City Boss Shrugs Of Striker Problem

He has treasures beyond his wildest dream, with three of the best strikers in world football, how does "three go into two"?

Manuel Pellegrini: "It's an important amount of goals.

"I repeat when I arrived here it was important to try and win a trophy but in the way this team must play and it's important for the fans to come here and know that we are going to try and score the most amount of goals we can.

"We continue playing a style of football that is very important. Not to score just one goal and try to keep the ball and not give possession to the other team.

"It's more easy to go backwards with 10 players and try to counter attack with two or three players but it's not my philosophy, it's not the philosophy that this club wants to play.

"We continue to try and play during 90-95 minutes every game, independent of the score we try to be a balanced team, an attractive team.

"We may have some selection dilemmas to consider.

"For me that's not a problem.

"It's a problem when you don't have the players to choose.

"Alvaro and Edin Dzeko are in a very good moment, it's very important for the team that Sergio comes back today and he scores in this game. We have so many games in the future we have no problem with the three."
