Manuel Pellegrini: Manchester derby will not be a game to decide the title


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has rejected claims that Sunday's derby will be a title decider.

The Citizens lead the Premier League with the Red Devils just two points behind.

And although the Chilean admits that it's a typical six-points match, he says it's too early to call it a title decider.

"We hope to see a lot of goals, the most important thing is to try and win the game," Pellegrini told reporters.

"There are different ways to try to win, I think we have one, I hope for fans it's a good show and good game.

"I think that our team, if you remember last season, we had a lot of different ways to play.

"Last season we had the four strikers injured and we played with Milner and he scored two goals I think in two or three games and our team scored 15 goals without strikers.

"We have players with characteristics that can play different ways, and every one of them can score.

"The Premier League is difficult, every one of the 38 game you must play as a final and after that you can see which team does is best.

"At the moment we are top but it doesn't mean we'll do better than last season. It's important to try and avoid the same mistakes.

"It's a match of six points because you are playing the team that is behind you, but it will not be a game to decide the title.

"I think for the city it is always a special game. It's very important for both fans to try to win and to try to demonstrate who is the best in the city and of course we are involved in similar situations."
