Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has warned his players they will have to improve if they are to get anything out of Tuesday's Champions League trip to Naples.

City take on Napoli, knowing they must win in order to seal a place in the knockout phase and avoid a nervous last-day encounter with Bayern Munich. They warmed up with a decent 3-1 win over Newcastle, which ended the Magpies' unbeaten record and maintained their own advantage at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

However, despite a couple of penalties from Mario Balotelli and Sergio Aguero either side of a Micah Richards effort, Mancini still found room for complaint and he said: "I know what we can find more in Naples. Naples this season are playing very well at home. If we want to win in Naples, we should play better than we did this afternoon."
