Manuel Pellegrini: I don't feel any pressure inside the club or outside


Manager Manuel Pellegrini says he is not under pressure despite Manchester City's recent dip in form.

City face Stoke City on Wednesday night and the Chilean says his team's objective is to take all three points from the Britannia Stadium.

The Citizens desperately need to bounce back after last Saturday's shocking result at home against Hull City as a defeat could see leaders Chelsea open a ten-point gap at the top of the Premier League.

"They are a very good team, not only at this moment," Pellegrini said during Tuesday's press conference.

"They are always a very difficult team, especially playing at the Britannia.

"But we are going to go as we always do when we play away, to try and win the three points from the first minute.

"I never feel pressure, I have repeated the same answer for the same question for the last two years,

"The only pressure is my own pressure that I make myself when I don't feel the team is playing well.

"I think we are in a normal position, we are involved in the Champions League. If we win on Wednesday we will have just two points less than [the same stage] last season.

"We have a lot of things to think about, more important than pressure. I don't feel any pressure inside the club or outside."
