Manuel Pellegrini: I will not explain the starting eleven


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his team's defeat against Liverpool has nothing to do with individual players.

The Citizens suffered a humiliating 4-1 home defeat on Saturday afternoon to surrender the first place in the Premier League.

And the Chilean says his side's he performance was unbelievably bad.

"The performance was unbelievable," Pellegrini told reporters.

"We have difficulty in understanding why we played so badly as a complete team. Defending, attacking, possession - I've never seen this team play like we did tonight.

"I will not explain the starting 11. If I had to choose again I would do the same. It's not one name or another name. It was a complete disaster - the whole team.

"I was not happy with performance of 11 players, not only Yaya and Navas. We tried another system, we tried to press high but it was the exactly the same, it was not our night.

"We didn't create chances we concede four goals we could have conceded three or four more. It's difficult to understand.

"We need to turn the page as soon as we can. This performance is not normal, we all must think what will happen in the future, we have an important game on Wednesday, sometimes it happens in football to play like this."
