We must stop falling behind - De Jong

Published Add your comment

Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong accepts the champions must kick their "bad habit" of falling behind to mount a successful title defence.

City's 2-2 draw at Liverpool in their second Barclays Premier League game of the season was the fourth match in succession they had needed to wipe out a deficit. The run stretches back to their dramatic title-clinching win over QPR last season and includes the Community Shield win over Chelsea and opening league victory against Southampton.

"I don't know what it is. It is a bad habit," De Jong told City TV.
