Sven Goran Eriksson is convinced Manchester City are on the verge of a successful new era.

Boss Eriksson was thrilled with Saturday's 3-1 win over Newcastle but insists there is still plenty more to come from the Blues.

Eriksson, who has defied his England critics after returning to club football, vowed: "I think we will get better.

"The more we play and train together the better we will get because we can do more tactical work.

"The players are young and hungry and the new ones we have brought in love the Premier League.

"If we go on playing like that, I'm sure we will have an excellent season."
