Not so long ago it seemed possible that Manchester City would go unbeaten for the entire season. Now, after three defeats in their last four Premier League games, they appear not just fallible, but rattled. What has changed? Vulnerability encouraging the lesser lights.

If Manchester City’s relentless brilliance created an impenetrable sky blue wall around the Premier League trophy last season, this term they are rolling out the red carpet.

Saturday’s surprise 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United means they now trail runaway leaders Liverpool by 14 points, a chasm that manager Pep Guardiola called “not realistic” as a target.

City have dropped eight points in their last five top-flight games, allowing Leicester – now on a club record eight-match winning streak – to build a six-point cushion in second place.

Chelsea are in striking distance just behind them, while it is conceivable that Tottenham will soon be putting pressure on their top-four status, too.

So, where has it all gone wrong for the midfielder? Jonjo Shelvey's future at Swansea is growing increasingly uncertain. It has been a strange season for Swansea and stranger still for Shelvey, once the rain-maker of their midfield but whose place at the club is now increasingly uncertain.

Just six months after a domestic treble that had some wondering if it was becoming too easy for City, the question now is: just where has it all gone wrong?

No clean sheets in their last nine fixtures in all competitions tells its own story and the ease with which United tore through the hosts was, at times, embarrassing.

Injuries to Aymeric Laporte and, to a lesser extent, Oleksandr Zinchenko have robbed City of two of their defensive mainstays and neither has been adequately replaced.

Fernandinho’s redeployment at centre-back has weakened both defence and midfield, while at left-back Benjamin Mendy has not rediscovered form and Angelino has not looked up to City’s standards.

A shock FA Cup defeat at Coventry City proved to be the final straw for Mark Hughes at Stoke, but where did it all go wrong ?

But there are wider issues. Leroy Sane’s long-term injury has further weakened the left flank, while there has been an apparent drop-off in the intensity levels that Guardiola demands.

Their crown has slipped but there are still three trophies to play for. Whether the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach can make them look untouchable again is another matter.

Could Rodgers undo Liverpool?

That Leicester are the only banana skin in the path of Liverpool’s procession to a first title for 30 years should be no surprise by now, such has been their improvement under former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

On Sunday they reached a club record eight consecutive top-flight victories with a swagger, swatting aside Aston Villa 4-1. And it could easily have been more.

Scoring in all eight of those games has been Jamie Vardy, who took his total for the campaign to 16 with two more at Villa and is five clear of his nearest rival in the division’s scoring charts.

While the notion of Rodgers’ new team mounting a title challenge to his old one is appealing, it seems more likely Leicester and City will be tussling to be the best of the rest.

Reds’ bandwagon rolls on

No Mohamed Salah in midweek against Everton, no Sadio Mane on Saturday at Bournemouth, no matter for Liverpool, who simply racked up two more three-goals wins.

This month was supposed to be when Jurgen Klopp’s men buckled under the weight of a fixture list that also includes a trip to Qatar for the Club World Cup next week.

While that is still to come and they must visit Leicester on Boxing Day, there is no sign of any let-up yet; if anything, Liverpool have gone from strength to strength.

Whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can ever win over all of his detractors is debatable, but the United manager may have persuaded a few swing voters after a landmark week.

Cheryl Tweedy – formerly Fernandez-Versini and Cole – has had almost as many UK number one singles as she has high profile break-ups. The popstar has looks and a career that would be the envy of most, but she can't seem to hold down a relationship.

Wins over his predecessor Jose Mourinho’s resurgent Spurs and then United’s noisy neighbours have been every bit as deserved as they have surprising, with even £52m misfit Fred looking reborn.

Fuelling seven wins from 11 games is Marcus Rashford’s purple patch of 13 goals in 14 for club and country. How Solskjaer needs him to stay fit and firing if the Norwegian is to remain in favour.
