Manuel Pellegrini says that his Manchester City team need to defend better after their 4-2 victory against Viktoria Plzen.

Manuel Pellegrini has declared that he is "satisfied" after Manchester City beat Viktoria Plzen 4-2 in the Champions League.

City took the lead twice either side of half time, but Plzen fought hard and pegged back their opponents.

However, two late goals from Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko secured the win, but Pellegrini said after the match that his team must learn how to balance attack with defence.

"I'm satisfied because we won the game but we didn't play well, we didn't play with intensity," Pellegrini told the club's official website.

"I think that we can attack and we can score four goals without giving the other team so many chances. One of the most important things to being an attacking team is knowing how to defend and I think on that front, we did very bad tonight."

City play Bayern Munich in their final group match.
