Pellegrini: City deserved the win.

Manchester city boss Manuel Pellegrini has said his side deserved their victory over Norwich in the Premier League.

Manchester city defeated Norwich 2-1 with a penalty from Yaya Toure in a dramatic encounter that City dug deep for according to manager.

"I think we deserved to win the game," he said, reports "We started from the beginning to try and score.

"Norwich played very well because they defended very well with 11 players near their box.

"It was very difficult for us to create space but we created three or four chances that we missed.

"Finally, we opened the scoring with a beautiful goal from Nicolas Otamendi.

"Unfortunately, they drew level with a very unlucky goal but in the last ten minutes, the team demonstrated its personality and character.

"We believe in what we can do and we went on to score what was a clear penalty and then miss another."

Manchester city remain at the top, with goals seperating them from second placed Arsenal.
