Manchester City need killer instinct, says Mancini
MANCHESTER, United Kingdom (AFP) - Roberto Mancini admits Manchester City need to be more ruthless after the champions were held to a 1-1 draw against Everton ahead of next weekend's crucial showdown with arch rivals Manchester United.
Mancini will take his City team to Germany in midweek for a final Champions League qualifying group game against Borussia Dortmund where even victory will not dull the edge of another early exit from Europe's elite competition.
But Mancini and his players are already focused on the first Manchester derby of the season when Premier League leaders United visit Eastlands next Sunday with a three-point lead over second placed City.
Mancini accepts City are not firing on all cylinders and that was clear again on Saturday as Everton were prevented from leaving with a surprise win only by a Carlos Tevez penalty equaliser that Toffees manager David Moyes strongly disputed.
