Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to win over fans with attractive football rather than frightening the opposition into submission. Pellegrini's first competitive game in England was impressive as City overran Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium with a convincing 4-0 victory, and on Sunday they meet newly promoted Cardiff in South Wales.

Pellegrini said: "I don't think they are going to fear us. It is very important for us to play the way we played.

"What happens with the other teams, if they fear us or not, I don't think from one match we can have an important conclusion.

"The important thing is that we start winning in our stadium. The second important thing is we win the way I want this team to play. What happens in the future we will see."
