The striker, Sergio Aguero scored goal from the penalty, and the midfielder Samir Nasri goal had given the advantage to put City ahead. The Argentine Aguero, who has scored 15 in last 12 appearances, was taken off at half-time.
However, Pellegrini was delighted with goalkeeper Joe Hart for his some good saves, although the Chilean would not confirm who would face Swansea weather Joe Hart or Costel Pantilimon. Despite the uncertain goalkeeping situation at City, many bookmakers still price them as favourites for the title.
The Citizens hopefully will consider to bolster their defence against Swansea at Etihad Stadium on Sunday 1 December at 4.10pm.
With City’s 4-2 win over Viktoria Plzen, they are three points behind group leaders Bayern Munich and could finish top if they beat The Bavarians at least 3-0 on December 10.
