Platt compares City to Barca
Manchester City assistant manager David Platt compared his side's free-flowing attack in their 3-2 win at QPR to the forward flair of Barcelona.
Goals from Yaya Toure, Edin Dzeko and David Silva ensured City survived an early scare to claim three more points and retain their five-point lead on second-placed Manchester United at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Jay Bothroyd and Heidar Helguson got the goals for Rangers, but it wasn't enough to match City - leaving Platt to heap praise on his players. "The only time I have seen attacking like that is when I watch Barcelona on TV," he said. "We have won the game because we have scored three more goals. "We feel as though there are goals in the team. "Even at 1-0 down, even if it had gone to 2-0, I knew we were not out of it because we have such a goal threat about us."
