Manchester City will be looking to return to winning ways today when they take on Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side will head into the Premier League clash on the back of a 2-2 draw with Burnley at home on Sunday.
City conceded twice in the second half after going 2-0 up in the first period to drop two points, which saw them remain three points behind leaders Chelsea in second.
Meanwhile, Sunderland currently find themselves 14th in the league table with 20 points from 19 matches, just four points above third-from-bottom Crystal Palace.
The Black Cats played out a goalless draw with Aston Villa away from home on Sunday and will be eying an upset at the Etihad Stadium today.
Manchester City XI:
