Barry: Man City must learn to break down teams

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry says their draw with Fulham is a warning that they must work harder to break down teams at home.

Fulham's 2-2 Premier League draw frustrated Mark Hughes' men as well as the crowd, with Roy Hodgson's team getting behind the ball and relying on counter-attack to snatch a point.

England midfielder Barry told City's website: "Now we're being talked about as a big club who can achieve things, the lesser teams are going to raise their game - it's going to be their cup final coming here and playing us.

"It's something that the top teams have had to put up with over the years, and there's no reason why we should get used to it. Birmingham's confidence will be high after a brilliant win over Sunderland, so that's another tough one next."
