Nedum Onuoha admitted disappointment after Manchester City's defeat at Stoke.

The young defender told City's website: “I think we should have really come away with the three points, especially given the fact we played against 10-men for so long, so it was quite disappointing.

“It was difficult, but then at the same time we dealt with it at home and they didn’t really create a lot from it here, it was just a case of us unfortunately not being able to score the goals today.

“We’ve played in games like this one before and I think with the players we have in the team now, the strength and height we have is in the back four, and everything else in front of that is based on skill and technique.

“A lot of the teams we play against just try and put four defenders there and four midfielders there and it’s up to us to try and break them down.

“Even if Stoke hadn’t have been a man down they would have played the same way and unfortunately we just couldn’t break them down.”
