Man City boss Mancini calls for players to focus

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has called for his players to maintain their focus after victory over Chelsea.

Mancini could not offer an explanation why City have now beaten Chelsea and Liverpool this season but failed to overcome Sunderland or Blackburn.

However, with Juventus to come in the Europa League on Thursday and then Newcastle next Sunday as part of three home matches in a row, the Italian is hoping to maintain the momentum.

"I hope the result will be important for us," he said.

"We can stay quiet. We can recover.

"But on Monday we must think about the next game in the Europa League. This result can help us to work harder and work well.

"We still have to get a lot of our players back.

"But we cannot think everything is OK just because we won this game."
