Pellegrini also dismissed claims he is angry about his team selection being leaked early, with his focus instead on the team picking up points.

"I am anxious about finding a team to play well and win the game".

'So many players can talk with others and I am not keeping the starting XI three or four hours before the game.

He said: "In every team I have managed, I work on set pieces the day before a match so all of the players know who will play and who won't. You've got David Beckham's team coming into Miami and Nashville as well, so if it came up, I would have a real interest".

West Ham have endured a nightmare start to the season at senior level by losing their opening four Premier League games, but there may be room to smile when they look at the Under-23s side.

'I don't worry about that.

Pellegrini, who confirmed that Jack Wilshere would be unavailable after suffering a sprained ankle in training, does not believe that knowing the team helps his opponents. "If you're going to play against Chelsea, Watford or Liverpool, you are sure it will be the same starting XI as they played the last game and they play exactly the same way".

"It's not the first time I've had bad results". I don't hide too much about the starting XI'. After that with Málaga when I arrived in the first season, the team was in the relegation zone. The new project was very good and we will see what happens in the future. "I am more confident than ever".
