Newcastle United 0-2 Manchester City

Coach Pellegrini reacts:

“It was very important for us to start winning this season.

“We played with two H’s: we were humble and were hungry – we need both if we want to keep winning titles.

“If we want to keep winning titles, if we want to improve on what we did last year; the attitude is so important from the start until the end.

“It’s normal that the guys who were at the World Cup are tired,” he surmised, “That’s why it was so important that we had the attitude to play the way we played without the ball – running hard to get it back.

“At the moment we have players who can’t play 90 minutes but we were playing against a strong team like Newcastle in a tough place to go and the first clear chance they had was after 88 minutes.

“I’m very proud that we managed to win this game. First games can be tough but we did it again and I want to thank our fans because I thought they were brilliant today, once again.

“We have our three points from the first game – next week is a big game against Liverpool and we have to prepare well and try to win again.”
