Midfielder Nigel de Jong claims Manchester City must win a trophy to consider the season a success - and there can be no excuses for failure.

City have led the Barclays Premier League for much of the season but were knocked off the top by Manchester United after defeat at Swansea on Sunday and they must overturn a 1-0 deficit as they meet Sporting Lisbon in the second leg of their Europa League last-16 tie at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday night.

De Jong said: "We always said at the beginning of the season we wanted to compete to win as many competitions as we can. We have come so far and we have just got to fight and concentrate until the end."
