Man City winger Johnson favours playing wide-right

Manchester City's left-sided winger Adam Johnson admits he prefers playing wide-right.

While he doesn't care whether it is on the right or left flank, it's clear which he prefers.

He told the News of the World: "I probably do my best work down the right. All the top wingers play on the opposite side so they can come in on their stronger foot.

"It shows with (Lionel) Messi and players like that, who play on the opposite sides, with the number of goals they get.

"Going down the outside to get crosses in seems to be going out of the game - it's more about cutting inside and playing off the front man. Like (Arjen) Robben. Players cutting inside from the wing. But I'll play either and if I keep playing well for my club, hopefully I'll be in every game."
