Man City win with no flair

Manchester City 2-0 Hull City

Coach Pellegrini reacts:

“First of all, the most important thing was the points, in pre-season we tried to work on different things, we experimented – when we play in the Premier League, we think more about the three points, so I am very pleased to win.

“We must improve though, we had many difficulties in the first-half.

“The defeat against Cardiff could be one of the things that affected us, in the first-half we were without trust but I think the other important thing after the three points is the defence – again at home we have a clean sheet – that’s very pleasing.”

“Hull is a good team, I was concerned [that we failed to break them down in the first-half] but 2-0 is a good scoreline – we can’t win every game four or five nil, that’s a good thing about the Premier League,

Maybe one day if we are very clever in the last 25 minutes we can see scorelines like that again but I never expected that every game would be like the Newcastle game.”

“During August, we played just three matches at weekends but after the international break we have to play eight matches every month, so everyone who has a good performance has a chance to start.”
