London: Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini fears lack of a killer instinct among his players could cost them winning the Premier League title. “I was anxious. I want my team to become more clinical as that will be better for us.

I don’t understand why we are missing chances. When you have six or eight chances you need to score more goals,” The Sun quoted Mancini, as saying.

City bounced back after suffering a crushing 3-2 derby defeat last weekend to Manchester United, the paper said. Mancini added: “When you lose, particularly against United, it’s important to win again quickly.” The Toon lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Boss Alan Pardew said: “After half-time we completely bossed it. City were hanging in there but nicked the third goal. It’s put us under pressure now before QPR come here, which is a big game.”
