Bellamy has point to prove

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy is being tipped to give his former club Liverpool a hard time on Sunday.

Bellamy is feeling his way at City, after arriving in the January transfer window from West Ham. The Welshman has rarely settled at one club and he includes a brief stay at Anfield on his list.

His City team-mate Stephen Ireland said: "He's going to go into this game determined to score. He's a proper winner, who plays with his heart on his sleeve. He will be a very important signing for us. Craig is going to want to prove a point against Liverpool and, we hope, get a goal."

He added: "As soon as you get the ball you look for him, because his movement is brilliant.

"He's very quick, so you always know he can get on the end of balls - even if it's not a great pass."

Ireland is in top form at present - his goal in the 2-2 draw against Copenhagen in the UEFA Cup this week was his 10th of the season.

He is only two adrift of Robinho and said: "I'd love to keep scoring. I've set myself a few targets and I just want to keep reaching them.

"If I get in position and it happens for me, great. As long as I keep making those runs and get that service, that's the most important thing."
