Mark Hughes believes his Manchester City side have to become more consistent away from home if they are to have an impact next season.
City head to Old Trafford to face Manchester United next week chasing a victory that means more to them than just increasing interest in the title race.
With Tottenham and Bolton to follow, a win for the Blues would bring a return to Europe within touching distance.
"We have produced some very good football in this stadium," said Hughes.
"We have got a lot of points, scored a lot of goals and entertained the people who watch us.
"Maybe next season we will try to not entertain quite so much away from home."
