The German has given Fulham fresh hope since taking charge last month, picking up four points in four games, including last weekend's 1-0 win over Newcastle.

Magath's first victory as manager moved the team within four points of safety, but he refuses to get carried away and is not thinking about long-term targets.

"I don't count points because I have no influence on what the other teams will do. I don't care, I only look at the next game," he said.

"I'm looking to take a point at Man City, so we'll see. We want to win our home games and we did well against Newcastle."

Fulham face a daunting trip to Manchester City on Saturday, with the hosts hoping to cut the gap on their title rivals.

But Magath insists his side can return from the Etihad with a positive result if they display the same defensive discipline that frustrated Newcastle.

"We're developing step by step and I was very satisfied with the game against Newcastle over 90 minutes because we didn't concede," he added.

"There is always a chance, even in difficult games like Manchester City. Now we know that we must not concede. We can defend very well.

"If we make it difficult for Man City to score, we'll have a chance to score for ourselves. I hope we'll create more chances."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG.

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
