Gareth Barry : We Must Bounce Back Against Manchester United!

Gareth Barry is confident that Manchester City can overcome arch rivals Manchester United in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final.

The Eastlands club, backed by billionaire Arab owners were easily beaten 3-0 by Liverpool in their last Premier League outing.

City will be without captain and leading scorer Carlos Tevez at Wembley on the weekend after he was injured but Barry is maintaining a positive outlook.

Barry told the club’s official site : “Last night was our worst performance of the season,”.

“It is tough to put your finger on anything. I am not sure we can blame Saturday too much. Our focus has always been on the league position.

“At times like this, you just have to bounce back and I believe it will be easy for us to pick ourselves up.

“It is a massive game for the club. A semi-final at Wembley. It is the sort of game that will help us rather than hinder.

“If you can’t get yourself up for that you shouldn’t be in the game.”
