Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists City have Improved under him, despite the fact that they could miss on securing Champions League football for next season.
Pellegrini's men drew 2-2 with Arsenal on Sunday in the Chilean's final home game in charge ahead of Pep Guardiola's arrival in the summer.
City's failure to beat Arsenal means finishing inside the top four is now out of their hands as Manchester United, who sit just two points behind in the Premier League table, have a game in-hand over their rivals.
The 62-year-old won one league title and two Capital One Cups during his three-year spell in charge, and is adamant the team have got better under his tutelage, particularly in the Champions League.
"In my time here we have improved a lot in the Champions League,” Pellegrini told BBC.“Also, for me, it's been about our style of play. There have been a lot of positive things but we must qualify again for the Champions League this season."
Manchester City could be fifth before the final day of the season, should Manchester United move into fourth with victory over West Ham on Tuesday.
