Newcastle 0-2 Manchester City: Man City deserved win - Pellegrini

Manuel Pellegrini says Manchester City "deserve to continue" in the League Cup after a hard-fought 2-0 victory at Newcastle United.

The City manager believes the result is important because it means some of his fringe players are now guaranteed more playing time against Leicester City in the last eight of the competition.

Goals from Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko in extra-time gave City the win on Tyneside.
