Kenwyne Jones: Has warned Manchester City to expect full-on commitment

The Potters are unbeaten in 10 in the Premier League but they almost had their run ended by Southampton on Saturday.

City trailed 3-1 and needed a last-minute goal of the season contender from Cameron Jerome to earn the point.

Jones said: "We are doing well. We had a few slip-ups but credit to the team, the manager and the fans for the run we have been on.

"The next game is the most important game for us because we're going to the home of the champions.

"Here at Stoke City we play for 90 minutes. If we get beat, we get beat, but we'll never give up. That comes from pride.

"This is our job. No-one wants to lose so you're not just going to stand there and accept defeat."

Jerome admits they let their standards slip against Southampton.

"We set our benchmark high against Liverpool on Wednesday (a 3-1 win). That was a tremendous performance but this was a little bit sloppy. The games come thick and fast over the Christmas period and we have to be a little bit sharper.

"We probably didn't show Southampton as much respect as we should have. This is the Premier League and there are some really good teams in it."

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
