"Seven points to Liverpool is starting to be a lot, we are not in a good moment, but tomorrow is another day". John Stones played in the holding role against Palace before dropping back into defence with City 3-1 down and chasing a game they eventually lost 3-2. "Today we finished the [first] leg of the season, we have an incredible amount of points". "In a normal situation we are fighting to be champions".

A second successive league loss over the festive period has left the Blues trailing leaders Liverpool by seven points with a resurgent Spurs, who leapfrogged us into second place, also challenging.

"But last season, while there were many teams that did well, we were fantastic". The reality is there are two or three teams better than us. However the extent to which Benitez's men "cracked up" is often exaggerated - it took an 11-game winning streak by Manchester United to break Liverpool.

City have a chance to close in on the leaders when they play Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on January 3 but first they travel to Southampton in four days' time to face a side who have improved significantly under new boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash between Liverpool and Arsenal, Sports Mole selects a strongest combined XI from the two squads.

Manchester City's shocking collapse has seen them lose three games in four - leaving them third behind Tottenham. I have to reflect and think about what the team needs and how to help them.

"I thought it was because of us!" "I don't forget who we are, how good we are, how exceptional the lads are in the locker rooms". Except five to 10 minutes at the end of the first half [we played well], the second half was no big issue.

Manchester City were hit by a stunner for the second time in the space of four days as Ricardo Pereira's late strike sent them home from Leicester with no points.

The Frenchman's return to fitness and form in the early weeks of the season promised to give City an extra dimension to their attacking play, but he has been sidelined again since early November. "It's quite similar to Stamford Bridge".
