Given admits top four finish a must for Man City

Shay Given says finishing in the top four has to be the bare minimum for Manchester City this season.

After their FA Cup elimination by Stoke City this week, goalkeeper Given admits the result was a major setback for the club.

He told City's website: "It's disappointing that we won't be able to win a trophy this season, but I think finishing in one of the Champions League spots would soften the blow.

"Then, next season we can kick on again and hopefully put that right."
