Barry keen to entertain

BY foxsports • August 23, 2011

Roberto Mancini's team have already scored seven goals in their opening two games, adding to their credentials as title contenders. City scored the fewest goals out of the top four clubs in the top flight last season but, along with Chelsea, had the sternest defence. Barry scored in the 3-2 win at Bolton on Sunday and feels that they are firing on all cylinders. He said: "We'd like to keep going, scoring goals and, hopefully, that's something we can do. "We spoke about being defensively solid last season, so we need to try and keep them out at the back. "But if we can add the goals to it we don't mind entertaining as well. "The players who have come in have left the manager with great options. "Having said that, he hasn't moved away from the fact you always need to keep it tight at the back. "If you're going to win the title you have to keep clean sheets. But I'm sure if we can add to the goals tally and keep them out at the other end as well, as we did last season, then we can go far."
