Manuel Pellegrini expects Manchester City response

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is confident that his players will perform well when they face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that he expects a response from his players when they face Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Blues, who welcome the defending champions to the Etihad Stadium in Group D, were beaten 3-2 at Aston Villa in the Premier League on the weekend.

Despite that loss, Pellegrini insists that his side will bounce back positively against Bayern.

"Of course, I always expect a big response from the players," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

"We respect the Champions League very well and it is very important for us to continue against the most difficult team in the group. I am sure we will see a very high performance."

City began this season's Champions League campaign with a 3-0 win against Viktoria Plzen two weeks ago.
