John Stones has said Manchester City’s players were “massively disappointed” after their quadruple hopes were ended by League One Wigan Athletic.
“We felt we should have got something out of the game, or at least taken the game back to the Etihad.
“That’s been cut short now, the run in all four competitions, which we wanted to be in, right until the end, fighting for everything. The overall feeling is massively disappointed.
“I think we’ve had that mindset that we can win every game and that’s probably why we have gone on such a good winning streak and not lost.
“I think it hurts even more that we’ve lost because we’re not used to doing it. We have only lost twice before this this season.”
“We have got to look at the game and make sure we take everything from it, good and bad,” he added.
“I think that is how we move forward and bounce back quickly because we’ve got the chance to win some silverware at the weekend.
“We know we can’t doubt any team. We have got to respect every team we play. We did that [at Wigan] but that is football. You can’t always write it or say what is going to happen.
“Strange things happen in football. It’s happened and we need to move on quickly.”
