Manuel Pellegrini happy with win and clean sheet


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was delighted with his side's performance after an easy 3-0 away win against West Bromwich Albion.

The Citizens were in confident mood throughout as they took the lead in the 9th minute through Yaya Toure.

The Ivorian added a second minutes later with Vincent Kompany completing the scoreline with a header mid-way through the second half.

Early days of course, but with three goals scored and none conceded, City lead the Premier League table ahead of next week's clash against Chelsea.

"It is very important to start the season with a win and to win in the way we did - scoring goals and playing as a very consistent team without giving West Brom any real chances to score - is pleasing," he told reporters.

"I am always pleased when my team score. I like attacking football and I like to see good players attack well. For the first 30 minutes, we played very well.

"Even after you score goals, it is important to continue to play attacking football - but not with an unbalanced team. For me, it was also important to keep a clean sheet.

"I enjoy seeing technical players play well. David [Silva] really played well - especially in the first-half. It was an unbelievable performance. He did not make any mistakes.

"I also think we will see the Yaya [Toure] of one season ago - not last season when he had many problems.

"All of our technical players played very well."
