Manuel Pellegrini opted to blame his Manchester City defence as opposed for the officials following seeing his side beaten 4-1 by Tottenham.
Kevin De Bruyne gave Manchester City the lead after 25 minutes, but a target on the stroke of half-time by Eric Dier precipitated strikes from Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane and Erik Lamela in the second period as City succumbed to their third defeat in four games.
Too as De Bruyne’s opener, Spurs’ initially three goals really should maybe all happen to be ruled out for offside, but Pellegrini opted to blame his error-strewn defence rather than the officials.
“We didn’t play very properly within the very first half against West Ham, or inside the second half right here,” he told BT Sport. “I do not desire to discuss the targets since it is a error, the referee could make it.
“We ought to continue working, to continue playing as we did in the initial 45 minutes. We will have to play each and every game as a final in the future.
“In the second half it was two set-pieces, a single decides the game, but just after that they played very effectively,” he added. “We defended some balls extremely badly. Two set-pieces, two targets.”
Beginning the game in the number 10 part in location of David Silva, Yaya Toure impressed prior to becoming taken off after 56 minutes. Pellegrini added: “There was an issue with his hamstring, he couldn’t train through the week.”
