Pellegrini: Christmas fixtures not fair on Man City

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is unhappy with the festive fixture schedulers for making his team play two games in three days when rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea will all have an extra day's rest.

It's not fair, it should be the same for all teams.

I don't know if the word is ridiculous but playing 46 hours from one game to another is not the best thing for the players - they cannot recover in 46 hours.

All the teams must have the same rest. Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool all of them play after (December) 26 and 29. And we play 26 and 28.

– Manuel Pellegrini.
