Joleon Lescott insists that Manchester City's players are not celebrating winning the league yet.
City go into the final day of the season knowing victory over Queens Park Rangers would guarantee them the title - the club's first in over 40 years.
The 29-year-old insists that despite their excellent win at Newcastle United on Sunday, they know they still have work to do.
"We know how close we are as a unit, but it's still not over yet," he told the Daily Star.
"Some of the boys have won big things elsewhere and won't get carried away.
"When we beat Man United, the talk straight after was all about beating Newcastle - and now it's all about QPR."
Lescott was full of praise for Yaya Toure, whose double at Newcastle has put City on the brink of success.
Lescott said: "Big players do big things and he's done it again.
"He scored in the FA Cup semi-final last year, the FA Cup final itself and in training he said he'd score at Newcastle.
"He believes in himself and believes it is his time to shine.
"But when you've got a CV like his, which includes winning the Champions League with Barcelona, nothing is going to faze him.
"When you have team-mates like that, who are so confident, it makes you believe yourself.
"When I first arrived, I hoped rather than expected us to win the league, but we have developed and got a lot more players in and we all started to believe.
"It has been developing over a period of time, a growing feeling.
"If we can close this out, it would be unreal. You dream of these things.
"It will be crazy if we win it."
