Ricardo Pereira scores stunning victor for Leicester against Manchester City

Indeed, every other club has lost at least three times in the top flight, highlighting just how impressive and relentless Klopp's team have been. Football is that you are able to win a lot of games and you are able to lose a lot of games.

Guardiola admitted Liverpool and Tottenham are better than his City team at the moment - and he is desperate for a win as soon as possible.

City have dropped down to third in the league standings, with Tottenham Hotspur's 5-0 win over Bournemouth taking them up to second.

To compound Manchester City fans' woes, rivals Manchester United recorded a comfortable 3-1 win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford - their second win in two games under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he took over from the sacked Jose Mourinho. "I'm really naive, I thought that is really nice 'thank you very much.' Then now I heard after the game it was about another result". 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.

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.

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. The former Norwich star has five goals and three assists in his first season at King Power Stadium.

"Now there will be doubts, and what you have to do is try to change the dynamic to winning and put in a good performance", Guardiola told Sky Sports. We practice little details, the same way as during three years together.

City, meanwhile, are playing an entirely different game now: catch-up rather than pace-setting, meaning they can not afford and surely will not take the same approach as at Anfield-timid, respectful, happy to settle for a point.

"I'm sure they'll answer them, I'm not questioning them in that way, but I think it's nice we have someone chasing this City side".
