Man City defender Lescott enjoyed his Carroll battle

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott loved his battle against West Ham United striker Andy Carroll during yesterday's win.

Lescott admitted he enjoyed his battle with his Three Lions team-mate.

He said: "I've trained with Andy a lot but it's different in a game, there is a lot more effort and enthusiasm.

"We had to be aware when they got the ball out wide as Andy, as everyone knows, loves to attack a cross. We dealt with it well a majority of times."
