Manuel Pellegrini delighted with Manchester City display

Manuel Pellegrini says that Jussi Jaaskelainen prevented Manchester City from winning by more than a 3-1 margin against West Ham United this evening.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that Jussi Jaaskelainen saved West Ham United from a drubbing at Upton Park this evening.

The Chilean notched up his first win away from home in the Premier League, with Sergio Aguero scoring a brace before David Silva killed the game off 10 minutes before time.

"Winning the game was the most important thing for us," the 60-year-old told BBC Sport. "We played very well, and the best player for West Ham was their goalkeeper.

"Before we started the game, Chelsea and Arsenal won. We had to take the maximum. David Silva and Sergio Aguero are very important players. Seeing them playing that way is very important for the whole team.

"This team should always play in attacking way because of the players we have. We were absolutely sure playing the way we were, we would win away. We lost against Cardiff and Aston Villa, but football is like that."

The result takes City up to fourth in the Premier League, three points behind leaders Arsenal.
