Comments...
Roy Hodgson:
'It was always going to be tough. We know how good they are and we would have to be at our best. I'm very pleased that we kept our shape and discipline.'

'We almost sneaked it at the end on the break, but I'm not unhappy with a point.'


Roberto Mancini:
'Today was difficult. We knew this before the game. When you a play a team with all players behind the ball at home, if you don't score in the first half it's not easy, you don't have any space.'

'When we have a chance we should score but maybe we were too slow in the first half.'

'It is impossible to score three or four goals for 38 games. There will be some moments in the year when you won't score. We did everything today and wanted to win, but couldn't.'
