BBC Sport - Man City's extra day's rest not decisive - Manuel Pellegrini

Schedule not decisive - Pellegrini

Manuel Pellegrini says Manchester City's extra day's rest after Champions League action will not be decisive when his side host Arsenal in the Premier League.

Arsenal's Mikel Arteta had suggested the league leaders would be at a disadvantage in Saturday's early kick-off after playing in Naples on Wednesday night, while City played in Munich on Tuesday.

Pellegrini also says that "six or seven teams" are in the hunt for the title and that the game is City's chance to take three points from "the best team at the moment in the Premier League".
