Dzeko insists City are capable of bridging that gap quickly and is ready to pile the pressure on United.
He added: “The seven-point gap looks a lot, of course, but we look from game to game and we will fight to the end.
“The title race is open. We have so many games still to play and nothing is finished.
“There’s a chance that we can win back-to-back titles and that is our main target, but it is still too early to talk about that.”
