Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott says they must be wary of former teammate Shaun Wright-Phillips when they face QPR.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott says they must be wary of former teammate Shaun Wright-Phillips when they face QPR.

QPR have steadily improved over the last month and their defence has tightened up considerably, but Lescott believes the main threat could come from a player the Blues’ fans still idolise.

“Shaun Wright-Phillips is one of those players who if you are not on top of your game he will punish you because he’s quick and agile so he’ll be someone we’ll need to watch closely,” said Lescott to City's website.

“I still think that he’s one of the most exciting players in the Premier League and capable of hurting any team. Loic Remy is another quality player – he must be to have played for Marseille in the Champions League."
