Pellegrini: "We are absolutely ready. We have had a very good pre-season, working for about 40 days with all the players, knowing each other more.
"I think we are in very good shape to start the Premier League.
"We had a programme for the whole pre-season. Each week we made all the work we need.
"We played seven friendly matches with different starting elevens so most of them had an average of minutes very similar (to each other)."
"We have four important strikers for the whole season.
"I do not worry who plays tomorrow, next Monday or next Sunday.
"We have four strikers because I think we need four strikers.
"We will see each week who is the best for each match."
