Manchester City new-boy Patrick Vieira believes the Eastlands outfit have a formidable line-up of strikers. Even with Emmanuel Adebayor enduring an horrific time at the African Nations Cup, Mancini still has Carlos Tevez, Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz and British-record signing Robinho to choose from.

"There are so many big names here," said the former Arsenal skipper.

"When you look around Europe I don't know if any other club has five big names like that who can score goals at any time during a game.

"It gives you so much confidence when you go onto a pitch knowing you have all these players. That is what you need to win games."
