Sven-Goran Eriksson has hailed his City side after they claimed a derby double in his first season as Blues' boss.

Speaking after his side made it two wins from two against the near neighbours, Sven stated: "Six points against Manchester United in one season is very good.

"Everyone belonging to City, the fans, players and directors, should be very proud of what they did here today.

"I think we deserved to win. We created more chances so we're very happy. It was a great result. I'm really proud of all the players and happy for the fans.

"It was a very important game for us and even more important for United if they want to win the race with Arsenal.

"We had the right spirit and the right attitude. It was a great job. I am extremely pleased and proud of our team. When you go to Old Trafford and win you deserve it.

"Everyone was really up to it and collectively we were fantastic."
