Pellegrini: "I'm happy with what we did today"

Manuel Pellegrini addressed the media after the game: "I'm really happy with what we did today. We need to keep improving, finish our plays with more calm and accuracy and try not to concede goals. We have scored 11 goals in four games, which is a lot, but in the other three we scored none. We have to improve in defense and in attack, the idea is clear. We have to focus on beating the next rival playing like we did today."
