Man City No1 Given: We must start keeping cleansheets

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given says they must start producing cleansheets again.

City have been leaking goals in recent weeks and Given told City's website: "We're really disappointed when we concede. You get accolades for clean sheets and you get a bit of stick for conceding goals, so we want as many clean sheets as possible.

"That applies to myself, the defenders, and the team itself as a unit. We want to be defending better because clean sheets give you a great base.

"The games that we were winning 1-0 and 2-0 earlier in the season came from clean sheets. We've got to get back to that, and hopefully we will do that."
