As Manuel Pellegrini’s side fell six points behind league leaders Leicester with a 1-3 defeat at the Etihad, these were the best Man City jokes.
Two goals from Robert Huth and a stunner from Riyad Mahrez handed the visiting Foxes a famous victory, one which has seen them emerge as the bookies’ title favourites for the first time.

It was nice of Leicester to let a minnow like Man City get that late goal so the home fans had something to cheer for.
