It was another difficult afternoon for Manchester City in the Premier League yesterday, as their win-less run in all competitions was extended to five matches following a 1-1 draw with Southampton.
Pep Guardiola’s side have let their lead at the top of the table slip and the title race is now wide open, with City, Arsenal and Liverpool all on 20 points – whilst Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are just one behind.
The former Barca man initially took the Premier League by storm with a tremendous winning run to open his tenure as Citizens boss. But questions are now being asked, particularly after he benched Sergio Aguero for last week’s defeat to Barcelona and took off Kevin De Bruyne early in the match against Southampton.
Whilst fans will be worrying after City’s divisional rivals closed the gap on them, striker Sergio Aguero has rallied the troops ahead of a big run of fixtures for the title favourites, which could well define their season.
We didn't get what we set out to obtain, but we're still in the race. There's room for growth and we've got the drive for it. C'mon, City!

The Argentine striker has not scored in City’s last five games, all of which have seen the Citizens fail to secure a victory, and he’ll be looking to rekindle his form in front of goal for the forthcoming fixtures – which sees the Etihad outfit take on Manchester United, West Brom and Barcelona before next Tuesday.
