Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has said his team will carry on scoring goals after their 5-0 thrashing of Blackburn in the FA Cup last night, Sky Sports reports.
The ‘Citizens’ have now scored an amazing 99 goals this year and are not expected to release their feet off the gas anytime soon.
In last night’s fixture Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko grabbed two each, and only 50 seconds on his return from injury Sergio Aguero scored another.
The Blue half of Manchester have struck 63 goals at the Etihad and are already on the course of breaking several goal-scoring records this season.
Pellegrini insists he will continue playing in the same manner in the pursuit of trophies.
“It’s an important amount of goals,” he said.
“I repeat when I arrived here it was important to try and win a trophy but in the way this team must play and it’s important for the fans to come here and know that we are going to try and score the most amount of goals we can.
The former Malaga boss could have taken it easy when three goals up, but decided to field free-scoring striker Sergio Aguero instead.
“We continue playing a style of football that is very important. Not to score just one goal and try to keep the ball and not give possession to the other team.
“It’s more easy to go backwards with 10 players and try to counter-attack with two or three players but it’s not my philosophy, it’s not the philosophy that this club wants to play.
“We continue to try and play during 90-95 minutes every game, independent of the score we try to be a balanced team, an attractive team.”
Manchester City will hope to continue their scoring streak against Cardiff in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
