The Chilean tactician has faced an uncertain time of late, with the Mirror mentioning names such as Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone as possible candidates being considered by City chiefs to replace him as manager.

Still, it looks like the club will stick with the former Malaga boss if he can keep the team in second place, where they currently sit one point above third-placed Arsenal.

The Premier League title looks out of reach for this season with Chelsea so far ahead, but City are willing to accept runners-up spot despite no other silverware at the Etihad Stadium in this disappointing season.

City won the league and the Capital One Cup in Pellegrini’s first season in charge, and his earlier success seems set to buy him some time to put things right again.
