Man City 0-2 Middlesbrough: Manuel Pellegrini says side got nervous

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says his side got nervous after falling behind against Middlesbrough - in a match they eventually lost 2-0.

His side were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship opponents for the second season running thanks to goals from Patrick Bamford and substitute Kike.

The Premier League champions, who returned from a five-day warm-weather training trip to Abu Dhabi on Friday, faded badly in the second half against a side who thoroughly deserved their victory.
