A buoyant Manchester City will aim to continue their resurgence today when they face Leicester City, the Premier League’s bottom club.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men trailed leaders Chelsea by eight points after being held to a 2-2 draw at QPR on November 8.
However, the Premier League champions have since reeled off six wins on the spin in all competitions, breathing new life into their season.
They are now only three points adrift of Chelsea and will head to Leicester in high spirits after securing a place in the last 16 of the Champions League with an impressive 2-0 victory at Roma on Wednesday.
In contrast to their opponents this weekend, Leicester come into the game in dismal form, having gone 10 matches without a win.
