Aymeric Laporte says Manchester City have a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to win the Premier League by beating Manchester United. 

City overpowered Everton on Saturday to reassert our 16-point lead at the top of the table and a win in our next game against United would see us seal the title with six games to go. 

Laporte says games don't come much bigger. 

He told CityTV: "We have a chance [to win the league by beating United]. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we must try to get the win on Saturday.

"Obviously, we must win the next game and after that we can relax but, obviously, that is a very important game on Saturday. 

"We fight every game like it is the last one. It was very important to win today."

Laporte played at left-back at Goodison Park and delivered a superb display that showcased his passing ability. 

He says work done on the training ground was key to his performance. 

"I felt really well," he said. "Obviously, it's a different position but we worked hard over the week in training sessions. I felt fine - physically, very well and the team achieved the goal today."
