Zabaleta: We have quality to beat United
Pablo Zabaleta is confident Manchester City have the quality to prevail in next week's eagerly-anticipated derby against rivals United.
City head into the crunch contest at the Etihad Stadium on Monday 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%.
"I'm sure if we put everything into this game, with the quality we've got it can make the difference."
