Ahead of this afternoon’s game against Liverpool, Joleon Lescott is anticipating a tough match. After United won yesterday, it is imperative that City pick up a win to restore the gap at the top of the table to seven points, something which is not lost on the centre half. He said:
Liverpool are chasing a European place so it will be another tough occasion. But we are not playing badly; it’s just that we didn’t score in midweek at QPR.
In recent games we have been creating more and scoring. We need to start winning games again and putting pressure on United, especially when we play before them. Now they’ve played before us, taken three points and the gap is wider. It’s about concentrating on our own game and being there to take advantage if and when they do slip up.
