The City boss, however, was disappointed with the penalty awarded against Micah Richards for shirt pulling in the 2-0 defeat at Goodison Park.

"I am not a magician," he said after the match. 

"I am a manager and I do not think I can change the situation in a month.

"But I believe we can improve game after game. That is possible.

"It is a long season."

On the penalty decision Mancini added: "For me it was not a penalty..

"You do not see it given for this reason in England - maybe in Italy.

"If this is a penalty then there are five, six, seven, eight [in every game].

"But we have to accept that Everton played very well and better than us."
