Pellegrini Not Think Chelsea
Manchester – Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, reluctant to think of the results obtained by the rival team, Chelsea. Pellegrini chose to focus on the City and matches in the rest of the season.
After the defeat of Burnley and Barcelona, City back to winning ways. The Citizens beat West Bromwich Albion with a 3-0 score in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday (21/03/2015). Three goals City shared equally by Wilfried Bony, Fernando, and David Silva.
“We previously lost twice in different competitions, so it’s important back wins,” Pellegrini said on Sky Sports.
Thanks to the victory over West Brom, City cut the distance to Chelsea. They are now in second place of the standings with 61 points, three points adrift of Chelsea. However, City played two games more.
Pellegrini said he was going to watch the match Hull City vs. Chelsea on Sunday (22/03/2015). According to him, watching Chelsea play will be useless because the City had met Chelsea twice this season.
“We have to undergo eight games to play. We could have won eight games and if Chelsea do not lose points then we can not win the title. So, the important thing is not to think about the other teams, but thinking about our own team, tidying, and won the next game, which is against Crystal Palace, “said Pellegrini.
“I’m usually trying to watch the matches involving teams we had to face in the future. We are not going to face Chelsea because we’ve met them twice. So, it is not the most important,” he added.
“I might be watching Manchester United against Liverpool because we still have against United. I repeat, I am not thinking about Chelsea,” said Pellegrini.
