Manuel Pellegrini on the win, the snow and upcoming fixtures


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says his side's objective is to take as many points as possible from their upcoming fixtures.

The Citizens produced a brilliant display of football in the first half against West Bromwich Albion, scoring three goals on their way to an important away win which allowed them to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

"It was a very important win because it's not easy to play on Boxing Day," Pellegrini told Sky Sports.

"We have three games and nine points [to play for] in just a week so it is tough, but good to start this week with a win against a good team like West Brom.

"We're doing well, and we have changed the style of play to allow more midfielders to get into the box and we are creating space and using it in the right moments.

"It was difficult to play because of the snow, but it is difficult to play with the fast pace and we tried to keep it [at 3-0] but they scored.

"We are just trying to keep winning, we are not thinking about Chelsea. It is not just us and Chelsea, there are other teams there too like Manchester United."
