Man City coach Manuel Pellegrini was livid that his side missed the opportunity to make ground on Chelsea at the top of the league after letting a 2-goal lead slip against Burnley last time out and will demand a response. That doesn't bode well for a Sunderland side who struggled to create chances at Villa despite thems going down to 10-men in the opening minutes of the second half and goals continue to be a real problem.
