MOST COMMENTED

Manchester City was left stunned after a “careless and avoidable” defeat at the hands of Aston Villa, which twice came-from-behind to win 3-2 at Villa Park on Saturday, the Guardian reported. Coach Manuel Pellegrini will have been furious at the manner in which his team conceded three goals to Paul Lambert’s men, especially considering the absence of top strikers Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor. After the game, reporters asked Pellegrini what kind of impact the loss would have on Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League visit from Bayern Munich, the current European champion.

"I don't think this result will have an impact [against Bayern]," Pellegrini said. "We know it is a different competition, we know that we must turn the page and think about the Champions League. I repeat I think that the team played a good match today but we have to revise a lot of things.”

The Chilean noted that Villa’s first and third goals were down to poor defending. “For me the most important things are the three goals that Aston Villa scored. Especially the first and third goal, the second goal was a good free-kick. We will have to defend better, not only on Wednesday."
