Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson insists he will not change his blueprint about the way football should be played.

The former England boss believes a passing game is the way forward, even though City's European hopes are fading fast after only two wins in 12 Premier League games.

City host Tottenham on Sunday and Eriksson told the Manchester Evening News: "I would change the way we approach things if I thought we had played bad football but we haven't.

"We are not winning because we are not scoring goals, but we are creating chances.

"That's why I am a little reluctant to create a revolution in the way we play, because I don't think it is necessary.

"We are doing okay, we just have to try not to concede any stupid goals."
