The Citizens manager is under pressure following a run of three games without a win. He is not likely to be sacked soon, but if this poor form continues, then he will be under pressure before long.

Apparently the Chilean hasn’t taken the team far enough in the Champions League, despite having won the Premier League and the Capital One Cup in his first year.

If he fails to to win the League again this year, and doesn’t manage to get City out of their Champions League group then the 61-year-old could be replaced next summer.
