Mancini tells Man Utd: Man City deserved title - we played best football, scored most goals

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists they're deserved champions. Mancini dismisses Manchester United claims that they blew the title on last season's dramatic final day.

He told the Daily Mail: "We were the best team because we played the best football, scored the most goals, conceded the fewest, beat United twice - and dominated them on both occasions. We are very proud of this because we beat a team like United, who are used to winning every year.

"So for us this is very important. I can understand some people saying we were lucky, not just because we scored twice in the last few minutes against QPR, but because we scored quite a lot of goals in the last three or four minutes. But that was because we wanted this title."
