Manchester City's attacking players have been ordered to become even more clinical when they face Arsenal on Saturday.

That's the edict from Blues boss Manuel Pellegrini, who believes his free-scoring side are still not playing to their absolute potential.

Most observers would argue the Chilean is being hyper-critical with his team having scored an incredible 41 goals from their opening 15 games, and they can be backed at 10/1 to beat Arsenal 2-0 on Saturday lunchtime.

But Pellegrini was also in charge of a Real Madrid side which could boast the lethal attacking prowess of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain, Kaka and Raul.

And he sees no reason why the likes of Sergio Aguero, 7/2 to open the scoring against the Gunners, Alvaro Negredo, Edin Dzeko, David Silva, Samir Nasri and Yaya Toure cannot become even more ruthless.

Pellegrini insists: "When I was at Real Madrid we had some important attacking players and this season we're scoring a lot of goals and missing a lot of chances as well.

"It's not that we have five attacks and score five times. We're having ten attacks and scoring five so we can continue to score more."

Pellegrini has a full squad of players to choose from against the current Premier League leaders. City can cut the deficit to just three points with a victory over Arsene Wenger's team and are currently 7/4 to win the Premier League title outright this season.
