Manchester City midfielder Dietmar Hamann insists the club must keep up their excellent start to the season at Eastlands to have any hope of qualifying for Europe.

The Blues are second in the Premier League after six games played, with Sven-Goran Eriksson having so far won three out of three at home with no goals conceded.

And Hamann told Sky Sports: "It won´t be easy. After 10 or 12 games you will see whether the big four make a move and obviously it´s very difficult to stay up there,"
