Up for the battle: Kolarov (left) believes City can now go unbeaten
Aleksandar Kolarov rounded on Manchester City's critics on Tuesday and claimed they are unbeatable when they show the spirit that carried them to a dramatic win over Tottenham.
Despite not hitting peak form so far, City remain the only unbeaten side in the Barclays Premier League and are just two points off top spot after overturning a 1-0 deficit against Tottenham on Sunday.
'I understand why we get so much criticism, but if we carry on playing with the same spirit we showed against Spurs, nobody can beat us,' declared the City left-back.
'Everyone wants to, because we are the champions and we haven't lost this season. The smallest teams and the biggest teams, they all want to beat us and they all give 200 per cent to try and do it.
'We may have lost games in the Champions' League, but I think we are still the best team in the Premier League. Beating Spurs was a big step, not just for the three points but because we had a good spirit. We need to stay on this road, train well and keep playing to this level.'
Kolarov admitted misgivings over City's zonal marking system and urged team-mate Edin Dzeko to shrug aside any frustration at not being in the starting line-up.
'We need to improve on set-pieces, because we conceded two goals against Ajax in the Champions' League and then another on Sunday,' he said.
On target: Kolarov urged unsettled Dzeko to concentrate on the job in hand
'We mark from zone to zone but nobody knows who needs to mark the player.
'It is important for us that Edin continues to score, whether from the bench or starting. It is tough, but not just for him. It is the same for me and others who do not play every game. It is hard to keep your form at a high level, but we are professional and need to accept it is the manager's choice.'
