Man City remain 4th in the Premier League table after failing to defeat Manchester United in the Manchester derby.

The Citizens have 65 points, just 1 point behind 3rd placed Liverpool who have played a game more than them.

Middlesbrough offers them the chance to keep up the pace with Liverpool and stay ahead of Manchester United.

City have 2 wins from their last 5 games, losing 1 and drawing the remaining 2.

Away from home, they have won 4 of their last 6 games in the league and they will see this as a real opportunity against a struggling team.
