Man City boss Mancini glad to get through a difficult January

Roberto Mancini is relieved Manchester City are still top of the Premiership after a testing set of fixtures and missing personnel in January. City crashed out of the Carling Cup and FA Cup and suffered Premier League defeats against Sunderland and Everton.

"It is important to be at the top at the moment - this is very important," he said in the Daily Star.

"During the season we know there are difficult moments. I don't think we had a bad month in January, but we had a difficult month because this can happen with injuries, players away and players banned.

"If you have these problems, maybe it's clear that you can't always play very well."
