City responded from last weekendâ€™s loss to Manchester United by beating Newcastle United 3-1 on Saturday and left-back Clichy feels it is time to forget about last seasonâ€™s glory and worry about the job at hand.
â€śThe only thing we have been missing this year is probably a bit of spirit,â€ť he said.
â€śFrom last season, people expect more from us â€” our fans, ourselves. Last season was a great season, but like the manager says, we have to put it behind us and start to work.
â€śThis could be an example for everyone because the work-rate was unbelievable, from the players up front to the defenders. Thatâ€™s the spirit we have to have.
â€śWe know the quality is there. We do not have a problem with scoring.
â€śWe have seen it since the beginning of the season that we can score against any team, any time.
â€śBut we just need this extra fighting spirit and on Saturday, we had it.â€ť
