Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has conceded that his players’ performance eased off in the closing stages of their win at West Bromwich Albion, Sky Sports has reported.

The visitors led 3-0 thanks to Sergtio Aguero’s early strike and a double from midfielder Yaya Toure, but then allowed West Brom to score twice late on to take some gloss off the scoreline. Despite that, Man City managed to hold on for only their second Premier League away win of the season, keeping them six points behind leaders Arsenal.


After the game, Pellegrini said: "It was not as close a game as the scoreline says. But perhaps all of us were thinking about the next game. We didn't plan to go more defensive but I think the game was more easy than we'd thought so we became more relaxed in the final minutes.


"They scored two goals in the last four minutes and so the scoreline says 3-2 but I think we had more of an advantage than that."


The game also saw the return of captain Vincent Kompany to the Man City starting line-up after two months out, and Pellegrini added: "He's a very important player for us. He's our captain. He played with no problem and we gave him the 90 minutes."
