Brazilian Fernandinho has said that the club, who are 100% focused on each game, do not listen to the "buzz" surrounding the team.
"We know the definitions are coming on the next three or four months," 32-year-old told the Manchester Evening News. "But we keep thinking game by game and that's important. We're not trying to reach further than is possible.
"That's a virtue we've got. We have incredible preparation for each game. The focus is 100%. Probably that's our uniqueness: we don't listen to the buzz around us. We can't deny that our confidence is really high, seeing that we're getting good results, the way we've been playing and scoring.
"The team is getting more and more confident and that's the way to get our goals - go through in Champions League, keep our position in the Premier League and try to get the title as soon as possible, plus our chances in the English cups."
