Manchester City 5-0 Fulham

Pellegrini reacts:

“It was a complete performance because again we kept a clean sheet and that’s very important,” the 60-year old smiled.

“In the last part of the season, we must be a very balanced team, not only scoring five goals but keeping it tight also.

“We made some changes towards the end of the game, thinking about what we must do on Tuesday against Manchester United but before the match we were only thinking about this one.

“We had to be professional as Fulham defend very well usually, so when they score one goal it’s very difficult to get back into the game.

“It was more difficult for Fulham with ten players but before the player was sent off, we had scored a goal and were looking good.”

“I don’t think it’s just between City and Chelsea – we must see what Liverpool are doing every week,” he declared.

“Maybe Arsenal had a bad game today but they’re still only seven points behind Chelsea – I think all four teams have the same chance to win the title.

“There’s a lot of points left to decide the title for all of the teams.

“Maybe in the last month we are not scoring so many goals, but we were always creating chances. I hope we continue.

“Winning is always a good preparation for the next match. The derby is a special match so tomorrow we must try to forget about today and start thinking about Old Trafford.”
