won all of their last 15 league games and hold a 15-point lead at the top of the table, having played one more game than second-placed Manchester United - who face Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening.

Guardiola spoke to both BBC Sport and BT Sport, saying: "The champions are Liverpool, the crown belongs to them. We are in the best position right now to take them out and we are going to try, but they are the champions.

"There are 33 points to play for. To win the Premier League we need those points.

"The record we will talk about in the future. In winter time in England it's hell and in that time we did something incredible. It's more than remarkable.

Meanwhile, Guardiola was already looking forward to a Manchester derby clash with the Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

He added: "We got better results at Old Trafford than here (in the past). We have one or two days to rest and I realise how strong they are.

"It's an incredible opportunity to make a huge step and we are going to try."

City are 1.44 to defeat the Red Devils and 7.50 to win the game 2-0, with the Citizens 2.00 to keep a clean sheet.

The league meeting between the two sides earlier this season at Old Trafford ended in a goalless draw.
