Roberto Mancini has warned his Manchester City players against complacency for this weekend's clash with Reading.

The reigning champions host the bottom-of-the-table Royals on Saturday and despite the gaping difference in their table positions, Mancini is taking nothing for granted.

"We're playing against a team like Reading with only nine points and people say they will be relegated, but it will be a difficult game," Mancini said.

"I watched them against Everton - when they beat Everton - and against United when they lost 4-3.

"Up front they are very strong. Maybe they concede goals but we need to play like against Newcastle (3-1 win last week) if we want to win the game."
