Better team did not win match - Pellegrini

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says injuries cost his side as they fell to their first home defeat in the league this season, a 1-0 defeat by Chelsea.

Without the likes of Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri, City fell behind to a 32nd-minute strike from Branslav Ivanovic and were unable to find an equaliser.

Despite defeat, Pellegrini maintains the better team did not win the match. His team stay second in the table, two points behind leaders Arsenal, with Chelsea now level on points with City.
