Eriksson admits Man City better with Elano

Sven Goran Eriksson admits Manchester City lean heavily on the influence of Elano.

The Brazilian is back for tonight's Carling Cup semi against Tottenham and Eriksson said: "It's no secret he has been very important to us this season and he has been behind a lot of goals we have scored.

"If you ask any of the players they would say that yes, we are a better team with him.

"But if we play as we did in the second half against Bolton we have a good chance of making it to the semi-final."
