According to him, the supporters of their rivals have been approaching him to say they want City to win the title, not Liverpool.
“United fans are in a difficult situation obviously,” the City right-back said.
“When I’m out and about or walking my dogs, United fans are coming up to me saying, ‘We’d rather City win the league than Liverpool’.
“It’s strange to hear but I can assure you the United players aren’t going to leave a red carpet and say, ‘Go on City, score past us’.
“They’re going to make it difficult because it’s a game of football and they’re fighting for the top-four as well so they need the points.”
Man City are in a tight race with Liverpool heading into the season’s final weeks with the Reds maintaining a two-point lead with one extra match played.
Liverpool are chasing their first EPL title for 29 years, while City have the opportunity to become the first club to retain the title in 10 years.
