Manchester City returned to winning ways after a 7-0 win over Norwich at the Etihad stadium. They had lost in the Premier league match against Chelsea in the final minute. Another defeat would have been a disaster for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, but they returned to form with this impressive win. Pellegrini will now be looking to translate this form into away from home because this is where City have been struggling this season. They will be taking on CSKA Moscow in the Champions league in midweek. Pellegrini has said that it is important that his players do not get carried away after this impressive win.
City have the chance to seal qualification into the last 16 stage of the Champions league but they need to win their match against CSKA Moscow. After the defeat against Chelsea, City have now won two matches in a row starting with the League Cup win over Newcastle. Pellegrini has once again stated that his team did not deserve to lose against Chelsea. City committed a last minute error to allow Fernando Torres score a goal. This meant that City have fallen several points behind Arsenal even at this early stage in the season.
“We were very unhappy when we lost against Chelsea, but we didn’t deserve to lose that match, we dominated possession, so we continued playing the same way. We won against Newcastle in the Cup in midweek and I thought today we had a really good match. Norwich did not have a chance to score, we scored seven and could have scored more,” said Pellegrini after the Norwich encounter. City have tough encounters in the upcoming matches including opponents like Spurs and West Brom. Manuel Pellegrini would be happy to have returned to form at just the right stage in the season.
