Man City take on Sunderland on Thursday 1st January, 2015, with kickoff at 15:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.

Throwing away a lead against Burnley was the first slip-up City have made in some seven games, and this game can only have one positive outcome for the reigning champions if truth be told. The fact Chelsea dropped points last time out means City don’t have a great gap to make up, and what should be a routine win over Sunderland will get Pellegrini’s side back on track.

From Sunderland’s point of view this is a big test, after they lost just one of their last five, and if Gus Poyet can get a result it’ll be a famous day for the fans and players.
