Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne insists the Premier League title race isn't over.

Premier League leaders City dropped points for the first time since October on Saturday as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The result ended the champions' run of 12 successive victories and allowed second-placed Liverpool, who have game in hand and a trip to the Etihad Stadium to come, to cut their advantage to nine points.

De Bruyne told City TV: “Obviously the schedule in December is a lot of games following each and we managed to win them all, so obviously we are in a good run.

“We have a little bit of a gap but we want to try and maintain that. Sometimes when you win a lot of games that is the moment where you slow down a little bit, but we're trying to to keep that level up and keep the intensity up as much as we can.

“We have been able to do that quite a few times over the years. We know it's not over because we've done it in the past – been behind that many points and turned it around. It (the lead) can go quickly but hopefully it doesn't, obviously."
