Roberto Mancini believes Manchester City are getting close to their best and will be back firing on all cylinders after the international break.

The reigning Barclays Premier League champions picked up a 2-1 victory at Fulham thanks to substitute Edin Dzeko's late effort. Had the Bosnian not found the net, though, the draw would have seen City go five matches without a win in all competitions for the first time in nearly four years.

Mancini admits his team are yet to find the form they showed last season but believes they are moving in the right direction, as he said: "I think, in my opinion, maybe after the international break we will be OK."
