James Milner says there is no danger of Manchester City getting carried away with their success against Manchester United as they prepare for another tough test at the weekend.
Roberto Mancini's men returned to the top of the Premier League on goal difference on Monday thanks to a 1-0 derby victory at the Etihad Stadium, but there are still two games remaining for each side.
City face Newcastle United on Sunday and Mancini has claimed it will be a more difficult game than the clash with the Red Devils because Alan Pardew's side have enjoyed such a good season and are fighting to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Milner shares his manager's view and has urged his team-mates to focus on picking up another three points ahead of their visit to his former club.
"The game against United was massive and a big result for us - but we can't get carried away," Milner, who spent four years on Tyneside, said in The Sun.
No home worries
"We've got two games left and it will be just as difficult, maybe even harder, going away to St James' at the weekend.
"That's obviously the next thing on our minds. If we can get a good result there then it's in our hands."
City's exceptional home form this season means that Milner is not too concerned about facing Queens Park Rangers at the Etihad Stadium in their final game, but a trip to St James' Park is a potential banana skin.
Milner added: "The away trip will be the tougher one of the two we've got left.
"We've been in top form at home all year so that's not too much of a worry. But Sunday afternoon will be the tough one."
