Hughes dismisses relegation fears for Man City

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has dismissed concerns they could be dragged into the relegation battle.

Hughes said: "The nature of the Premier League this season is that a couple of back-to-back wins will send you into the top half of the table, so we're not unduly concerned.

"We've got a lot of players out at the moment and, once we get a few of them back, certainly we'll be stronger in the second half of the season, which all my teams have been historically.

"We must make sure we get points on the board and are in the top half leading into the second half of the season.

"In January we'll make sure we try to get good players into the club to complement the quality that we already have."
