Stoke win was crucial - Pellegrini

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says beating Stoke City 1-0 at home was crucial to their chances of winning the Premier League.

City were made to wait until the 70th minute to make the breakthrough when Yaya Toure finished off Aleksandar Kolarov's cross.

The win leaves Pellegrini's three points behind Chelsea in top spot, but with a game in hand.
