Manuel Pellegrini says that Manchester City's away form has become a cause for concern following today's defeat at Sunderland.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that his team's away form has become cause for concern following today's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.

The Citizens have won just one of their six matches on the road this season, while suffering defeats at Cardiff City, Aston Villa and Chelsea.

"I am concerned because we are losing too many points away and, of course, that's very difficult if you don't win away to try to fight for the Premier League," he told Sky Sports News.

"But I don't think we are playing badly, so we must have a reaction, we must improve to make sure we are going to win."

City are eighth in the Premier League, six points off leaders Arsenal.
