Manchester City midfielder James Milner was happy to get on the scoresheet in victory over Aston Villa.

Often a victim of his own versatility, he could be forced to make way for any one of a number of big-name players waiting in the wings, but he insists that team success should always come before personal preference.

"Where the manager asks me to play I will play," he said.

"I've obviously got better positions and places where I feel I can perform to a better standard but I will do the best I can wherever I'm asked to play.

"Manchester City winning matches is the most important thing. It's not about individuals, it's about the team."
