Man City boss Mancini ready to drop ALL his strikers

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is ready to drop ALL his strikers after their blank at Sunderland.

Mancini was frustrated by another blank from Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero as his team slumped to defeat at Sunderland to fall seven points behind in the title race.

Aguero, Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko have managed just three goals between them in the last eight City games.

"We still have a big problem that we don't score, and we need to change," said Mancini. "Maybe we need to play without a striker, or with just one striker. We need to do something. If we want to win this championship we need to score like we did last year.

"We have top strikers, but maybe we are too soft when we get a chance because we think we have good players and maybe we feel we will score the next chance that comes along."
