Having not won in the English Premier League for four matches, Manchester City fans had begun to worry about their side’s chances of reaching the top four come the end of the season.
The visit of Hull City to the Etihad gave them the perfect chance to get back on track and Pep Guardiola’s side didn’t disappoint their supporters.
Winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero and Fabian Delph, along with an own goal, the Citizens powered to a comfortable victory.
However, as this stat from Squawka shows, one thing still blights City as they attempt to string together a consistent series of results in the tail-end of the season. They simply can’t stop conceding at home.
Man City have kept just 3 clean sheets in 15 Premier League home games this season.

It’s something that Guardiola needs to address quickly or he risks seeing City’s season go off the rails completely over the coming weeks.
With just seven games remaining, City need to win almost all of them if they’re to secure a top four finish and with over half of those matches coming at home, they need to improve massively in a defensive sense in front of their own fans.
