Match Highlights View More Below

City missed the chance to close the gap on leaders Chelsea after blowing a two-goal lead against struggling Burnley.

The champions looked to be cruising to victory thanks to first-half goals from David Silva and Fernandinho, but the Clarets battled back after the break to claim a shock 2-2 draw and dent the Blues’ title hopes-  as well as ending a nine-match winning sequence.

The turkey and mince pies may be gone – well, almost – but City have continued to spread festive cheer among their flock before and after Christmas – until today.

With leaders Chelsea kicking off an hour earlier, City had the advantage of knowing by the break in this game whether they could end 2014 in pole position or not, but first, an improving Burnley had to be tackled.
