Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has refused to blame his club’s slip-ups this season on their quest for the coveted quadruple, Sky Sports reports.

City have already won the Capital One Cup, reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and reached the knockout round of the Champions League but have fallen short in the Premier League race.

Once favourites for the title, the Sky Blues have slipped up and allowed Liverpool to have a strong hand on the trophy, with the Reds not playing in European competition this season.

"I think it was good to be in the four competitions for so long,” said the Chilean.

"We can't now complain about being in them. I said when I started the season that the four competitions were important.

"We had to play in every game to try to win. We were the team which continued longest in all of them.

"We won one and now we finish the Premier League by playing in these last games and we'll see what happens."

Liverpool on the other hand only played a total of five domestic cup competition matches and now have a strong lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Despite their lack of European competition this year, the Reds have already secured their place in next season’s Champions League and will have to face the same trial of facing four competitions in one season next year.
