West Brom’s Cox reckons pressure cranking up on Man City boss

Simon Cox has warned Roberto Mancini he is facing even more pressure in the light of Manchester City's shock loss to West Bromwich Albion in the Carling Cup.

Now City must bounce back in Saturday's eagerly-awaited Premier League crunch with leaders Chelsea, knowing the heat is starting to be applied to a squad that has been put together at a cost of over £200million.

"When you are at a club like Manchester City and you spend £200million on players you expect silverware," said Cox.

"Mancini has to deal with that and a lot of questions are going to be asked.

"This was a good opportunity for them. Their manager has stuck out a team he thought would win the game and they didn't, so he could be under a bit of pressure."
