Maicon: City can't lose any more ground

Published Add your comment

Manchester City defender Maicon has warned the Blues they cannot afford to fall any further behind their Barclays Premier League title rivals.

Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat to Aston Villa means City are now without a win in four matches. Two of those games were in the Premier League, where the Blues have now drawn more matches than they have won, and it means they head into Saturday's trip to Fulham four points behind leaders Chelsea and three adrift of Manchester United.

Maicon said: "The beginning of the season is difficult and a lot of clubs are conceding goals. But I know that Roberto (Mancini) is very focused on it. He wants to improve and we have to improve quickly because we can't afford to have any more distance between us and the teams at the top of the league."
