Manuel Pellegrini confirms: Champions League is more important than the FA Cup


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says he faces a selection headache ahead of Sunday's FA Cup game against Chelsea.

The Chilean has a number of key players out injured and is ready to give priority to Wednesday's Champions League game away at Dynamo Kiev.

"The priority is always the next game, but we must make an exception because of many injuries," Pellegrini is quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"We have just 13 players available to play and have to play the Champions League on Wednesday. We'll see the best team we can play on Sunday.

"I always try to play with a strong team in every competition. They are all important but we must prioritise the Champions League.

"The FA is more difficult - you must start postponing games to get there as it's at weekends.

"Something is not correct with the cup - if you continue the final, you have to postpone three Premier League games and then fit them in later.

"You don't have time to play those games if you continue in Europe too."
