City skipper eyes top four

11 Jan 2008 - 14:32:08

Manchester City captain Richard Dunne believes the resurgent club can upset the Premier League's established big four and qualify for the Champions League.

Sven-Goran Eriksson's side are currently fourth in the table and Dunne believes their performance in the goalless draw against Liverpool on December 30 has proved to the City players that they are good enough to remain there.

The Citizens are currently one point ahead of the Merseyside club, who were expected to join Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea in a runaway top four this season.

"We came off the pitch against Liverpool and thought they were not that much better than us," he told the club's official website "We all took some confidence from that.

"Last year it was Arsenal that people thought would be the team to catch, but this year Liverpool are the team who have not pulled away from the rest of us.

"They are a side the likes of ourselves, Everton and Aston Villa will be trying to catch.

"We are all in there and we have as much chance as them of getting into that fourth position."

Meanwhile, City have reportedly agreed to sign Iraq midfielder Nashat Akram from United Arab Emirates side Al-Ain following a successful trial.
