Fernandinho has come out saying that Manchester City are fighting like animals to win the title this season.
“We showed the desire in competing for every ball like animals,” said midfielder Fernandinho. “I think this is the spirit of a team that wants to be champions. It was not just Wednesday – in general every game, especially last Saturday, after the ‘defeat’ against Tottenham, in the way we played from the first minute.”
“If you look back to January, they [Liverpool] could have been 10 points clear after our game. We didn’t want that. We reduced the gap to four points and now we are one point up. That is the way the Premier League is going to be decided and I hope we can do our job and win those three games, and be champions again.”
The Brazilian said: “Burnley are always difficult. They have a specific way to play and it is not easy to go there. They drew with Chelsea last Monday. We have to recover as soon as possible and try to be fit and be ready. It is going to be a very important, very difficult game for us.”
He said: “The important thing we talked about before the game was we cannot concede any goals, because we have the players up front who can score the goals for us. In any action they can create any chances and score goals, and that is what happened.”
