Milner blames City slump on away form

Published Add your comment

James Milner admitted Manchester City have paid for their lack of "ruthlessness" away from home in 2012 after Arsenal dealt what could be a fatal blow to their Barclays Premier League title hopes.

The 1-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday left Roberto Mancini's men facing a barren season, with arch-rivals Manchester United going into the final six matches eight points clear at the summit - just over a month after City were the ones in control with a five-point cushion.

Midfielder Milner said: "We have been very strong at home, but away have not got the results we want. It is about having that ruthlessness on the road which we can learn from."
