City are now only one win away from equalling the all-time record from Europe's top five leagues - currently held by Bayern Munich under Guardiola - but Sterling is paying little heed to his side's place in the history books.
"I don't think anyone is really thinking about records. They're nice to have on your CV but we have to keep winning and getting three points," he told the club's official website.
"Records only stand for a certain amount of time. Three points add to the table."
City are now 15 points clear of their closest challengers heading into Sunday's match against Crystal Palace.
