Joleon Lescott feels Manchester City were provided with conclusive proof of their arrival at the Premier League's top-table by all the talk of a crisis within the Blues camp.

After blazing a trail with their swashbuckling style for the first third of the season, Lescott found it rather amusing that Monday's trip to Wigan was being billed as the acid test of City's title credentials.

Three defeats in five games meant City, according to some, were a club in freefall, which all came as a shock to Lescott and his team-mates, who said: "It has been funny. None of the boys thought we were cracking or something was going wrong. Then suddenly a big thing is made of it in the media."
