Lescott: Four wins may be needed

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott believes that his side may need to win all four of their remaining Champions League group games to reach the knockout stages.

The Citizens have taken just one point from their opening two fixtures in Group D and are aware of the need for a victory when they travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax on Wednesday evening.
If they have a bad day, we can win.Frank de Boer
Lescott warned: "People are going to say the next two games are must-wins for us, but I think every game from now until the end of the group stage is a must-win."
City's chances of securing a crucial win over Ajax have been hot by the news that midfield playmaker David Silva has failed to recover from a hamstring strain, while Maicon (foot), Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and Javi Garcia (thigh) also miss out.
The English champions are 1.72 to win in the Amsterdam ArenA and are 9.00 to triumph by a 2-0 margin, while City are 2.62 to keep a clean sheet.
Meanwhile, Ajax head coach Frank de Boer believes that his youthful side can spring a shock on Wednesday, if City have an off-day.
The former Netherlands defender said: "Can we beat City? Of course, but we have to stick to our philosophy and play our own game.
"We are convinced that if we do that and everybody is in good form then, with the talented players we have, we can make it difficult for any club. If they have a bad day, we can win."
