Mancini relieved to avoid Cup upset

City manager Roberto Mancini was happy his side avoided a cup upset, unlike some Premier League rivals yesterday.

Mancini said: "It was important to win this game, clearly if you score two goals in the first 20 minutes it is easier.

"The FA Cup is a difficult competition. Arsenal yesterday, Everton, other teams that play in the Premier League that went out of the competition ... if you don't play with full concentration it is difficult.
