Pep Guardiola's Manchester City went into the month of December with an unbeaten record but lost to Chelsea on the 8th and have now lost back-to-back games against Crystal Palace and Leicester City, dropping the champions down to third place in the table.

Pep Guardiola's men took the lead through Bernardo Silva, but Marc Albrighton would equalise for the Foxes and the score ended 1-1 at half-time.

The Citizens lost their second game in their last three games over the weekend.

Liverpool, meanwhile, face Arsenal and Guardiola warned his rivals that it can be hard to lead from the front when everybody expects you to win.

Ricardo blasted in a victor from the edge of the penalty area in the 81st minute after Leroy Sane's weak header to leave Manchester City seven points behind leaders Liverpool and take them below Tottenham as well. Last season we had a big gap, this season Liverpool and Tottenham are very good. I have to think about what the team needs and then try to win again.

"We have to accept it, we have to realise that we have to work harder and try to get immediately one good result and get our confidence back".

When Delph was dismissed for a high challenge on Pereira in the dying moments, Guardiola's misery was complete.

It has been a miserable festive period so far for Guardiola's side, who have now twice surprisingly been beaten after scoring the game's opening goal. And he will be concerned about the lack of match sharpness shown by Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne who looked sluggish yesterday after injury lay-offs.

French World Cup star Pogba, sidelined by Mourinho before his departure, put the game out of Huddersfield's reach with two fine goals in the second half to underline his quality.

Leicester manager Claude Puel, reportedly under pressure, has seen his team beat Chelsea and now Manchester City in successive games to move into seventh spot. The influential Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho added the other goals in a comfortable win, the 16th of the season with three draws at its halfway point.

'Some people didn't understand why we rotated but it's not possible for players to play every three days and keep a high level, ' said the Frenchman.
