Man City boss Mancini admits feeling pressure going into Cup win

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he felt pressure going into their FA Cup win over Leeds United.

Mancini, who made clear he was not fearing for his position prior to a game billed as vital for his future, intends to carry on fighting on both fronts.

He said: "I had a negative energy after Southampton but I am happy after this game.

"I wanted a response after Southampton and we played well. Now it is important we continue.

"We are a top team. If we lose an important game we should continue to work hard. In football it is never finished."
