Manchester City's week in pictures - The man in the hoodie short of answers

Manuel Pellegrini

The past seven days for Manchester City has left them looking to react after back-to-back defeats.

The past seven days haven't exactly gone the way that Manuel Pellegrini would have been hoping.

When he woke up on Saturday, he was looking at the possibility of a treble, which would be a remarkable achievement for a manager in his first year of coaching in England.

When he wakes up today, City have been dumped out of the FA Cup by Wigan for the second season running and have exited the Champions League thanks to Barcelona.

We've taken a look back at the week for Manchester City in picture form.

Few Manchester City fans would have expected their side to lose against Wigan for a second year, specially as they were at home.

Wigan got stuck in, made things difficult and tempers boiled over but it was the Championship side which left the Premier League team with egg on their face.

The boss, sporting his Manchester City hoody, couldn't work out what was going on in a state of disbelief.

A big think was needed before the game against Barcelona.

Once City got over to Spain, Vincent Kompany was in bullish mood as he took questions at City's pre-match press conference.

He was as professional as ever, defending his side following the Wigan performance and insisting that City could turn things around at the Nou Camp.

City trained on the eve of the Barcelona game and got together for a team huddle and chat.

The message was clear; play good, sensible and attacking football to get back into the game.

Pellegrini, banned from the touchline, looked in a good mood as things got under way at the Nou Camp.

He certainly wasn't smiling at the final whistle.

Vincent Kompany bagged a goal on the night for Manchester City but the side lost 2-1 and the tie 4-1 over the two legs.

This image of the Manchester City captain after the game pretty much sums up the club's past week.
