Gundogan is playing the most productive campaign of his career.
The German midfielder has scored nine goals for Man City this campaign and has been the club’s most reliable player this season.
Prior to this campaign, Gundogan scored 22 goals through four seasons at the Etihad.
This season is shaping up to be the most memorable one for the ex-Dortmund player.
He had an injury scare in City’s 3-0 win over Spurs but is expected to return to the first-team when the squad visits the Emirates on Sunday.

Gundogan told CityTV: “I don’t really know to be honest what made the difference, I just feel like I am playing in a more offensive role.
“Maybe my hunger to arrive in the right spaces increased compared to the other seasons, but also I just play this offensive role now.
“I just try to help my team as much as possible, but not just offensively also defensively I try to be there, I try to win duels, I try to block shots, just where I’m needed.”
