Manuel Pellegrini: "I said some months ago, when I arrived here that I liked my teams to play in an attacking way, to try to score goals everywhere and the most amount we can.
"It is important to continue that way and it is important to continue improving in defending and the way the team is playing.
"I don't know if we are intimidating other teams or not, but it is about trust for our team and we know in every game that we normally score goals. That is very good for the confidence.
"We must finish December first, we have three more important games in the Premier League, but we are just halfway through the season.
"It is not just this period. We have four or five more important months. We must continue in the same way.
"It is always important to win every title and the final at Wembley is always a beautiful game.
"But we are not thinking about the final, we are thinking game from game.
"We must think about Fulham on Saturday and we will have to play a semi-final."
