City also snatched a late win in their last away match at Craven Cottage to help add to a growing reputation for grinding out results in the latter stages of important games.
Lescott believes that comeback victories are a trait maintained by trophy-winning sides and admitted it reminds him of title rivals Manchester United.
He told The Sun: "If we can take something from our neighbours and use it to benefit us, then great.
"Everyone knows we are a good footballing side. But when we need to dig in and be together we can do that. We showed that."
City revert to Champions League action in midweek with a trip to Amsterdam to face Dutch champions Ajax.
