Defender Pablo Zabaleta is confident title-chasing Manchester City have the quality to prevail in Monday's eagerly-anticipated derby against rivals Manchester United.

City head into the crunch contest at the Etihad Stadium knowing victory would take them back to the top of the Barclays Premier League on goal difference with two games remaining. That would represent a remarkable turnaround from a fortnight ago when, after a crushing loss at Arsenal, City appeared out of contention eight points behind.

Zabaleta told the club's website, "We have to play the same as we play every game. We need to be strong mentally, focus on what we have to do and give it our all. We've got the talent and we've got quality - we've got everything. But behind this the mentality and the attitude for that game has to be more than 100%."
