Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists they'll successfully retain the title.

City trail leaders Chelsea by four points already. But boss Mancini claims his outfit are just getting into their stride and has no worries about retaining the crown.

He said: "We will win the title. I agree it is more difficult second time.

"It can happen the year after you win the title that the first month, second month, you don't play well like last year.

"We are there, just four points behind Chelsea having played two difficult away games. We just need to start winning two or three games in a row."
