Gary Neville paying no attention to Gent vs. Zenit St Petersburg

Gary Neville is only concentrating on Valencia's Champions League clash with Lyon, rather than worrying about whether Gent drop points against Zenit St Petersburg.

New Valencia head coach Gary Neville has insisted that his sole focus will be on his side's final Champions League group encounter against Lyon tomorrow night.

In order to progress through to the knockout stages, Neville's men must defeat their French counterparts and hope that Gent are unable to get the better of leaders Zenit St Petersburg in the group's other contest.

However, despite needing a favour from elsewhere, the 40-year-old has claimed that he will have "blinkers on" at the Mestalla.

"I've got blinkers on when it comes to thinking about what we're going to do, but not about Lyon's mentality or how Zenit are going to do elsewhere because I can't control those things," he told reporters.

"The focus from me is on our team and what we're going to do to nullify their strengths because they have good strengths.

"The first 48 hours here in Valencia we have to concentrate on our game, our opponent and nothing else."

In the reverse fixture against Lyon in September, Valencia ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Sofiane Feghouli's first-half goal.
