Cech has rubbished talk it's a two horse race between Manchester rivals United and City for the title.
Cech said: "People are saying it's a two-horse race but that's not the opinion here. Maybe they have a two-horse race for the title of best team in Manchester! But in the league we are still in there and we are confident we have a very good squad and the experience to make their lives difficult.
"There are 34 games to play. We go to United in a positive mood. We are in a good position. If we win at Old Trafford we will have closed the gap and we can stay top after that."
