Manchester City 0-1 Stoke

Pellegrini reacts:

“It is always disappointing to lose three points here at home. It was very important for our team to try and win the nine points before the international break, and it is not good to finish with a defeat. But these games always happen once a year and today it happened to our team.

“I don’t agree we were casual. I think we were very patient, we tried to create space, and Stoke defended very well. We didn’t play very well creatively and it was a bad day.

“The team will continue working in the same way as we do now. I don’t talk about the referee. All of you know it was a clear penalty but it doesn’t matter.  I don’t want to analyse the game in one minute, it was just one play in 90 minutes. ”

“It is important to be patient in attack, but it is more important not to concede because when they defend strongly behind the ball at 0-0 you can imagine what happens if they are winning 1-0.”
