Man City defender Mangala delighted with cleansheet for Palace win

Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala was delighted with their cleansheet for victory over Crystal Palace.

Mangala has had a difficult introduction after his £32million summer move from Porto but is now looking a stronger proposition.

"It is always important for us to keep a clean sheet.

"I think we are not making as many mistakes as we did one or two months ago. We need to keep going and continue that run. We need to defend well and score goals like we do at the moment.

"It is true that I had difficulties to adapt at the beginning, but I was expecting that and was prepared. I didn't have any moment of doubt. The more games I play, the more I am settling in."
