Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini rued his side dropping two points against Burnley, after the Clarets came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at the Etihad.

Goals from David Silva and Fernandinho left the Citizens comfortably 2-0 up at half time, but a stirring comeback from the newly-promoted Burnley saw George Boyd and Ashley Barnes level the score and end City's five-game winning run at home in the league.

Pellegrini said his side lost intensity in the second half and that it was a chance missed to bring themselves closer to table-toppers Chelsea, who drew 1-1 at Southampton earlier that day.

The result leaves Manchester City on 43 points, three behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, with half the season's games now played. Despite missing the chance to put further pressure on the Blues, Pellegrini said that 43 points is a good total so far, and that we was still confident his side would come out on top in the second half of the season.
