Manuel Pellegrini: I think the first motivation is always to win


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says it is not his philosophy to settle down for a draw.

The Citizens face Manchester United away from home on Sunday in what will be a battle for second place in the Premier League.

And the Chilean insists that the objective is to take all three points from Old Trafford.

"Never is to draw a good result," Pellegrini said.

"I understand we are not having the results that we need playing away - 2015 is not a good year for us - but before that we were the best team playing away.

"We have lost the last three [away] games, but the last two with two goals in set-pieces, against Burnley and Palace.

"We hope we continue keeping the good things we are doing because we are not a disaster, we're not a mess. We are doing a lot of things well.

"We must improve because we are not having the results we need but never in my way of thinking are we happy with a draw.

"I think the first motivation is always to win. After that motivation is [comes from] against whom you are going to [try to] win, being a derby against a strong team like Manchester United.

"They dominated the league for so many years but one time Sir Alex Ferguson said the neighbours are disturbing them a little bit more - so I say that's double motivation for us."
