Manuel Pellegrini on the draw against Newcastle United and Vincent Kompany's return


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says last night's 1-1 draw against Newcastle United is a fair result.

The Citizens needed all three points to strengthen their position in the Top Four but could only manage a draw at St James' Park.

They are one point above Arsenal in third place with the Gunners in action tomorrow at home against West Bromwich Albion.

"We started winning the game, but we didn't have the control and we didn't play very well but we knew before the game that it was a very difficult match," Pellegrini said.

"After the goal, we didn't have so many chances, Newcastle didn't create too many either but the draw was a fair result in the 90 minutes.

"Playing three days after a big game at the end of the season makes it hard to be 100%. The team was different also because we made some changes and that's why the game was not the same.

"He [Vincent Kompany] played well, we didn't have much defensive work to do but he played the 90 minutes and I spoke with him and he felt okay."
