Manchester City midfielder Javi Garcia is determined to prove his quality.

The former Benfica ace has had an inconsistent first six months at City.

"I think the games against Stoke and Newcastle have been my best for City so far and I enjoyed the win at St James' Park," he told City's website.

"I have not shown my best form so far because I was out with an injury for a month and it takes time to adapt to the Premier League. The set-back came at a bad time for me and it's been hard to get going."
