Manchester City v Chelsea: Mancini: 'We Deserved To Win'

Roberto Mancini praised his side following their 2-1 win over Chelsea that sees City now face Wigan in next months FA Cup final.

Speaking post-game Mancini said he was happy 'because we deserved to win'. City had moved into a 2-0 lead early in he second half through Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero but Demba Ba reduced the arrears as Chelsea, after an anonymous first half display, tried to force their way back into the game.

'We played very well in the first half but had a problem for ten minutes in the second half [at the time of Chelsea's goal] as we played like the game was finished.'

Mancini, however, refused to be drawn on the controversial incident that suggested Sergio Aguero stamped on David Luiz late in the game. When pressed, Mancini responded by saying 'I didn't see it. I need glasses.' Equally, he denied disagreed that Chelsea should have been awarded a penalty, instead pointing to an earlier incident where he felt that Yaya Toure had been fouled.
