Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair is unsure of how often he will play for his new side, with the former Swansea man admitting that competition for places is so fierce he could be waiting for a while.
The 6.2 million pound summer signing has made just two starts for Roberto Mancini's side after making the step up from the Swans, but insists he will "give 100 percent" in order to gain a starting role.
While the young winger may not be playing regularly, he still feels he can learn a lot by working with the "world-class" players City has at its disposal.
"I don't know how often I'll play, because competition for places is intense," he told reporters. "I made my debut against Stoke and then played against Arsenal and Aston Villa. All I can do now is concentrate on the next game and give 100 percent. I'm just looking forward to playing in any games. All I can do is try to make an impact when the opportunity arises."
The winger feels he can improve from being in the presence of such gifted players, though, and believes with such a talented squad he will get opportunities to impress as players are rested and rotated.
"I'll aim to improve off all the world-class players here," he added. "Everyone will be rotated, so it's down to the manager's choice. I'll just work hard and try and get the nod again."
The Premier League champion beat Sinclair's former side 1-0 on Saturday, but the winger himself did not feature from the bench.
