Finals countdown

Posted on 17 April 2013  - 12:55

Lewis Holtby is chomping at the bit to face City on Sunday - the first of 'six cup finals’.

Finals countdown

The lads are determined to finish in the top four of the Premier League after the heartbreak of a penalty shoot-out defeat in the Europa League quarter-final at FC Basel last week.

City kick-off our final six matches with Wigan, Southampton, Chelsea, Stoke and Sunderland to follow.

The reigning champions might be 15 points behind rivals United but are starting to show form again - not least in recent wins against United and then Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup last weekend to book a final date against Wigan at Wembley.

It’s a match midfield terrier Lewis is looking forward to. “It will be a tremendous game on Sunday,” he said. “City have just reached the final of the FA Cup and these six games are our cup finals, starting against City.

“They are a side full of quality players but we’re determined to get three points, especially at home. It would be a massive win for us. “

Lewis is looking for the fans to play their part as well. “It’s always great at White Hart Lane with the fans right behind us, everyone buzzing for the game," he said.

“They were brilliant out in Basel and that’s what we need again now on Sunday.

"Everything has to work - the team, the fans, all connected together - and I know everyone is right up for it."
