Fernandinho warns Man City fans Cup not yet won

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho says they won't be taking Sunderland lightly in the Capital One Cup final.

With the 28-year old now back to full fitness and expected to start at Wembley after his brief lay-off, more optimistic City supporters will believe that Capital One Cup glory is 90 minutes away.

But he warned: "In England, each game is difficult.

"The performance of the team always has to be very good to win - this is the main difference between football in England and where I've played previously."

Fernandinho also told City's website: "I have no doubt that Sunday will be like this against Sunderland and we must be at our best to make sure we get to lift the trophy.

"We have a chance to win the Capital One Cup and we will try to do it - we always want to win every competition we are in and this is a very important tournament.

"It would be a good start for me here in England in my first season, to win the first competition available."
