Pellegrini Happy at Halfway Point

Manuel Pellegrini on Sunday insisted that he is happy with Manchester City’s progression at the half-way stage of the season, despite dropping two points against Burnley on Sunday. "Of course it's a chance to have two points more but we finished the first round with 43 points - a good amount," the City coach said. "I think we have all the second round [to play] and we will be the best team."

Despite leading 2-0 at halftime on Sunday, City could only manage a draw at home to relegation-threatened Burnley, ending a nine-game winning run in the league. "Football has a lot of things that decide the score," Pellegrini said. "Maybe we play well in the first half but after that Burnley score a clear offside goal and a second one after a rebound. I'm not saying that we are unfortunate, I don't say that. I say the scores in football -- in just two balls can decide the score.” The Chilean added: "I think we play very well in the first half, in the second half after they scored the goal maybe they grew and we couldn't keep the goal advantage.”
