Pellegrini Urges City For Titles

Manuel Pellegrini challenged his Manchester City stars to set their sights on a quadruple after they swept into the League Cup final in emphatic fashion.
Pellegrini’s side showed no mercy as two goals from Alvaro Negredo and a Sergio Aguero strike crushed West Ham 3-0 in the League Cup semi-final second leg at Upton Park on Tuesday.
The ruthless display in east London sealed a 9-0 aggregate triumph that was the largest semi-final margin of victory in the history of the competition.
City can now look forward to a Wembley showdown against Manchester United or Sunderland on 2 March, which gives Pellegrini a chance to secure the first trophy since he arrived as Roberto Mancini’s replacement in the close-season.
The League Cup remains very much fourth priority on Pellegrini’s to-do list however, and the Chilean believes success in the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FA Cup is also still a distinct possibility if City can maintain their current free-scoring form.
“I’m very proud of the team. We arrived in the final winning the five games with 19 goals scored, with just one goal conceded”, Pellegrini said.
“Always a final at Wembley is a very important final and I’m very proud of the team that we are still in four competitions.
“Now we’ve finished with the League Cup until March. It’s very important to continue in the FA Cup, so we must win against Watford.
