Manchester City coach David Platt says he has no concerns about the form of the club's strikers, despite a recent lack of goals.

City have scored just two goals in their last four away games, as they lost their lead at the top of the table, and now trail Manchester United by three points.

Their miserable away form continued on Saturday with a 1-1 draw at Stoke, and that goal was scored by midfielder Yaya Youre.

"It's difficult at Stoke - they get people behind the ball and it's very compact, making it hard to find space," said Platt.

"They (the strikers) have lead the line and it's not a case of them not firing.

"There is no real concern. People talk about individual games, but the fact is we are where we are because we have played 30 games and done very well so far. We have to ensure we do well between now and the end."
