Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has played down talk of the club winning the quadruple this year.

City are through to the League Cup final after beating Everton in midweek and second in the Premier League.

They are also in the knockout stages of Champions League and face Aston Villa in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

But Pellegrini said: "If I start talking about it, it will make it look as though I am thinking about it. It is not a realistic target."

Villa are bottom of the top flight but the Midlands side held City to a goalless draw in November's league fixture.

"We have to look at Aston Villa. If we don't beat them it is all over," added Pellegrini.
