Manchester City Manager Manuel Pellegrini spoke following the Blues come-from-behind 2-1 UEFA Champions League Group Stage victory over Borussia Monchengladbach.

"It was a strange game. With 65 minutes played, both teams had chances to score. After that, we really dominated and made chances.

"They played better than us, especially defensively because we didn't defend well but after that, we had a strong reaction for the last 30 minutes and finally we won the game. I must say Borussia played very, very well.

"We knew before the game they're a very fast team and they're able to recover metres between midfield and their box.

"Joe Hart made brilliant saves but we also had chances that we didn't score. Maybe after 65 minutes, Borussia could have been winning 3-2, or it could have been 3-3 or 4-4. There were so many chances."

"We had a bit of luck to win the game. Against Juventus and West Ham we didn't deserve to lose and maybe today, we didn't deserve to win but we did."
