Manchester City are flying high in the English Premier League at the moment and after doing a double over their city rivals Manchester United, the Blues are confident once again of getting into a European spot at the end of the season. City are favourites to qualify for the UEFA Cup and if their striker Darius Vassell is to be believed, then Sven-Goran Eriksson’s man can even play in the UEFA Champions League.
The former England international striker says:
It was exactly what we needed. We thought that we would let ourselves and the fans down a little bit after a few of our recent results. From the players’ points of view we wanted to give the fans something and you can’t do much more than beat Man United at Old Trafford for City fans. It was a big ask because it hadn’t happened in 30-odd years but we knew that would make them proud of us. To come away with the two results this season, still pushing for a European place, it’s a great position for us to be in and hopefully we can do it.
Can City qualify for the Champions League? Better put your money on them getting into a UEFA Cup spot. That is more feasible at the moment.
