The French left-back has warned his teammates that the Premier League trophy hunt is not finished and they need to keep their focus against QPR, to make sure they are champions.
City host QPR knowing that a win will crown them Premier League winners, but knows Manchester United will be ready to pounce if they slip up. The 26-year-old does not believe the title run-in is a foregone conclusion, and is aware this season has been full of twists and turns.
"We have won nothing yet. All we have done is put ourselves in a fabulous position to become champions," Clichy told The Sun.
"We go into the last game of the season with the title in our own hands and that’s fantastic. I know everyone is expecting us to win it now, probably even the Manchester United lads.
"But we have to ignore all of that and remember it is not won yet. There is still a job to be done, we have to beat QPR. People are talking like that is a formality.
"How stupid! Have they not been paying attention this season?
"There have been more shocks and upsets than ever before and, in this game, if you look too far ahead you can easily crash and burn.
"So we must be totally focused and professional to ensure there is not another one.
"I remember how Rangers gave us a hell of a game at Loftus Road in November so no one here is expecting anything other than another very tough game.
"They will be no pushovers — they have beaten Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool this season. We don’t want Manchester City suddenly added to that list.
"And remember this match is as important to them as it is to us. Staying in the Premier League is as huge for QPR as winning the title is for us.
"So they will be just as motivated as us. Which is why we cannot take anything for granted.
"If we just think we can go through the motions and treat the game as one big celebration then we run the risk of being humbled.
"So my message is simple: Let’s get the job done first and then we can celebrate.
"The noise and excitement after we beat United was incredible so I can’t imagine what it will be like if we do win the title.
"If we can do that it will be amazing. But I stress nothing is done yet. We have won nothing yet."
