Manchester city bundled Chelsea out of FA cup with a 2-0 win. Following Mourinho’s mind games before the much-awaited clash, Pellegrini was eager to make his statement on the pitch, and he did so. Fielding a much competitive team, the Manchester city former Malaga coach threw every one in the pitch ahead of his champions league clash on Tuesday with Barcelona.
Manchester went ahead early in the game as they put the Chelsea defense under pressure and Jovetic put them ahead after a fine pass from Edin Dzeko in the 16th minute, minutes after the cross bar.
Yaya Toure constantly tested Peter Cech which he was up to task for but could not hold back the Manchester city attack as substitute Samir Nasri netted in the second goal just minutes after coming on.
Chelsea’s efforts of bringing in Torres, Salah and Oscar to strengthen the attack bore no fruits as the game ended with no shots on target for the blues.
Manchester city now book a quarterfinal spot of the FA cup as they wait for Barcelona at the Etihad on Tuesday.
