West Brom striker Cox happy heaping pressure on Man City boss Mancini

West Bromwich Albion striker Simon Cox was happy to heap more pressure on Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini this week by beating them in the Carling Cup.

City must bounce back in Saturday's eagerly-awaited Premier League crunch with leaders Chelsea, knowing the heat is starting to be applied to a squad that has been put together at a cost of over £200million.

"When you are at a club like Manchester City and you spend £200million on players you expect silverware," said Cox.

"Mancini has to deal with that and a lot of questions are going to be asked.

"This was a good opportunity for them. Their manager has stuck out a team he thought would win the game and they didn't, so he could be under a bit of pressure."
