Mancini wants more from City

Roberto Mancini still wants more from his players despite seeing Manchester City take over at the top of the Premier League table with an emphatic 4-1 success against previously unbeaten Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium.
With bitter rivals Manchester United held to a 1-1 draw at Liverpool earlier in the day, City knew victory would put them at the summit ahead of next weekend's derby showdown, and they duly obliged to sweep Villa aside.
With the club again refusing to accept questions over former captain los Tevez in their post-match press conference, Mancini was left to reflect on an afternoon where four different players found the net and the Argentina international was not missed.
Mario Balotelli Maropened the scoring with a neat overhead kick in the 28th minute, before second half goals from Adam Johnson Vincent Kompany and James Milner put the visitors firmly in their place, with Stephen Warnock's reply little more than a consolation.
Prior to their titanic derby tussle at Old Trafford on Sunday, there is the small matter of a UEFA Champions League clash at home to Villarreal on Tuesday night as they look to get their European campaign up and running.
