Manuel Pellegrini on the Bayern game, says key strikers are fit to play


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says there is no extra pressure on his side ahead of tomorrow's Champions League game against Bayern Munich.

The Citizens lie bottom of their group following two poor results against CSKA Moscow but the Chilean insists that an analysis of their European campaign can only be made after the last game of Group E.

"I don't think there is an extra pressure," Pellegrini said.

"I think it is important for this club to continue in Europe because it is one of our targets to improve every year.

"Tomorrow we will see the team fighting until the end to continue in the Champions League and I hope we can do it.

"If we don't qualify we will analyse [why not], but we must play the game tomorrow and against Roma before drawing conclusions.

"Both of them [Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic] are in the squad list, they have no problems for tomorrow night. They have a small thing from the last game."
