The Citizens were beaten 4-2 by Louis van Gaal's side at Old Trafford and Manuel Pellegrini says the most important thing so far is for his team to keep fighting until the end of the campaign.

The Red Devils ended their recent bad run against Manchester City as they came from a goal down to seal the win over the Premier League champions at Old Trafford.

City have now lost six in eight matches and Pellegrini, who didn’t want to speak about his future at the Etihad, said he wants to finish the season as high as they can.

"My future is not the most important thing about what happened today," he told Sky Sports.

"I'll continue working. We have to play six more games to try to finish as high as we can and, for me, that's the only thing that's important.

"United played very well after the first 20 minutes in which we played very well. We scored a goal and had two or three more clear chances to score but we didn't and they started growing.

"We didn't continue playing the way we started the first 20 minutes and we lost the marks, we couldn't continue playing against a very tough Manchester United.

"Their equaliser was special play because it was a clearance from their goalkeeper, Pablo (Zabaleta) slipped and they scored. From that moment, they grew and started playing better."
