Manuel Pellegrini: It was important to end the six away games without a win


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his side deserved to take all three points against Watford.

The Citizens needed two late goals from Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero to finally get back on winning terms away from home.

And the Chilean was delighted with the scoreline at the end of the game.

"This team has a lot of character," Pellegrini told Sky Sports.

"We never give up. We continued trying to score, always thinking we are able to score.

"We were losing 1-0 and had to take a risk. A draw was not good – we needed three points. It was a very close, tough game for both teams.

"Watford are in a good moment. But I think we deserved to win – more shots, shots on target and possession.

"Sergio Aguero's goal is very important. I think he made a lot of better movement than the last games.

"We are not sending messages. It was important to end the six away games without a win. We want to go game by game."
