Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has ordered his players to keep calm and carry on as they close in on the Barclays Premier League title.

A 2-0 victory at Newcastle left City knowing a home win over QPR on Sunday will hand them the trophy for the first time in 44 years, barring a frankly unlikely goals avalanche for rivals Manchester United at Sunderland. The two sides are locked together on 86 points with City enjoying an advantage in goal difference of eight following United's 2-0 home victory over Swansea.

But Mancini is taking absolutely nothing for granted, and he said: "In one game, it can change. It's in our hands and we are playing at the Etihad Stadium. But it doesn't change anything. We need to keep our concentration and our good attitude like we have in the last four or five weeks."
