Manchester City fullback Gael Clichy feels they must be more ruthless after a scrappy win over Bolton Wanderers.

City had 23 shots throughout the game, 10 on target, and Clichy thinks they must improve the scoring ratio, even though they have struck 69 times in 27 league games.

Clichy told City TV: "After 10 minutes we could have been 4-0 up, it is then a different game.

"At the end of the day we kept a clean sheet and scored two goals, but we have to be more efficient in front of goal and be more professional.

"Those kind of chances are good chances and we can't afford, against a bigger team, not to score those chances."
