Manuel Pellegrini: On the positive side we are still in all four competitions


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he is concerned about the fitness level of his players.

The Citizens looked out of sorts as they lost their fourth Premier League game of the season after going down to Stoke City in Saturday's early kick-off.

And the Chilean says the focus is now on recovering injured players as soon as possible.

"On the positive side we are still in all four competitions," Pellegrini said.

"But today we didn't have the legs to defend as we needed to or attack in the way we liked and we didn't create many chances.

"We have had to play the same 12 or 15 players for most of the season, but the fault is the whole team's because we defend as a team and we attack as a team and we didn't do either well today.

"I'm worried by the first 20 minutes of the game against Stoke and I'm worried going forward about the way we played the ball in the opposition box.

"We don't have a priority to get any one player back in the team in particular – we have five or six key injuries and I don't think we will have any of them back this week."
