Manchester City defender Gael Clichy concedes he will have to get used to Roberto Mancini's rotation policy, such is the strength in depth at the Etihad Stadium.

Clichy signed from Arsenal in the summer, and has made nine starts in City's 13 Barclays Premier League outings so far this term.

The 26-year-old, though, had the luxury of regular first-team football during his time at the Emirates Stadium, and played 42 times for the Gunners last term.

However, the Frenchman realises he must get over his disappointment when being on the bench and take his opportunities when they arise.

"As a player you always want to play as many games as possible and for me it is a big change because I was used to playing week-in, week-out with Arsenal," said Clichy, according to

"Of course you are disappointed but I am not the only one and so far we have been playing some amazing games against Man Utd, Tottenham and now Liverpool.

"I believe in February we will have the fresh legs to go all the way.

"We need a big squad to go all the way and hopefully we can carry on like this because I think the atmosphere is good and the way we are playing is OK."
