Eriksson can't choose between Man City keepers

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits he doesn't know who to consider as his first-choice goalkeeper.

"Joe (Hart) came on and did well and is knocking very hard on the door," Eriksson told City's website.

"I think Kasper (Schmeichel) has been doing extremely well but maybe he is not yet the best on crosses. He is big and tall but I was a little afraid of free-kicks and corners against us, with Viduka being such a big, strong forward for Newcastle.

"It was more of a feeling than a reason and I understand why Kasper is disappointed. Andreas (Isaksson) has been very unlucky with injuries and is very nearly back to 100%.

"I do not know who the best is and if you ask our goalkeeping coach Eric Steele he would say the same. Some of the saves all three were making in training this morning were incredible."
