Manuel Pellegrini: I am satisfied with a point but I don't like to play in this way


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was happy with the point but less with the way his side played against Manchester United.

The Citizens went back to the top of the table on goal average after a dull goalless draw at Old Trafford.

But the Chilean says his team prefers to be aggressive and on the attack after a hard-fought draw against Louis van Gaal's men.

"The first half we played better, the same level as United," Pellegrini said.

"In the second half we started to lose so many balls, we lost possession of the ball. In that case it's important to concentrate on defending and not to allow them to create chances, and in that sense we did it well.

"We worked well, United had possession but they didn't have too many chances. They broke through, they also hit the bar and had a chance at the near post when Joe saved but other than that it was just possession.

"I am satisfied with a point but I don't like to play in this way. That's way I say it's easy to play that way. It's important to have a point here, another point in the table, but I don't think it's the way the team must play.

"It's not a bad day.

"It's always difficult to play here at United's stadium, it's difficult for every team. If we drew at home maybe I wouldn't be happy, but in this moment it's a good point, we concentrated well and defended well. Maybe a lot of media criticise that but we can do it also.

"If we want to defend we can defend. We don't like to, we like to be an attacking team."
