Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is already looking forward to his team's Premier League clash against Liverpool next month.
Pep Guardiola's side smashed Cardiff City 5-0 at the Etihad on Saturday, and are two points behind leaders Liverpool – who have registered six wins in six league games.
"At the moment it looks like those games against the top clubs will be important," the Germany international told UK newspapers.
"We play Liverpool in a couple of weeks so it will be a real test for us at Anfield as they are also getting their points.
"Liverpool is a very strong team and Chelsea are very strong. United just dropped points against Wolves, like we did, so I think Wolves will cause a lot of problems.
"But it's up to us in the end. We are trying to play like we did [against Cardiff] because when we are ready like this our chances of winning games and titles are the highest. So that's what we try to achieve every game."
The Citizens travel to Anfield on October 7 but will play three games (Oxford United in the EFL Cup, Brighton and Hove Albion in the league and Hoffenheim in the Champions League) before being hosted by Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.
