Manuel Pellegrini: I don't think about Chelsea


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says the focus is entirely on how his team performs after the 3-0 home win against Crystal Palace.

The Citizens produced an impressive comeback in the English Premier League to completely annihilate Chelsea's lead at the top with the Blues set to face a very tricky away game against Stoke City on Monday.

But the Chilean insists he is not interested in how other teams perform.

"I don't think about Chelsea," Pellegrini said.

"The only important thing for our team was to win three more points and continuing playing in the way we are doing so far and believing every day that we can be involved in the fight for the title.

"December is a key month, not the month that you win the title but you play so many games that if you want to be involved in the fight for the title you must be as near as you can to the head of the table.

"We are in a good moment and no one believed a few months ago that we could continue in the Champions League and be able to fight for the title but we always trusted in what we do.

"I am so happy that once again this squad demonstrated why we won the title last year."
