O'Brien admits West Ham bracing for decisive month
"The manager is looking for between eight and 10 points from the group of eight games," said defender O'Brien. "It's a tough period coming up but we got a point against City and we're pleased with that.
"It wasn't just the boss who wasn't happy with the way we performed at Wigan - it was the players as well but we put it right against City. I think everyone knows already who will be competing for the title and City will be one of those clubs."
