Pellegrini claims 2015 PL winners, Chelsea, lacked ‘great panache’ displayed by Man City last season

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has claimed that the newly crowned Premier League champions Chelsea lacked the attacking flair or goals that his side demonstrated last season.

Chelsea won the title for the first time since 2010 after claiming a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. Mourinho, who has bagged his third league title with the club, reached the milestone with three games to spare.

Pellegrini said that it is important for the fans to play attractive football. The Chilean manager said that although they played exactly the same that Chelsea did this year, his side scored 158 goals last year, the BBC reported.

City, meanwhile, effectively secured their Champions League spot with a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, thanks to Sergio Aguero’s first-half strike.

Pellegrini insisted that he would not turn away from his aggressive approach to the game. He said that his team continues as the most scoring team and believes that aspect is equally pertinent to continue winning.

City have so far scored 71 goals this season, two goals more than league winners Chelsea.
