Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini wants his side to tighten up in defence after they conceded twice for the second game in succession, with a 2-2 draw at Liverpool having left the Italian exasperated.
Mancini was furious with the way in which his Premier League champions failed to keep out two set-pieces as Martin Skrtel and Luis Suarez both netted for the Reds.
Luck was on City's side twice as two defensive mishaps allowed Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez to claw back a point for the visitors at Anfield.
"This is the time to finish conceding two goals every game," Blues boss Mancini said.
"But we have taken one point when we went down two times.
"We started with the ball for 30 minutes, we had it in their half and had four or five chances to score.
"But we conceded a goal from a corner and something changed."
