Dunne: Man City performance at Everton ideal

Manchester City produced the ideal performance in victory at Everton, says skipper Richard Dunne.

Dunne, who put one over his old club, told City's website: "That was a real team performance - when we have possession, nobody can deal with our skill on the ball, and once we put the work in to go with it, we're a really good side.

"We need more performances like this to show the manager we are worthy of playing in his team. He has his plans and he will sign players in the summer, there's nothing you can do about that. Players are putting in a performance to try and get us a highest Premier finish and hopefully with it Europe.

"We were disappointed to be knocked out by Hamburg but at the same time determined to get another chance. We realised that if we didn't win at Everton then it probably wasn't going to happen for us.

"Nobody has set a points target. We got three at Goodison but all the games coming up are hard. Blackburn next week are in a relegation battle and then Tottenham are like ourselves, going for that seventh place.

"But we were determined not to just let this season peter out in a few pointless matches. We really want that European place, and Everton was a great boost given that our away record has been really poor."
