Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour has spoken of their targets for this season.
The Sheikh gave a detailed interview to the Al Ittihad newspaper.
"We must not forget that our main objective is to win the English Premier League and if we achieve that, then it will have an impact on the team and the club as a whole and will show we can achieve anything," he said.
"Sometimes I meet a lot of Emirati and Arab brothers in London, and see them criticise the work of Roberto Mancini, but I think that his plans are going on the right path.
"We have to ask ourselves where we have been and what Manchester City have become now. To realise that what we have accomplished is great.
"Hard work is still required but we are all satisfied with what has been achieved, the success and development at this level. However you must have patience."
