Zabaleta warning

Sunday, December 29, 2013

LONDON - Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta has warned his teammates they can't afford to rest on their laurels as the English Premier League title race heats up.

City kept the pressure on leaders Arsenal with a 2-1 win over title rivals Liverpool on Thursday, but there is no time to savour that crucial conquest as the hectic Christmas schedule means Manuel Pellegrini's team are back in action on Saturday.

"We have to push even more now. We know December and January is one of the key points for the big teams to make a difference because we play many games and you need to try to keep winning," Zabaleta said.
