The first trophy of Manuel Pellegrini's time in charge of Manchester City has been delivered. The League Cup is back in City's grasp after a 38-year absence and the Chilean will be hoping it's the first of many.
However, despite that success, City's season is in danger on unraveling. A glorious December and January period saw the steamroller almost every side put in front of them, but a shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Wigan at the weekend has ended their best hope of a second trophy, and by the end of their match with Barcelona this week they are likely to have been knocked out of the Champions League.
They still remain in the hunt for the Premier League title, although, nine points behind with three games in hand is a daunting situation, especially with Chelsea's ability to pick up wins when not necessarily at their best.
Here, we focus on the positives of Pellegrini's tenure to-date, by analysing his 11 best moves as manager so far.
