Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini was pleased his players overcame tiredness to edge out Swansea 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

The Barclays Premier League champions were again far from their best but moved within a point of the top after Carlos Tevez settled an otherwise poor game with a fine strike. City and Mancini received considerable criticism after suffering defeat to Ajax in the Champions League in midweek and the manager felt that game had taken much out of his players.

The Italian said: "Our performance in the first half was so-so because I think we were so tired but in the second half we played better, we had a lot of chances to score. In this moment, when you are in a difficult moment, after a defeat in the Champions League, it is important we start to win quickly."
