London: Manchester City football team manager Manuel Pellegrini has declared that his side`s win over Liverpool was worth six points and laid down a Premier League title marker.
City`s clinical striker force delivered them an emphatic 3-1 win over Brendan Rodgers` squad and though the victory came too early in the season to create any serious impression of title prospects, Stevan Jovetic `s superb two-goal display underlined his potential as a new attacking dimension after an injury-hit season last time out, The Independent reported.
Pellegrini insisted that Jovetic was very unlucky last season but they never had any doubt about this quality, and added that to start the season in this way after an unlucky new season is good.
Pellegrini also said that the kick that had forced Edin Dzeko to limp out of the game late in the second half against Liverpool was not serious, though it would be assessed later.
It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
