Man City boss Eriksson admits Schmeichel doubts: But he's my No1

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson admits he has some doubts about Kasper Schmeichel, but will stick with the young Dane as his No1 despite the availability of fit-again Andreas Isaksson.

He said: "I decided to keep Schmeichel and Joe Hart in the squad because I didn't like the idea of taking either of them out.

"I spoke with Isaksson before the game and told him there was nothing personal. I said, 'I'm not saying that Schmeichel is better than you are'. But the situation at this moment is that we have three excellent goalkeepers and you can't switch keepers like you do other players. Goalkeepers need confidence, but the season is long and things change.

"I can see he [Kasper] has problems in the air but I can also see he gets away with it."
