Manuel Pellegrini: Started work at Manchester City on Monday

While rival boss David Moyes began his new role as Manchester United manager down the road, Pellegrini arrived at Carrington to start planning in earnest how to wrestle back the Premier League trophy from Old Trafford.

The former Malaga boss, who was officially confirmed as Roberto Mancini's replacement last month, flew into Manchester on Sunday morning, joined by right-hand man Ruben Cousillas and fitness coach Jose Cabello.

And though his new players are not due back until the end of the week, the 59-year-old was quick to acquaint himself with City's complex in Trafford.

With expectant owners and fans, Pellegrini will be keen to stay ahead in the transfer market after a double swoop for Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho and Spanish winger Jesus Navas.

A striker appears the next priority, following Carlos Tevez's departure to Juventus, with Brazil's Confederation Cup winner Fred thought to be a prime target.

While Pellegrini and Moyes will do fresh battle for superiority in city and league, the Chilean is likely to have a third title challenger in Jose Mourinho, back at Chelsea for a second spell.

City host United on 21 September, before travelling to Stamford Bridge on 26 October, but start their Premier League campaign at home to Newcastle on 17 August.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
