David Platt says there won't be any winding down from Manchester City in the remaining weeks of the season.
City travel to Swansea and host West Brom before taking on Wigan in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
Platt, the first-team coach at the Etihad Stadium, said: "I have been saying for weeks that this football club is obligated to win football matches.
"If we can secure second place within the next two or three games that won't put any kind of slant on our last two games, at Reading and at home against Norwich.
"We want to win football matches, that is what the players want to do.
"They don't like getting beaten, which they did at Tottenham last week, even though we controlled the game for large periods.
"We have no doubts. We don't need the stimulus and motivation of going for trophies to go out there and perform."
