Zabaleta: Man City cannot slip up against Burnley

Manchester City fullback Pablo Zabaleta says victory over Burnley is a must ahead of the international break.

The Blues currently lie fourth in the table with a game in hand on their rivals, and the Argentine defender says it's vital for morale to maintain that status until hostilities resume.

Zabaleta told City's website: "The next game is now very important. It is a good opportunity because we are playing at home and we need three Premier League points to stay up there.

"It is a long time until the next game against Liverpool, and we want to be fourth during that time. It's important to us that we are in a Champions League position going into the break."
