Manchester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel was delighted with his third successive cleansheet after yesterday's victory over Manchester United.

Schmeichel said: "It was hard work and took a massive team effort. We rode our luck once or twice but we are enjoying it now."

City boss Sven Goran Eriksson was also fulsome in his praise of the young goalkeeper, who was watched by his legendary father Peter.

Eriksson said: "If you saw Kasper in training you would not be surprised by these performances.

"You will not find many goalkeepers better on the line than him."
