Rene Meulensteen: Fulham boss focused solely on Manchester City

City arrive in West London full of confidence after demolishing Arsenal 6-3 last weekend, and having beaten European champions Bayern Munich 3-2 in their previous match.

Fulham's salvation hopes will more likely rest on the sort of games which follow against Norwich, Hull, West Ham and Sunderland, but Meulensteen wants his squad to be single-minded.

"The key is that we focus on what is right in front of us," said Meulensteen, who is used to battles against City from his days at Old Trafford working on Sir Alex Ferguson's staff.

"If you start looking ahead, you lose focus and by tomorrow, quarter to five, you then think we could have done better, we could have got something out of this game, because you lost the focus.

"We know we have a massive task in front of us. It doesn't matter who you are playing in this situation.

"It can be a trigger for a great motivation because teams in the bottom three have picked up points against teams nobody expected.

"I love it, I really do. We are shaping something. We need the break that we deserve because the energy has been good."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
