WINNING every game is the sole focus for Manchester City and manager Manuel Pellegrini after the demolition of West Ham earned a place in the League Cup final at Wembley.

City beat the Hammers 6-0 in the semi-final first leg and were again ruthless at Upton Park as Alvaro Negredo scored twice and Sergio Aguero also netted in a 3-0 second-leg victory to seal a 9-0 aggregate triumph.

On form, it appears an unprecedented quadruple is not beyond a scintillating City, but Pellegrini vowed only to continue playing in the same vein.

"I'm very proud of the team that we are still in four competitions," Pellegrini said.

"We are not thinking about that (winning all four competitions). We are thinking just to win every match.

"Now we've finished with the League Cup until March. It's very important to continue in the FA Cup, so we must win against Watford on Saturday.

"We'll continue with the same winning and ambitious mentality.

"We have a lot of work to do. In the FA Cup we are just in the fourth round. In the Champions League we have a tough game against Barcelona. The Premier League's very close and it will still be close till the end between four or five teams."
