Paul Konchesky believes Thursday night's historic win over Juventus can inspire Fulham to an unlikely victory of Barclays Premier League big spenders Manchester City.

The Cottagers head into Sunday afternoon's clash against Roberto Mancini's star-studded side full of confidence having dumped Juventus out of the Europa League with a shock 5-4 aggregate win. City are unbeaten in their last five league games though and a win could see them move into fifth to replace Liverpool, who face leaders Manchester United also on Sunday.

"Juventus are one of the best teams in Europe. But football-wise we outclassed them. That's what we've been like all season," said Konchesky.

"Games like the one against Juventus give you loads of confidence.

"If we can play like that again on Sunday against Manchester City then we've got a great chance."

While Thursday's win will undoubtedly go down as one of the most famous in the club's history, Konchesky believes the team must move on and focus their attention on tomorrow's game and Wednesday's FA Cup quarter-final replay against his former side Tottenham.

"It was a great night for us and for the club but we were back in training on Friday," the former West Ham defender said.

"We've got a big game on Sunday and we've just got to work hard and concentrate on that now."
