Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was upbeat despite his side's 3-1 defeat at the hands of Leicester City.
An early Robert Huth goal paved the way to another impressive win by Claudio Ranieri's men.
But the Chilean says there is a long way to go and the Citizens can recover the six point deficit at the top of the table.
No complaints. Leicester played better than us," Pellegrini told BBC Sport.
"Conceding a goal from a set piece after two minutes was very important for the game.
"We had chances but it was a difficult game. I expect more from time from the beginning because it was very important, we are at home and playing top of the table, but we couldn't do it.
"We have a lot of things coming like the Champions League so we must take this experience.
"There are 36 points to play for, nothing is finished.
"It is important for us to recover our players and I am continuing not giving up because we got an unexpected defeat but we must continue."
