Man City boss Pellegrini: We've silenced doubters

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is delighted to be top of the table.

Pellegrini was sure City would recover from their poor start to the campaign.

"We are in a good moment," said Pellegrini after victory over Crystal Palace.

"Maybe nobody believed one or two months ago we can continue in Champions League and be involved in the fight for the title but we always trust in what we do and the way we work every day and that is why I am so happy the squad demonstrates why we won the title last year.

"You do not win the title in December but it is a key month.

"If you want to be involved and have a chance to win the title, you must be as near as you can be to the lead of the table."
