Mancini targets win in Naples

BY foxsports • November 22, 2011

City are enjoying a first season in the Champions League and know victory in Naples on Tuesday evening would clinch a spot in the knockout stages. A point would still leave the Premier League leaders as favourites to progress, but Mancini is adamant his players will be going out to win. The Italian is determined to maintain the stunning form his side have shown already this season and accepts defeat by Napoli is likely to end their Champions League dreams. "I come home to win," said Mancini. "We don't know any other way. "We cannot change the way we play just for this one game. Playing for a draw is not in our mentality. "This is the kind of match players like mine want to play in. It is what we have been building towards. "Maybe we have come too far too quickly but we don't want to stop now. The last thing Manchester City want is Thursday nights in the Europa League. "This is going to be difficult and demanding, so hard, but we are confident. You could say this is our last chance because defeat means the Champions League is probably over."
