Man City boss Eriksson happy to play defensive

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson says he wouldn't have a problem playing defensively for the rest of the season if it brought success.

Referring to last Sunday's victory over Manchester United, Eriksson said: "I could play like we did last week all the time if it meant I could win.

"I would have no problem with that at all.

"The problem against a team like Manchester United is that they are so good in possession, you have to defend a lot.

"What I wanted was for my team to attack when we had the ball, so the only thing I was not 100% happy about was that we weren't more precise in our passing because we did have the chance to create much more than we eventually did."
