“We have to play them at home, we have to play Leicester so we have to keep the head up keep working and keep sticking together,” the 32-year-old said.

Asked what City need to do to return to winning ways the ex-Arsenal star reflected: “A bit of luck and a bit of quality going forward and defending.”
