MANCHESTER---With the English
Premier League title slipping away,
Manchester City s Yaya Toure can-
not return quickly enough from the
African Cup of Nations to lift the
City hasn t won any of its last five
matches in all competitions, the
club s worst run since the final days
of Mark Hughes reign in 2009.
Surely, it s no coincidence that
this latest winless streak has coin-
cided with Toure s recent absence.
The team s driving force in mid-
field, he has been sorely missed while
away on international duty with
Ivory Coast at the African Cup.
Mercifully, for City, Toure is on
his way back from the tournament---
he captained the Ivorians to a first
continental title in 23 years on Sun-
day---but probably too late to be
involved in tomorrow s league game
at Stoke, which second-place City
starts seven points adrift of leader
"We can t really afford too many
more slip-ups, if any," said midfielder
James Milner, who scored with an
injury-time free kick to earn City a
disappointing 1-1 home draw with
Hull on Saturday.
City s decline has allowed the
chasing pack to close the gap.
Southampton is only four points
back in third with Manchester United
a further point adrift in fourth.
Hughes is now the manager of
Stoke and will relish an opportunity
to pile misery on his former club.
Many observers feel he was fired
unfairly by City more than five years
Stoke is traditionally a tough place
to win three points and, with Chelsea
at home to out-of-form Everton,
there s a good chance the London
club s lead can be extended tomor-
row in the 25th round of fixtures.
Here are some other things to look
out for in the midweek round of
Man United s Plan B: With his
expensively assembled forward line
misfiring, Man United manager Louis
van Gaal is finding attacking solu-
tions in his Plan B from the substi-
tutes bench---Marouane Fellaini.
Fellaini s height and presence has
offered United a different kind of
threat late in games. He came on to
score United s opener in a 2-0 win
at Queens Park Rangers two weeks
ago and his second-half arrival Sun-
day changed the game at West Ham
where Daley Blind scored an injury-
time equaliser in a 1-1 draw.
"We couldn t cope with the long
balls Manchester United kept putting
in the box (toward Fellaini)," West
Ham manager Sam Allardyce said.
Fellaini is likely to be on the bench
again when United hosts Burnley
Liverpool s concerns: Liverpool
could be without three players who
have been instrumental in the team s
recent revival for today s match
against Tottenham, which is a key
fixture in the fight for Champions
Holding midfielder Lucas Leiva
and forwards Raheem Sterling and
Philippe Coutinho were all hurt dur-
ing a 0-0 draw at Everton Saturday
and are doubts, according to Liver-
pool manager Brendan Rodgers.
It may persuade Rodgers to give
a first start to Daniel Sturridge since
the striker s return from five months
out injured. Sturridge has come on
as a substitute in Liverpool s last
A win for Liverpool would move
it a point behind fifth-place Tot-
Pardew, Newcastle reunited: Six
weeks after leaving Newcastle fol-
lowing four turbulent years at St
James Park, Alan Pardew will take
on his former club for the first time
as Crystal Palace manager tomor-
Pardew has won five of his six
matches since joining Palace in early
January, a run of form that has lifted
the club away from relegation trou-
ble.Pearson s last game?: Leicester
has rejected widespread reports in
the British media that its manager,
Nigel Pearson, will be fired, with the
team in last place and on a run of
three straight losses.
The pressure is on Pearson,
though, and a trip to Arsenal today
is hardly the kind of fixture Leicester
needs in its situation---especially as
Arsenal s star forward, Alexis
Sanchez, is available again after
Pearson came under scrutiny dur-
ing a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace Sat-
urday when he placed his hands
round the neck of Palace midfielder
James McArthur, after the player slid
off the pitch into the technical area.
Also tomorrow, it s: Southampton
vs West Ham and West Bromwich
vs Swansea. Today, it s: Hull vs Aston
Villa and Sunderland vs Queens Park
