We need more wins, says Platt

David Platt has urged the Blues to focus on winning ahead of tonight’s Premier League clash with Wigan.

According to The Guardian, the City coach is concerned that City’s unbeaten league record will prove worthless in the absence of more wins.

“Platt believes that Manchester City's unbeaten Premier League run will count "for nothing" if they do not start picking up more points, with the assistant manager citing Manchester United who have lost three times but still lead the champions by a point,” reports Jamie Jackson.

“City's 0-0 at Chelsea on Sunday was the fifth draw for Roberto Mancini's side.”


David Platt said: "The unbeaten run is there, it becomes a thing people talk about but it counts for nothing if you are drawing games and drawing games and drawing games.”

“We see that after 13 games as we are still a point behind United, who have lost three games, but have also got 10 victories."

Elsewhere this morning, The Telegraph claims City are currently chasing Malaga midfielder Isco – suggesting the potential signing could leave Scott Sinclair’s future in doubt.

“City’s growing interest in Isco, a 20 year-old with two goals and two assists in the Champions League this season, will do little to improve Sinclair’s prospects at the Etihad Stadium,” writes the paper’s Mark Ogden.

“But with his move to City so far proving unsuccessful, Sinclair has been told that Mancini’s 'door is open’ if he wants to seek more football elsewhere.”
