VIDEO: Pellegrini says Manchester City “not thinking about Chelsea”


Manuel Pellegrini has brushed off suggestions that Manchester City are locked in a two-way battle for the Premier League title with Chelsea.

The Chilean boss has now guided City to nine-straight wins in all competitions, and on Boxing Day they easily dispatched West Bromwich Albion 3-1 — scoring three in the opening 34 minutes at a snowy Hawthorns — after watching Chelsea momentarily go six points clear at the top earlier on Friday, following their victory over West Ham.
