Manchester City moves to berth

Roberto Mancini has his eyes firmly on playing in next season's Champions League after Manchester City's resounding 6-1 win over struggling Burnley in the Premier League moved them into fourth place. City moved into final Champions League berth with Saturday's win, which featured five different goalscorers.
It was City's biggest away win in the Premier League and their best result in the top flight since a 5-0 win at Manchester United in February 1955.
"It's important to be fourth now but it will be important to be there at the end of the season," Mancini said. "Now we play six games and they are six difficult games but if we have concentration like the first half today we have a good chance."
Mancini admitted he had never been part of a side that had gone 3-0 up after seven minutes and 5-0 up by half-time. Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice, with contributions from Craig Bellamy, Carlos Tevez, Patrick Vieira and Vincent Kompany.
