Manuel Pellegrini says he can handle the pressure, despite Manchester City's recent downturn in form.
The Chilean's side have failed to win their last win in their last five games and are now seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea.
City travel to Stoke on Wednesday in hope they will turn their form around.
"I never feel pressure, I have repeated the same answer for the same question for the last two years.
"The only pressure is my own pressure that I make myself when I don't feel the team is playing well.
"I think we are in a normal position, we are involved in the Champions League. If we win tomorrow we will have just two points less than (the same stage) last season.
"We have a lot of things to think about, more important than pressure. I don't feel any pressure inside the club or outside."
