Manuel Pellegrini: Before 72 hours it is not good to play again


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says back-to-back matches in the English Premier League are difficult to manage.

Only days after beating West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, the Citizens will tomorrow be back in action as they host Burnley at the City of Manchester Stadium.

"I have watched some games that they have played and I think they are playing well," Pellegrini said.

"I watched their game against Tottenham away. They are an offensive team, they play with two strikers and I think they have good players. If you think it is an easy game, you can have great problems.

"So we hope we will play against Burnley the same way we play against any other team.

"This [close games] is very rare for me. Before 72 hours it is not good to play [again] but we know how it is here, in the Premier League.

"It is difficult for all the teams. The important thing is not to have an advantage for any one team."
