London: Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has set a target of four wins in six games to nab a Champions League football spot.

City is on a high after booking an FA Cup final showdown with Stoke by beating arch-rivals Manchester United.

Mancini ordered his fourth-placed side to forget about the chance of lifting silverware, according to The Sun.

“We have six games to the end of the season, three home and three away so it``s down to us. If we win four of them we have a good chance and don``t have to depend on other teams,” he said.

Mancini dismissed talk that there could be carve up between City and Stoke when they meet in the league three days after the final.

“I respect every opinion but I don``t believe this. Is it unfair to Stoke to suggest this? Maybe,” Mancini said.
