Good luck in the champions league

You make us proud keep on doing the best

Like i love you. But put more energy... I recognise the good work you are putting in ... Kudos lad

Brilliant performance tonight Ilkay 💙 xxxx

great player really deserved u take the centeral medfield role when dinhio is gone out ilkay u are amazing player thank u every think for us

Well done guys on to the next game 😍

Ilkay played very well and as always, Bernado was awesome. Fernandinho did save some crucial chances that would have gotten us behind and Sterling was at his usual best. Oh Sane, came is and gave us a better drive and not to forget how Aguero kept the United defence so busy that it allowed our wingers so much space to operate. Can't wait for City to be announced as official champions of the EPL 💙💪

Ilkay you are top of the league. Please stay and be Fernandinhos replacement

Great team performance again yesterday. The defence was my initial concern, but they came through with with flying colors. No on to Burnley and the title, it's sooo close.

Army of Manchester 🔵💙💯

As an Utd Supporter I am sad to say that City are light years ahead of Utd .

3 Games to go! Keep it up Ilkay!

Man city's rich Arabs can't buy the champions league 😎

I will rather be a local champion than be no champion at all. To win in Europe you need some luck too.... Psg and Juventus has won 8 straight but go see how much they cherish it. Winning the league you think it's an easy job. A course of 9 months with many travels, injury, setbacks. It hasn't been easy. I wish you all the best till the very end gundo

Great game city ..BT I'm Liverpool fan from south Africa

Top performance by the lads 💙

My Current Favourite Player #Gundogan alongside Frenkie De Jong and Fernadinho

Best midfielder in the league 💗

Congratulations champions of England

Great game Gundo... you controlled it completely when you dropped deep..

Congratulations Manchester city fire team every where's

That’s a sign that you’re coming to inter 💙🎱
