First team coach David Platt claims the number of goals Manchester City are scoring this season is "irrelevant" compared to the importance of winning games.

The Barclays Premier League leaders took their tally for the season to 48 in just their 14th game as they hammered promoted Norwich 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium. City are well on course to break Chelsea's 2009-10 Premier League record of 103 but Platt insists that is not important.

"The goals are irrelevant as long as we get the points," said Platt.
