Man City must get angry as misfires against top clubs derail their season

Leicester City move six points clear atop the Premier League with a 3-1 win over Manchester City.
Claudio Ranieri wants the Leicester fans to keep on dreaming of winning the title.
Robert Huth feels despite their 3-1 win over Man City, Leicester are still title underdogs.
Paul Mariner says Leicester announced themselves as serious title contenders after their stunning victory at Man City.

Prem Forecaster: Leicester now title faves, Newcastle clear of drop zone

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol lambastes Manchester City for their inability to defend.

When Leicester travelled to the Etihad Stadium last year, they returned contemplating a 2-0 defeat, a six-game winless run and a league position that left them seven points from safety. Around 11 months later, a superb 3-1 win on Saturday increased the gap at the top of the table to five points as the unlikeliest title challenge in years continues to gather strength.

What's trending: Liverpool ticket protest, Lavezzi to China

Paul Mariner thinks the fan protest against Anfield ticket prices may have influenced Liverpool's late collapse against Sunderland.

Here are the top stories from Monday:

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp told a news conference that "everyone at the club wants to find a solution. We don't want people to leave the stadium" as all the talk is about the ticket protest walkout in Saturday's match. Liverpool's owners are reviewing their decision but have cancelled a planned Q&A session on the club website.
