It hasn’t been an easy few weeks for Manuel Pellegrini and his Man City side, and last night it got even harder. In recent weeks, City have drawn to CSKA Moscow and lost to West Ham and Newcastle, having put in some very lacklustre performances. In their must win home clash against CSKA in the Champions League last night, ill discipline and an utter lack of fight saw them lose to a team who had never won in England before.
Manuel Pellegrini said after the game that he doesn’t understand why his team struggle so much in the Champions League and to be honest, who can blame him? One fan at the game became so bored and disinterested in the match that he took the time to prepare himself a sandwich in the stands.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the game:
What is wrong with Man City right now? Pellegrini must come under pressure if they fail again in the Champions League

Man City's Champions League performances are one of the great mysteries of modern time.

96 – Man City conceded after 96 seconds against CSKA; the quickest goal ever shipped by them in the Champions League. Stunned.

#MCFC fans chanting: "The Champions League is f***ing bent." Ref isn't the only one who doesn't look up to Champions Lge standard, though.

Pellegrini should be sacked. Absolutely terrible that this City team couldn't beat CSKA at home.

No excuses, if this was Spain then Pellegrini would be sacked, blame the players all you want but he has ultimate responsibility
