Manuel Pellegrini: It was important to return to victory


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini admits the three points against West Bromwich Albion were much-needed after a set of disappointing results.

With Chelsea in action on Sunday away at Hull City, the Citizens closed the gap at the top of the table to just three points but the Blues have two games in hand.

And the Chilean says his side will continue to fight as long as there is mathematical hope to win the title.

"We have lost the last two games in different competitions, so it was important to return to victory," Pellegrini said.

"We were very concentrated in defending because Tony Pulis teams defend very well and it is not difficult for them to make important counter attacks when they have very fast players.

"We didn't allow them to have any chances except from one corner and we continued until the end trying to score more goals.

"We have to play eight games more, we can win the eight games and if Chelsea don't drop points we cannot win the title. So the important thing is not to think about other teams, to think about our team, improve and win the next game which is Crystal Palace.

"I don't think that our fans don't believe we can do it, the important thing is to demonstrate playing the way we did today that we will try to win."
