Manuel Pellegrini eager to take three points against Chelsea


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says it is too early too call Sunday's game against Chelsea a title decider but says it is important to take all three points.

The Citizens were impressive in their opening game of the season away at West Bromwich Albion, easing past Tony Pulis' side by 3-0.

And they will be looking for more of the same when they host Jose Mourinho's men on Sunday afternoon.

We are not thinking about title in our second game but about winning our points at home," Pellegrini told reporters.

"We’re playing against champions, against one of the team that has chances to win the title, so to try to win the three points at home is very important.

"It is the same as Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham - all the big teams.

"[New signings?] I don't talk about rumours. We have a good squad at this moment but if we can improve it in a couple of positions it is better."
