Video: I Need My Injured Players Back

City boss Roberto Mancini told BBC Match of the Day viewers following his teams 1-0 win over Wigan just how much he needs his injured players back.

'In the first half we played well and had three or four chances. The second half was very hard. We were very tired. The difficulty was that the players played three days ago...It was important that we won the game after we lost two points against Fulham...But when you have only 14 or 15 players fit it is very difficult.'

'We have five days before the Kyiv game. The problem is that we are playing every three or four days. We go to Kyiv and play, fly back in the night, it is very difficult. But this is how it is for a top team.'

'The players want to win every game, but sometimes it's not possible. We haven't the players available. But the situation is good because we have two cup games now that it's important to get a good result in.'
