After defeating Bolton Wanderers, Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson believes they will still beat the drop this season.

"I think they have got a good chance to do it (survive)," said Eriksson. "It is always very difficult to play against Bolton because of the way they play.

"It is not a critique against them because they have players that play like they do. It is very difficult to stand up to them.

"I saw their game against Manchester United and I don't think they deserved to lose. It is very difficult to break them down."
