Pellegrini Bemoans Poor Finishing

Despite his side running out 4-2 winners over Cardiff City in an English Premier League match on Saturday, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has bemoaned his side’s poor finishing in front of goal.

The Sky Blues have proved to be deadly in front of goal this season, racking up an impressive 63 goals in 22 league games, but Pellegrini feels his side should have made more of their 24 shots on goal against Cardiff.

“I don't think the scoreline reflects the match,” said Pellegrini.

“We did fantastically first half. We had at least four great chances to score, but we only went in at 2-1.

“In the second half, Cardiff had some good shots on goal and scored at the end from the corner. Really, it was a game where we missed so many chances - but the team played very well in the first half.”

Still, despite his disappointment in their finishing on Saturday, Pellegrini was pleased with his side’s goal tally overall this season which has surpassed the 100 goal mark and currently resides on 103 in all competitions thus far.

“To score 103 goals at this moment of the season reflects what the team wants,” added Pellegrini.

“We have a clear style of play and we hope to continue that way in the future.”

The three points against Cardiff keeps City in second place on the log and on the heels of league leaders Arsenal, only one point adrift of the Gunners.
