Mancini for all time knew he would be in for a hard month, with the Toure brothers absent on international responsibility and a run of tricky fixtures.
Vincent Kompany and Mario Balotelli were also hit with 4 match deferral s and David Silva picked up a wound as City not working out of the Carling Cup and FA Cup.
They also suffered Premier League beat in opposition to Sunderland and Everton, previous to Saturday’s triumph over Fulham re-established a 2 point lead in the championship race as Manchester United drew withChelsea.
Mancini will shortly have all his key players available again and he thinks City is even on course to become winners.
It is significant to be at the best at the jiffy this is very significant, he said in the Daily Star.
Throughout the period we identify there are hard jiffies. I don’t consider we had a bad month in January, but we had a hard month because this can occur with wound, players absent and players banned.
It is significant that we continue best and don’t consider about the other teams.
He added:ManchesterUnited may triumph all their games they are strong like us. For this cause I don’t consider we may assume about the other teams.
