Sunderland winger Adam Johnson feels England players have no chance at Manchester City. Johnson has bagged 11 England caps but saw his international career stall under Mancini.

English aces James Milner, Jack Rodwell and Scott Sinclair - all senior candidates for Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson - are lacking match-time too and Johnson said: "I missed the World Cup two years ago because I wasn't playing.

"I still probably had better stats than some of the players who went and I played half as much. It was more personally about not playing enough. I wanted to play every week.

"It was one of the factors. Coming to Sunderland and playing more would enhance my chances of playing for England more."
