Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini addressed reporters following Saturday's 2-0 win over Watford. Here is a selection of quotes.

"I think that we played this game in exactly the same way as the other three - as a very consistent team,"

"We had four very different rivals but we found the solution for each to win the game. Watford defended very well in the first-half so we didn't create many chances.

"I think that half-time was important to make the change (Samir Nasri for Jesus Navas). We had a lot of possession in the first half but didn't create many chances.

"Making that (halftime) change with Nasri on the left, a more-free David on the right and having Raheem close to Kun was the way we must try to do it and I'm happy that it worked."

"I think that playing with creative players like Yaya, Nasri, Kun - Raheem will score goals."

"He's (Sterling) not just a scoring player though, he works a lot in the game and is good at one-v-ones which is something we perhaps needed to improve upon.

"He's (Sterling) demonstrating that he's not an expensive player, he's a good player."
