The Manchester City manager complained about his team's profligacy despite their equalling of a mark set in 1928 for consecutive matches in which they have scored on their own turf

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has downplayed his team's club record run of scoring in 48 consecutive home games and claimed they should focus instead on ensuring they end the season with a trophy.

MANCHESTER CITY LATEST
6/1 Manchester City are 6/1 with Bet365 to beat Wigan 2-0 in the FA Cup final
City equalled the record set in 1928 under Peter Hodge by beating West Ham 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Mancini, though, believes a failure to take their chances has cost them the Premier League title this season and preferred to focus on their upcoming FA Cup final against Wigan.

"Records only matter when you win a trophy," Mancini told reporters. "With this one we do nothing.

"Our problem this year has been that we didn't score enough to win the title. Against West Ham we deserved to score four or five goals.

"This is my frustration for the season. We had chances to win at Tottenham last week and lost. And against West Ham we didn't score enough."
