Manuel Pellegrini: We dominated and they had just one shot on our goal


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his side deserved to take all three points from Sunday's game at Aston Villa.

The Citizens registered their second draw of the season as they failed to break the Aston Villa defence at Villa Park.

They kept their first place in the table after Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur shared a goalless draw at the Emirates.

"We're disappointed because I think we did enough to we the game," Pellegrini told reporters after the draw.

"We dominated and they had just one shot on our goal. We had three of four very clear chances to score and we didn't, but we did enough to win.

"I think Aston Villa defended very well.

"They had nine out of ten often in their box. We tried to make a breakthrough. Two or three times we were very unlucky.

"I said before that it was going to be a difficult game. They have a new manager and a lot of motivation. They changed their system.

"We had clear chances, but didn't take them and this happens in football.

"We lost a striker [Wilfried Bony] and that was one more thing unfortunate to happen but we had to find a way to work without him.

"I always say if you can't win, don't lose. Nine out of ten of games like this you may lose on the counter attack. We concentrated and didn't allow Aston Villa any chances."
