Aleksandar Kolarov: Confident Manchester City can claim derby success

Aleksandar Kolarov: Confident Manchester City can claim derby success

It was at this stage last season that City embarked upon a late surge which carried them past United and to the top-flight crown.

Twelve months on and any hopes they had of defending that crown appear to have gone, with United having pulled 15 points clear at the summit with only eight games remaining.

A derby duel at Old Trafford on Monday will offer City an opportunity to close that gap, but they will be playing for little more than pride.

Kolarov insists that will provide enough motivation to the Blues squad, with it important for them to get one over on their fiercest rivals.

He told Sky Sports News HD: "I have to be honest, they have been better this season.

"We have played good, but some games we have made mistakes. Against small teams, we have made a lot of mistakes - away especially.

"They deserve it because they are in first place at the moment. But, for us, that doesn't change anything. We are going to try and win in the game at Old Trafford, to be proud.

"They are confident in this moment and it will be a different game but - if we play like we know, if we are all at 100 per cent - I think we are better than them."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
