Manuel Pellegrini has blamed the errors that are rampant in his team for their latest predicament and stating it is ugly to watch.
City’s 2-0 loss to Stoke City sent them down to fourth on the log, with Pellegrini seeing a loss to the title race if things continue.
Pellegrini blamed the defensive errors for the ugly look City wore.
Asked whether City have a split personality, Pellegrini said: “I hope not because I am disappointed about [those] three games during this season.
“Just three games. We have played 25 games this season so I don’t like to lose in that way but I hope that was the last one – not the last defeat because you can lose against everyone – but in that sense, yes.”
Pellegrini added: “We need to [improve] because we’re too ugly [in those]. You can lose against every team here in England but you can’t lose so ugly.
“It’s an important thing that we analyse why but I know exactly what to expect from this team every game.”
