James Milner has given an insight into the reason behind Manchester City's continued resurgence, and reveals how he is relishing life at the Etihad Stadium.

The 25-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of Roberto Mancini's most improved players this term, having responded well to increased competition for places with some tremendous performances for the Citizens.

"We're playing good football, [and] it's exciting to be a part of this team," said Milner. "We're attacking, scoring a lot of goals, but that's based on a solid defence. It starts at the front, defending as a team, but the boys at the back deserve a lot of credit.

"In a big team effort there's obviously squad rotation but players are stepping up when required and it's great to be a part of.

"It took me a while to settle in but hopefully I can keep improving and contributing to Manchester City winning football matches. That's all that matters."

Since joining City 15 months ago from Aston Villa, Milner has made 55 League and Cup appearances, including 18 as a substitute and has scored 3 goals. Now he is looking to push on, in search of major honours.

"Everyone gets on well, everyone tries to help each other out," he continued. "We eat together, leave together and there's banter going on all the time.

"I have been very fortunate to play with top players at big clubs. You look down the squad list here and it's full of top, top players.

"To see what some of these guys can do with finishing, touches and link up play it's great to be a part of and hopefully we can achieve something this season."
