Pellegrini: City will attack
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini will send his players out against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night targeting nothing less than all three points.
The Etihad Stadium will play host to the German giants - the reigning Champions League holders and Group D favourites - and Pellegrini is urging his men to go on the offensive from the very first whistle.
Having seen City suffer a shock 3-2 defeat at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday, Pellegrini said: "I always expect a big response from the players. We have started very well in this Champions League and it's very important to continue.
"The game we are going to play at home is against the most difficult team in the group. We need a high level of performance and I'm sure we'll see a very good game.
"It was very important to win the first game against Viktoria Plzen. The second thing is to try and win points at home against a very strong team. We are in a very good moment, so we hope we can take the three points.
"We are not thinking of a draw. Of course, if we can't win, then it's better to draw than to lose but we aren't going to go on the pitch thinking of a draw. We will go from the first minute to win the three points.
"I think that tomorrow we need to play 90 minutes in the best way, knowing that every mistake we can lead to conceding a goal. It's very important we concentrate for the whole 90 minutes."
Pellegrini also confirmed that Spain playmaker David Silva will return to the squad for the game having finally shaken off a thigh injury, adding: "David is in the squad list. He can play at least some minutes."
