Richard Dunne believes all the players at Manchester City are playing for their futures at Eastlands.

City skipper Dunne admits fighting for a place in Europe and securing their personal futures are the two main incentives to ensure they finish the season on a high.

Cash-rich City have endured a disappointing campaign, with their poor away form restricting their chances of challenging for a top six finish.

City are expected to bring in many new faces in the summer courtesy of owners the Abu Dhabi United Group and Dunne knows some of the current crop could find their places under threat.

Dunne, whose own future has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks, insists he wants to stay at City.

Future

"I definitely want to stay here and be part of the club as it pushes forward. I'm sure every player here feels the same," he said.

"We need more performances like the one against Everton to show the manager we are worthy of playing in his team.

"He has his plans and he will sign players in the summer, there's nothing you can do about that.

"Players are putting in a performance to try and get us a highest ever Premier finish and hopefully with it a place in Europe.

"We are determined not to just let this season peter out in a few pointless matches. We really want that place and beating Everton was a great boost given that our away record has been really poor.

"It was a real team performance. When we have possession, nobody can deal with our skill on the ball. Once we put the work in to go with it, we are a really good side."
