Manchester – Manchester City must give great attention to the line of defense if it wants to compete in the race for the title next season. Manuel Pellegrini admitted back line so weak point the Citizens.
When winning the Premier League last season City successfully completed the competition by making 102 goals and conceded 37 times. While this season with four games remaining, they had to make 70 goals and conceded 36 times.
Although the number of tally plummeted, Pellegrini assess sharpness up front if not the source of problems that make the City lagged far from Chelsea. In fact, the City is still the most prolific team in the Premier League this season.
Is a defense that is considered to be the largest City homework. Vincent Kompany performed poorly this season with recurring injuries came and performance is far from consistent. While Eliaquim Mangala also still failing to meet great expectations given to him after carried off with expensive from Porto last summer.
“It’s hard to say we are less keen because we are a team of the most fertile in the Premier League. Compared to last year we were a little more to make a goal, but it is not easy to score more than 100 goals in the Premier League. You can not do that every season, you have to try it but you do not can always do it, “Pellegrini said in a press conference.
“We’ll see what we need, it is important to create a balance. We have to develop a number of goals related to our goal next season, not just scoring goals,” continued the manager at Reuters.
