Premier League: Bacary Sagna says Manchester City want silverware on all fronts

Bacary Sagna says Manchester City are chasing silverware in all competitions this season, but realises the size of the task.
Sagna, who joined on a free transfer from Arsenal this summer, is yet to make his debut in a City side that have won both of their opening Premier League games.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men started their campaign with a 2-0 win at Newcastle before beating last season’s nearest title rivals Liverpool 3-1 at home.
City have been drawn alongside 2013 winners Bayern Munich, Roma and CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, a competition they are yet to make their mark in.
Sagna said: "We want to win everything but we know how difficult it will be.
"I can promise the City fans I will work hard and never give less than 100 per cent when I play.
"We are the Premier League champions and we know everyone will want to beat us, but we will be ready."
Pablo Zabaleta is City’s first-choice right-back but Sagna believes the competition for places can only be a good thing.
He added: "Your body needs time to recover and if there are two players for every position, it’s easier to alternate when needed to keep the team fresh."
