After succumbing to a dramatic late header from Paul Scholes to slump to another defeat against Manchester United this season, Manchester City defender Wayne Bridge is convinced the loss has done plenty of good for the side. The left-back believes the disappointing result, along with the manner of how the match ended, has the squad more pumped than ever to end the campaign in fourth in the Premier League.

Losing was a real kick in the teeth but the prize is still there. The momentum is perhaps with Spurs but at the same time we know that fourth place is still in our hands,” Bridge said on the club’s official website. “If anything, losing like we did has just made us even more determined – that was the mood in the dressing room afterwards.”

Man city will face a real challenge to get their push for fourth spot back on track, as they next face an Arsenal side keen to erase the memory of a shocking defeat to Wigan Athletic at the weekend.
