Five things that have gone wrong for Manchester City

Leicester City Vs Manchester City: Massive injury boost for Citizens

"So, pretty ideal day for us, not a flawless performance but really good performance". Football is [that] you are able to win a lot of games and you are able to lose a lot of games.

City have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine games but the manager says they have been unfortunate with the goals they have conceded.

Manchester City'were left to contemplate another Premier League defeat as they were beaten by Leicester (Nick Potts/PA).

"The fact is we lost three in four, and the last two, and if you want to be real contenders we have to win again".

There was a time when Man City's goalscoring form meant they had a so-called "extra point" with their superior goal difference; that has now been wiped out by the Reds' near-impregnable defence. We play Arsenal and City [in our next two games], so it's good that we have six or seven points more than other teams.

The problems are mounting up for Guardiola as Liverpool extended their lead at the top to leave City ruing a week either side of Christmas that threatens to see the trophy prised from their grasp.

"Look at the results they've lost there - Crystal Palace and Leicester, and they'll be very disappointed with Palace having been at home as well". "We were better and then they score".

Kevin De Bruyne made his first Premier League start of the season following a pair of medial knee ligament injuries, while similarly influential playmaker David Silva returned from a hamstring injury as a substitute. "We know when you play Chelsea and City it's hard to have the ball but you must have this mentality to defend together and try to use good recovery and fast passes to break", he said. We had more chances than them.

"We are going to miss a little bit of the final pass, the final assist, the last shot and teams are punishing us: [Andros] Townsend [for Palace], today it was another fantastic goal [by Ricardo]".

A corner by Albrighton was cleared poorly by Sane and Ricardo drilled the ball inside the far post.

"We have to accept it, we have to realise that we have to work harder and try to get immediately one good result and get our confidence back".
