Pellegrini wary of Man City being named favourites for League Cup final

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is looking to win his first silverware as City boss when his side face Sunderland in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley on Sunday. "I will be very happy if we achieve it because I think it reflects all your hard work from the year," says Pellegrini.

"I think we have played very well in the competition because we won all our games, scored 19 goals and conceded just one. I think it is very important to win the cup."

City are favourites, but Pellegrini adds:" It is always dangerous to play against any team. Sunderland also have a lot of motivation to win, exactly the same as we do. Maybe we are the favourites but we cannot forget that Sunderland eliminated Chelsea and Manchester United, big teams. They are defiant. I am sure it will be a very close game."
