Pablo Zabaleta knows second half of the season is when Manchester City have to step up their game. City moved into second place in the Barclays Premier League after a home win over rivals Liverpool, just a point behind Arsenal.
"It was a massive win. We played against a very strong side in Liverpool and it was really important to get three points and keep the team winning their home games. I think we did a good job," Zabaleta said.
"We have to push even more now. We know December and January is one of the key points for the big teams to make a difference because we play many games and you need to try to keep winning.
"At the moment we are doing well, are one point behind the leaders and that is why Crystal Palace is also a key game.
"We are very comfortable and we feel good and have huge confidence.
"Sometimes there is talk we need to improve our performances away from home but we had a good win at Fulham and now our next game is at home to Crystal Palace so we need to have a good rest and be fit for that game."
