We Have To Stay Creative

Manchester City have a busy schedule ahead of them as they compete on numerous fronts in both Europe and domestically, but despite the heavy work load manager Manuel Pellegrini feels his side can continue to be successful if they play creative football.

City have certainly been the most attacking team in the English Premier League with 57 goals in their 20 games and Pellegrini puts it down to the creative conscience of his players and their abilities.

Pellegrini’s side is heading into their weekend league fixture against Newcastle on Sunday in fine form following an emphatic 6-0 win over West Ham in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semifinal and the manager admits his team is playing well.

However, with City competing for the league title [placed second, only appoint behind league leaders Arsenal] and in the FA Cup and the Champions League, Pellegrini says it is important his side remain consistent.

 “We are playing very well at the moment, but we are just in the middle of the season,” said Pellegrini.

“So that makes it very important for us to finish the season in the same way.

“We have very important games coming up in the next few days and it will be a very close fight until the end of the season with another four or five clubs involved.

“Our game against Blackburn Rovers is one we must win otherwise we are out of the cup, although maybe in the Capital One Cup we took a big step towards the final.

“After February we start the Champions League again so it's very important for us to continue playing in the creative way we have been.

“The players like to play as a creative team and not as a destroying team who just score one goal and try to defend it. We try to work all week like that before playing the same way in the match at the weekend.

“I hope we can still get better as it is very important to win titles, but also not to make mistakes in vital games which is why every game is a test for all of us.

“It doesn't matter who we play, what is important is the whole squad can continue to play the same way no matter who is in the team.”
