Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has blamed a lack of goals for his side’s failure to retain the Premier League title.

City, who will see the championship go to rivals Manchester United if Alex Ferguson’s men win at Aston Villa on Monday, scored 93 times last season but have managed just 59 so far this campaign.

Mancini boasts a forward line of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko and admitted that with such an array of talent his side should have scored more goals.

“If you want to win you need to score,” he told the Manchester Evening News.

“We didn’t score enough goals to win the title – a team like us should score as many as we did last year. I would accept maybe five or six less than last year, but not 20.”

Mancini was also keen to see a reaction from his charges, both in the coming weeks and next season, saying that they “need to be more angry”.

“We can do nothing about it now, only prepare in the next three or four months to do well next year,” he added, “United deserve to win this title.”
