Lescott: We`re To Blame

Darren-Fletcher-scores-Joleon-Lescott-looks_2363407 Joleon Lescott is blaming defensive errors and not the referee for Manchester City’s 4-3 defeat at Old Trafford.

City boss Mark Hughes has said City were “robbed” after the referee added over five minutes of injury time.

But Lescott knows blame lies with the players who switched off to allow United to score four goals.

“There has been a lot made about the time-keeping at the end, but they are excuses to us now,” said Lescott.

“We are professionals, and have to look at ourselves individually and collectively – and it just wasn’t good enough.

“A lot was made before the game about us coming here and winning, and we thought we could do that. But you can’t go to Old Trafford, concede four goals and expect to get anything. It’s something we now have to work on.

“We made mistakes – in the first four games of the season we kept four clean sheets and everything was rosy but we have now conceded six goals in the last two games, and it’s not great.

“But it’s something we can work on in training and look to put right.”
