Pellegrini Couldn't Believe It

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was bemused at how his side managed to lose 3-2 to Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Citizens came into the game off of a decent run over the last week where they smashed Manchester United 4-1 before crushing Wigan Athletic in the Capital One Cup.

They took the lead twice against Villa but quickfire goals from Leandro Bacuna and Andreas Weimann late on turned the result around as City left with nothing.

"Of course it is disappointing because I think we played very well in this game.

"From the beginning we had possession of the ball, we had the chances and we didn't have any risk in our own goals.

"It is unbelievable we didn't win this match but football has these things. The team that deserves to doesn't always win."

He continued, "I think the first goal was offside, the second goal was a free-kick and the third goal was unbelievable.

"Maybe drawing 2-2, at that moment, made the players go forward and we left a gap. They had the ball with the goalkeeper and then a chance to score in our goal.

"In five minutes we threw away all the work we did in the whole match.

"For the moment we haven't had a victory away.

"The other two games were very different, against Cardiff and Stoke.

"I thought the team played the way we need to play and the way I want to play here. I can't believe we didn't win."
