Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is still setting his sights on winning two trophies this season in the wake of the Blues' UEFA Champions League exit.
City, competing in Europe's elite competition for the first time this season, were dumped out at the group stage despite beating Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.
But the Blues could still enjoy a memorable season as Mancini aims for domestic and European success.
The Premier League leaders hold a five-point lead over reigning champions Manchester United in the race for the title and face Liverpool in a Carling Cup semi-final next month.
Mancini also believes his team can win the Europa League, which they have dropped into following their Champions League exit, while their FA Cup defence begins against neighbours United next month.
The Italian said: "It is my opinion next year, that if we play Champions League, we will do better.
"I am sure we will improve, but it is important to finish well this year.
"When I say finish well this year I mean to maybe win two trophies.
"The Europa League is now an important trophy.
"The Premier League is the priority - and the Europa League, Carling Cup and FA Cup.
"If we are lucky and we don't have a lot of injuries in the future, we have a team that can play all competitions."
