  • Manchester City drop to third after losing to Leicester

Manchester City's bid to retain the Premier League title suffered a major blow as the champions crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Wednesday (Dec 26).

City dominated possession throughout, but after Andros Townsend's incredible volley for Palace on Saturday they were hit by another wonder strike when Ricardo Pereira fired home nine minutes from time.

Nonetheless, with or without Silva, Leicester will have to produce an even better performance than they did against Chelsea last week to be able to get anything off City. "We have to be really in the mood and have tunnel vision and see where it will leave us".

Klopp though, celebrating his 100th Liverpool win, is in no mood for complacency: "The six-point lead means nothing", he said. Last season we dropped points and immediately won again.

The 32-year old has five goals and two assists in just 14 Premier League appearances this season, a tally that's bettered by only one Leicester player, James Maddison (five goals and three assists), who has three more appearances. They scored with their first attempt after 44 minutes, Crystal Palace scored two goals from their first two attempts and today the first attempt was a goal.

When Delph was dismissed for a high challenge on Pereira in the dying moments, Guardiola's misery was complete.

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the season was never seriously under threat from visiting Newcastle, managed by former boss Rafa Benitez. Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both came off the bench against Palace after dealing with injuries over the past few weeks. 'We lost again and have to accept it but in all the games (City lost) we were better.

With Delph now facing a three-game ban and Benjamin Mendy injuried, Ukranian Oleksandr Zinchenko may be drafted in to play left-back against Liverpool, with Danilo and Aymeric Laporte other options. We have to think about Southampton, recover mentally and recover what we are like a team.

Tottenham leapfrog City into second after thrashing Bournemouth 5-0, while Manchester United's ideal start under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continued with Paul Pogba scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Huddersfield.

"The depth of squad they've got. the quality they've got and they can go out and win games convincingly".
