Gael Clichy believes Manchester City must improve before next weekend’s game with Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.
City lost 4-0 to Everton on Sunday - a result that left them 10 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Clichy says the players remain committed to Pep Guardiola’s style of play but admits they must get better if they want to beat high-flying Spurs next weekend in what is now a crucial game.
He said: "We know we must do better. We knew how they were going to play, most of the time with a long ball to Lukaku, and with five at the back and on the counter-attack.
“We knew that, but we also know that we want to play how we want to play, because we believe it's the way to win games. Sometimes you have to be realistic – when there are chances to take you have to score, and when you defend you need to defend better."
