Vincent Kompany said the 3-0 win over West Brom was just what the doctor ordered.
The skipper believes the only thing needed against West Brom was three points after recent defeats to Burnley and Barcelona had threatened to completely derail the champions' campaign.
Now Kompany says City just need to take things one game at a time with the focus now on the trip to Crystal Palace.
"We needed this win to help restore everyone's confidence," said the captain. "There are another 24 points to play for and we have to do our best to get as many wins as we can.
"Can we win them all? Of course we can but we know that even if we do, it might not be enough because there are no guarantees, but we will be doing our best.
"We needed to put some things right today and I think we did that. We are team who only wants to win games so this victory was very important.
"Football is very simple - if you win, you're the best, if you lose, you're no good. All I can say us we'll be doing our best to win our remaining games and see where that takes us."
