Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri believes the whole side should take blame for the goals conceded rather than just the defenders and goalkeeper.
The Citizens ran out 4-2 winners last night against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League, but they were at fault for conceding two sloppy goals and after the game, manager Manuel Pellegrini urged his side to tighten up at the back.
However, Nasri, who scored one of the four goals, insisted that they cannot just score their way out of trouble every week and they must start defending better as a team, rather than just the back four.
“We are scoring a lot of goals but we cannot score four goals every game.
‘We need to improve how we defend as a team.
‘We conceded two goals. In the last game in the Champions League we conceded two as well and (against) Bayern Munich three.
‘We need to improve, as a team, how to defend, especially in the Champions League.
‘Then, if we can continue this form, it will be amazing.’
