Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is upset with his expensive strikers.

He used each of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli at different stages of Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea.

Mancini said: “I don’t know how many times we crossed and didn’t have any players in the box. This cannot happen.

“We have four good strikers, but I want them to work harder and to score when they have a chance — they are strikers and this is what they are there for.

“They have to defend as well, of course, but they need to put chances away. I am happy with the performance, but not with what happened near their box. We are in second position and we don’t like that.”
