Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini was a happy man following his team's 3-0 dismantling of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, City's third straight Premier League win. The star of the show was evidently Sergio Agüero, who scored a hat-trick, but the entire team had a fantastic all-around performance.

Pellegrini praised what his men accomplished in London, called Agüero the best goalscorer in the Premier League, and hopes to continue to build momentum for the Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid. Here's a look at the Chilean's quotes:

"I'm very satisfied. The team played very well in attack and defence. "We knew before the game it would be difficult here but we also wanted revenge for the FA Cup game that we had to play a young team, and they beat us.

"It was a complete game and a very important three points in the Premier League because we want to finish as near to the top of the table as we can.

"Sergio makes the difference when he’s playing every game, every week. He is a very important player. I am sure he is the best striker in this league.

"The best way to arrive at a semi-final is when you are winning games, and to not only win but to win the way we did here because it was a complete performance with and without the ball.

"The most important thing is to keep focusing on the league as we need to play for six more Premier League points before the semi-final."
