Lescott - 'My Transfer Won't Spur On Everton'
Joleon Lescott says his move from Everton will not provide extra motivation for the Merseysiders this weekend.
Joleon Lescott: "It might be the case, but when I was at Everton we beat City on a number of occasions, so I don't think it's down to my transfer.
"I wouldn't say they raise their game, because they are always tough opponents against any team. Goodison is a tough away ground.
"The whole club will be disappointed with their result against Wigan, but you know they will be hard at it in training determined to get a result against us.
"The fact they have gone out has no bearing on what happens on Saturday. We know it's a very tough game, and has been since I joined the club.
"We know if we are not fully on it we will get beaten, so we have to go there determined to get three points and with the same application we showed against Barnsley."
