Pellegrini must act fast to stop Man City regression after Liverpool defeat

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini commends Liverpool for their performance and insists that his side must focus on their next match.

Abraham Lincoln's famous quote -- "I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday" -- seems appropriate to Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini after Liverpool's 2-1 victory over City on Sunday struck a blow to their title ambitions.

Pellegrini, who brought such barnstorming football to the Etihad last season, seems to have lost himself in a narrow streak of tactical stubbornness. In the process, he may also be losing crucial backing among City's bedrock support.

Vincent Kompany, Samir Nasri not good enough in Man City's Anfield loss

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down an impressive result for Liverpool and a blow for City's title aspirations.
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Coutinho goal (75') Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Edin Dzeko goal (26') Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jordan Henderson goal (11') Liverpool 1-0 Manchester City

One of these two teams played football for two hours in Turkey on Thursday night. Judging by the performance, you'd have said that it was Manchester City who were fatigued from a long flight that arrived home at 6 a.m. on Friday ... but you'd be wrong.

Instead, Manuel Pellegrini's side simply failed to show up and all of the momentum gained from the win against Newcastle that closed the gap to Chelsea to five points has somewhat dissipated a week later. The passion, calmness, pride, dynamic...

Manchester City's problems are caused by their players not tactics

The ESPN FC team explain how Liverpool were able to exploit Manchester City's weaknesses on Sunday and agree Manuel Pellegrini's days as City manager may be numbered.

After a week where Manchester City were convincingly defeated by both Barcelona and Liverpool, with 2-1 losses flattering the English champions on both occasions, manager Manuel Pellegrini's tactics inevitably came under fire.

For both contests, his 4-4-2 formation was outplayed in midfield and exposed between the lines, leading to many questions about whether the Chilean has the tactical nous necessary to get results against the biggest sides.

The 4-4-2 itself isn't necessarily a problem, although...

Man City must rebound and regain home dominance for Leicester's visit

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley pinpoints Manuel Pellegrini's tactics and inability to make effective changes to the lineup as reasons for Manchester City's recent struggles. Also, see why Craig wasn't a fan of Dortmund's 'Batman and Robin' celebration.
The ESPN FC team explain how Liverpool were able to exploit Manchester City's weaknesses on Sunday and agree Manuel Pellegrini's days as City manager may be numbered.

In years gone by, teams battling for survival in the Premier League would not have relished a journey to the Etihad Stadium. In the last few campaigns, it would have been seen as an "anything we can get is a bonus" game, with Manchester City likely to win, occasionally without really getting out of second gear.

That Leicester, a team performing below what many expected from them after a solid title win in the Championship in 2014, will fancy their chances of doing a job on Manuel Pellegrini's...

The men who could replace Manuel Pellegrini as Manchester City boss

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley pinpoints Manuel Pellegrini's tactics and inability to make effective changes to the lineup as reasons for Manchester City's recent struggles. Also, see why Craig wasn't a fan of Dortmund's 'Batman and Robin' celebration.

Twinned 2-1 defeats to Barcelona and Liverpool in which a 4-4-2 formation proved utterly unfit for the purpose has made speculation rife about the future of Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini. That may seem a little premature, considering City could still beat Barca in the second leg of their Champions League tie and may even collect a second successive Premier League title.

However, both look to be distant prospects, and Pellegrini might consider the fate of his predecessor. By February...
