Leicester City 2 Manchester City 1

Leicester City 2 Manchester City 1

"We're going to Leicester needing to win", he told a news conference.

Leicester are now ninth in the Premier League after notching up 25 points from their 18 league games so far this season.

After taking the lead at the King Power Stadium through Bernardo Silva, they cracked under pressure with Leicester's comeback goals coming from Marc Albrighton and Ricardo Pereira.

The result leaves City third in the table, a point behind Tottenham, who smashed Bournemouth 5-0 at home, and seven adrift of Liverpool, who hammered Newcastle 4-0 as the Premier League went goal insane on Boxing Day.

"Of course we dropped points, that happens, but after that we were always there, which is the most remarkable thing and what I give the most importance".

The reigning champions have lost three of their past four top-flight outings and lie seven points behind Liverpool, whose closest challengers are now Tottenham - six points back of the leaders. If we make the same points in the second half of the season, we are fighting to win the Premier League.

Manchester City only lost twice in all of 2017-18 as they became the champions, but this loss was their second in five days after a shock 3-2 home defeat by Crystal Palace on Saturday. Football is [that] you are able to win a lot of games and you are able to lose a lot of games. Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both came off the bench against Palace after dealing with injuries over the past few weeks.

Paul Pogba - so often marginalized under Mourinho - struck a double in that game as he scored for the first time since October.

City bounces back, gets a huge game from Gabriel Jesus and takes home the three points.

Most Blues agree that Fernandinho is one of Manchester City's most important player - perhaps the most important considering the lack of alternatives available for his role. Leicester climb to seventh and this result, on the back of a 1-0 win at Chelsea, will do much to quell murmurs of discontent around manager Claude Puel.

"You have to think about how to solve it when you don't have players in a position".
