Mancini cool over strikers' form

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is backing his misfiring strikers to get his side's title charge back on track.

Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko have scored 43 times between them in all competitions this season but their lack of goals in recent weeks has compounded the team's loss of form. City endured a difficult January, losing twice in the Barclays Premier League and being knocked out of two cup competitions.

Top scorer Aguero has not scored in five, Balotelli is serving a four-game suspension and although Dzeko has scored two in his last four matches, he has spurned a number of chances. Mancini, thinking back to City's free-scoring start to the campaign, said: "People were saying how many goals City could score - 100, 200 - but this is impossible."
