Motivation not a problem for Mancini

Published Add your comment

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has urged his players to maintain their form right until the end of the season.

The Citizens currently sit in fourth spot in the Barclays Premier League with a seven-point advantage over nearest rivals Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

"We have been in the top four for a long time. We are not under pressure because we have a big chance to hit the target we set at the start of the season," said Mancini.

A healthy position to be in for sure, but the Citizens boss is targeting maximum points from the next two games as they prepare to face an in-form Everton side this weekend, followed by a home tie against Spurs on Tuesday.


"I have picked the same team for the last three games but maybe we will change things at Everton and against Spurs."

With City hoping to finish the season on a high, they also have a Wembley date to look forward to, when they face Stoke City in the FA Cup final on 14 May.

"We can only relax after May 22, not before, and we should try to get the maximum number of points that we can.

"I think after what we have done, we deserve to be in the Champions League, but we have another four games - it is not finished."
