Our 'big' players will keep us grounded - Man City's Lescott

Joleon Lescott is confident that Manchester's City 'big' players will be able to keep things under control this weekend.

City are chasing their first top flight title since 1968 and require a win over QPR on Sunday in the final game of the season to clinch it.

Lescott admits that there are a few players within the City squad, including himself, who are not as experienced in matches of such magnitude but he is happy to be playing alongside some world-class stars who have won important titles in the past.

"We have a fantastic squad with the likes of David Silva, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure, who have all won major honours, so it's easy for them to focus for the big games and it comes naturally to them," he told the club's official website.

"For players like myself and Joe Hart for instance, we've not really won anything major apart from the FA Cup, but we'll be equally focused on the task ahead.

"We just need to do what we've been doing in the last few weeks, give it our all and I'm sure we'll be fine."
