City's fans gave plenty of backing to the former England coach, with banners and songs which drowned out The Kop in this Barclays Premier League clash.
And afterwards Eriksson said: "The support for me was fantastic, of course it is.
"It makes me stand up from the bench a lot but I can do that, no problem.
"It was fantastic, of course I am thankful. They have been fantastic all season, incredible.
"Maybe it will not affect things, I don't know. But we have one week to go until the season is finished.
"But I would appreciate it if people would accept that we will start talking after that.
"We will not be talking on Monday, more so next month."
Eriksson's reaction to remarks from his agent Athole Still that he would not be in charge at City next season, was: "He said that? They should work and not talk. I heard he had said something, but he has not spoken to me at all."
